Supervision details

Supervision: I am a qualified supervisor and work on either a one-to-one basis or within a group, depending on preference and availability.  The supervision I offer is based within a relational framework. I'm qualified in humanistic, existential and CBT approaches; although I am happy to work with counsellors and psychotherapists from any approach, as I see the supervisory relationship as a collaborative relationship grounded in a genuine, professional and ethical space of practice. I am experienced at working with qualified counsellors and supervisors, and also trainees, as I work within the educational sphere of psychotherapy. My supervision philosophy: Being a Dr of Psychotherapy & Philosophy, I draw on a vast knowledge base and experiential life experience to help inform my relational working. My main aim is to establish a trusting relationship that is both challenging and supportive, underpinned with mutual openness, respect and understanding.  I've found that this then enables supervision to be an empowering experience for the counsellor and a place where s/he feels able to explore any areas of concern or difficulty, in the knowledge that the purpose of the work is to assist in counsellor development, focusing on ethical, professional and personal practice. In simple terms this means helping supervisees to explore general case work or specific ethical issues, with a view to finding a way forward that has both the client and counsellor’s safety and well-being at the heart of the client/counsellor relationship.  My fees: one-to-one supervision - £80 for 1.5 hours group supervision (max 4 participants) - £60 each for 3 hours  reduced rate for students - £60 for one-to-one, £50 each for group I am happy to complete any reports required by placements, agencies or training establishments, although this may incur an additional cost which will be agreed in advance.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
