Supervision details

As a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor, I am dedicated to fostering the professional development and growth of counsellors and therapists. I believe that supervision is a collaborative process that enables practitioners to reflect on their work, acquire new skills and insights, and navigate the challenges of their practice.

I have had the privilege of training with esteemed supervisors such as Robin Shohet and Susie Orbach, and draw on their wealth of knowledge and experience in my supervision practice. My supervision style is integrative and draws on a range of theories and models, including gestalt therapy and cultural anthropology, to meet the unique needs and goals of each supervisee.

I have a wealth of experience in counselling and therapy, having worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and presenting issues, and am trained in various supervision approaches. I offer individual supervision to practitioners of all therapeutic orientations and am committed to creating a safe and supportive environment where supervisees feel comfortable exploring and challenging their thinking and developing as proficient and confident practitioners.

I currently have availability and would be happy to discuss your supervision needs. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any enquiries.

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.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
