Apologies but I am currently working at full capacity with Supervision and do not have availability at the moment.
Welcome and thank you for looking at my profile. To help you decide if I am the most appropriate supervisor for your needs I will give you some background information about the knowledge and skills I bring into my supervisory role; I have worked in Higher Education as a Lecturer and Supervisor of Counselling and have been a Supervisor for a Counselling Agency in Central Leicester. I hold a Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision and was trained by Professor Sue Wheeler fellow of the BACP and Professor Delia Cushway, both are highly qualified and renowned in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. Sue is well known for her research and published work on clinical supervision; the knowledge gained from this training ensures I work to a high level of competence and professionalism. I have worked in private practice for a number of years and rent full time business premises for my services, I am happy to assist and support counsellors with their own professional development. I am very flexible with times and will do my utmost to work around your busy schedules. I would like you to feel very comfortable working with me and my aim is to establish a good, honest, open and trustworthy relationship. My core training is person centred and over the years I have bolted on additional training which has included CBT and solution focused therapy. Experienced Practitioners I aim to establish a trusting relationship and offer a space where your thoughts and feelings can be confidently shared so you feel comfortable and at ease within our sessions. I will support you so you feel safe to expose any vulnerability without feeling threatened or judged; I feel it is an essential element within supervision to establish an equal power base so you do not feel inhibited and can be honest in your responses. Trainee Counsellors For those in training I will help you to become more tuned into your thoughts and feelings and encourage you to explore alternative ways of viewing situations, where you learn to develop a ‘super’ vision and become more open to alternative views. I aim to facilitate your ability to develop as a reflective practitioner and build on your internal supervisor learning to listen to your internal voice, looking at what is happening while it is happening. Alongside those skills you will already have acquired I will be working with you to look at new perspectives and to gain new awareness and insight. I charge a very competitive rate of £40 an hour for supervision and £60 for one and a half hours. My practice has ample roadside parking and is just five minutes drive from Fosse Park. If you are travelling from Leicester to Narborough train station its just a 10 minutes journey and my practice is in a quiet setting in a lovely old grade 11 listed building just 2 minutes walk from the station.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
