Supervision details

I am offering low cost supervision, whilst I complete my supervision training. I am happy to negotiate a reduced rate with you if you'd like to chat about it.

I use the seven-eyed model of supervision (Shohet & Watkins). I am excited to offer supervision as a reflective practice across all modalities. Supervision has always been the cornerstone of my own practice, offering support, insight and comfort. I want to offer others the space and trust that I have received. My aim is to support supervisees to work authentically and safely, learning as we go. 

It is important to me that the supervision I offer is based on a warm person-to-person collaboration. Relationships are at the heart of our work as therapists, and so I aim to support you in the way that you aspire to be with your clients.

In our work together, I will encourage you to bring both yourself and the client into the room. I feel it is important that supervisees can reflect on and explore their own responses to client work without judgement.

I have over a decade's experience as a qualified integrative therapist and counsellor, and also have extensive experience teaching counselling and research. Prior to that, I worked at the Samaritans for 12 years as a volunteer. My CPD experience spans a wide range of subjects. My academic research is into individuals who have spiritual / anomalous experiences.

Some of my  supervisees like to have all of their supervision once a month, whilst others weekly or fortnightly. I can work flexibly with you to best meet your needs. 

I have supervision of my supervisory practice. 

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

Key details

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.
