Supervision details

I qualified as a supervisor in 2018 and am passionate about providing a safe and collaborative space to explore my supervisee's work.   My aim's are that supervision be a place of support, learning, growth and challenge, where all of your work can be brought and reflected on.

In my supervision practice I work from a person-centred and humanistic perspective and the models I draw on include TA, gestalt, existential and focussing. 

The 3 main functions of supervision can be broken down into;

  • The Formative - the educational aspect where we develop our skills and knowledge.
  • The Normative - looking at the managerial, administrative aspects of counselling work and the quality assurance and ethical practice.
  • The Restorative - where we focus on support, facilitating growth of awareness and self-care.

When all 3 are present in the supervision relationship, this promotes both the wellbeing and professional development of the counsellor and the welfare of clients.

I'm an accredited and registered member of the BACP and have specific training and experience in working with trauma and survivors of rape and childhood sexual abuse. I'm experienced in both long-term and short-term, solutions focussed work and of working in an educational setting with students (18 years old and over).  I offer supervision to those who work with over 18's and I also offer working creatively. 

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to know more about how I work and what I offer.  

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.
