I am a qualified clinical supervisor registered with the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS) and work with both groups and individuals and practice from an existential-phenomenological perspective.
As a clinician I know from first hand experience how valuable it is to be able to reflect on my work with a fellow professional. So, while it is a requirement that all psychologists, counsellors and therapists have regular and ongoing supervision (Ethical Framework 2010), it is incredibly helpful and often mind-opening to be able to talk to another professional about anything that arises within the therapeutic space.
At the forefront of my supervisory practice is the desire to provide a safe space to discuss a range of issues regarding the therapeutic work and to give guidance towards gaining insight into the therapeutic work through listening and engaging with an attentive ear, open heart and inquisitive mind I subscribe to the view that it is the supervisor’s goal “to do whatever seems most likely to send the other person away more aware, more informed, skilled and encouraged than (s)he was when (s)he came in.” (Houston 1990, p12).
My fees for one-to-one supervision are currently set at £125 per 50 minute session and group supervision at £250 for 60 minute sessions.

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
