I have been supervising Counsellors and Psychotherapists for more than 20 years in a variety of settings within the NHS, Education, Charitable Organisations and Private Practice. I bring a flexible and understanding approach to my supervisory relationships offering a relaxed and supportive environment for Counsellors and Psychotherapists to explore the work they are doing with their clients.

I have a good understanding of the needs of students in placement. I also have an interest in working with individuals who do not have English as a first language.
I am committed to supporting your ongoing development and learning as a practitioner.
I use Proctor's three function interactive model as the core approach to my Supervision work. The Normative, Formative and Restorative (management, learning and support) elements of this model ensure that each supervision session meets your specific needs. I have a British Psychological Society Approved Certificate in Clinical Supervision, SDS Accreditation in Clinical Supervision Level 2 (Assessed Academic Competence) SDS Accreditation in Clinical Supervision.
I offer Clinical Supervision for individuals and small groups. Supervisor Collaboration is at the centre of my work whilst recognising the importance of supervisor's role is understood ethically and also to ensure the Normative, Formative and Restorative needs we have are being met.
My practice offers a dedicated and safe space for practitioners to bring any aspect of their work where we collaboratively ensure continued professional and personal development.
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.
