I am an experienced supervisor working online. My experience as a facilitator encompasses a wide variety of contexts including both private and institutional settings. For example, I have lots of experience working with young people in my role as a student counsellor in a higher-education setting, and I have worked with addiction in a few alcohol and drug settings. I am also very familiar working within a short-term and long-term model, as well as having experience working with high-risk clients (e.g. self-harm, suicide, trauma, complex issues, etc.). As a supervisor, my aim is to provide a space to support you with your client work, and ultimately to help you discover, develop, and/or trust your own authentic style. Although I will generally be acting in a supervisory role, both our perspectives and experiences will be valuable components of a collaborative relationship.
My training was based on the existential-phenomenological approach, and that is a core component of how I interact with supervisees and clients, although I integrate aspects from other modalities including cognitive-behavioural therapy, solution-focused therapy, schema therapy, psychodynamic therapy, person-centered therapy, and mindfulness. I tend to work with any therapeutic approach because, in my view, how instrumental or effective an approach is in practice is more valuable than its theoretical justifications or implications.
Please feel free to contact me by email or phone (you can also leave a voicemail message if I'm unavailable), and I will respond as soon as I can.
My typical fee is £60 per 50 minute session, and my cancellation period is 48 hours prior to sessions.
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.
