Welcome to my supervision page. I am an experienced integrative counsellor and qualified clinical supervisor and have a Postgraduate Certificate in Supervision. I work to the BACP ethical framework in both my counselling and supervision practices and receive monthly supervision myself. I have 12 years experience in counselling and psychotherapy. My initial counselling training was person-centred, and I believe that person centred concepts underpin the counselling work, I am an integrative counsellor and also work extensively with CBT, Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic and Existential theories.. As supervisor my approach is friendly, collaborative, professional and supportive, encouraging you in your counselling work and training. I believe the supervisee/supervisor relationship is integral to the work, and my aim is to help you to explore any matters of concern with your client work, resolve ethical dilemmas, promote an awareness for self care and share any thoughts, feelings or experiences that you may have, in a safe space. My counsellor profile outlines areas of my work experience. Supervision is available via telephone or Skype if you would prefer. Supervision is a place for self reflection and professional and personal growth, contributing to enhanced knowledge, skills and safe and ethical practice. Also, and importantly, it is your supervision and so we will work with anything that would be useful for you.
In addition to counselling and supervision my experience also includes teaching counselling at City College Peterborough. I understand the demands on trainee counsellors and the training process.
I am involved with the charities Don't Lose Hope based in Bourne, and Little Miracles in Peterborough providing clinical supervision for the counsellors on their counselling placement and the clinical lead. If you would like to make an appointment please email, telephone or text. I work from my private practice in Bourne, Lincolnshire. Prices: £45 for 1 hour supervision. £60 for 1.5 hour supervision. Concessions for student counsellors £47.50 for a 1.5 hour session.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
