Supervision details

Are you looking for a new supervisor or are you a trainee counsellor wanting to find your first supervisor? I am an experienced and qualified counselling/psychotherapy and mindfulness practitioner with over 10 years experience working with children and adults. I developed and lead the children and young people's counselling service at a local hospice where I am also the safeguarding officer for children. I have my own private practice working from a tranquil therapy centre in Buxton where I offer supervision and counselling on a Monday and Thursday. My experience includes working with domestic abuse, grief pre and post bereavement, creative techniques which help to work at depth with anxiety and trauma. Creative techniques can also help people to move out of cognitive defences and find new ways to explore and understand what's going on by accessing a different part of the brain.  I look forward to developing a collaborative supervisory relationship offering support and a safe place to explore your practice and help to develop skills, and facilitate a space for reflection and self growth. I am qualified  with a postgraduate certificate in supervision based on the 7 eyed model developed by Hawkins and Shohet which offers a framework suitable for working with all modalities. Supervision relationships are individual and fluid depending on the supervisee and supervisor. It can be educative, restorative, supportive, collaborative. I work integratively using humanistic, creative and transpersonal client led models/techniques. I have an initial background of psychodynamic training which can offer insight into how the past may influence the present and how to work with that therapeutically. Feel free to call me, I'm happy to talk through and explore the idea of working with me as your supervisor. It's important to find the right supervisor so I'd encourage speaking to a few supervisors and ask questions to get a sense of how you feel.  Please see my counselling profile for more information.

BACP
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.
