I offer supervision to students and qualified counsellors, psychotherapists and counselling psychologists working with individuals and couples. I supervise online via Zoom.
I am on the British Psychological Society's (BPS) Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS).
I regard supervision as an important dialogical encounter where professionals can reflect on the dynamics and impact of their work with clients. I offer a reflective and holding space where the complexities of the therapeutic relationship can be elaborated, and where therapists can develop their own professional style.
I work from an integrative perspective, with a particular reference to the psychodynamic, existential and transpersonal models. I have a keen interest in the use of art, dreams and embodiment in the therapeutic process. I have experience working with students and colleagues who practice in a variety of contexts, such as the private sector, charities, schools and educational settings, health and care institutions, as well as in private practice.
I have supervised art therapists, play therapists and drama therapists as well. I have a background in child development psychology and special needs education, and I currently work in private practice with individuals and couples as a counsellor/psychotherapist and eco-therapist.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
