Supervision details

Supervision is where, together, you and I can create a nourishing space in which to explore and enhance your therapeutic skills, understanding of therapeutic dynamics and foster your development in this context. Something about me- I am an integrative, relational supervisor and counsellor. My theoretical orientation is based on a combination of Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Systemic and Gestalt thinking (additionally drawing upon the TA model), and the core and foundation of the therapeutic work I do is relational. At its heart, and at its best, supervision is relational too, offering a co-created way to think more deeply about therapeutic process with client welfare paramount. We will work to understand this by focussing on the relationships between you and your clients. We’ll look at how these relational dynamics might have developed, illuminated by differing theoretical foundations, and what messages they might have for us about the clients’ internal landscapes. Supervision is the space in which we can think about: “What are we making together? How are we making it? Who are we becoming as we make this?” (W. Barnett Pearce, Making Social Worlds: A Communication Perspective, 2007). All underpinning the greater understanding of what is going on for your clients, and you, in the facilitation of therapeutic process. I work face to face and by video link via Facetime and WhatsApp. Supervision fees are £60 per session, with contact between sessions negotiable, and I offer an initial assessment session free of charge.  If you would like to know more or have any questions, please do get in touch.   

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My practice in on the ground floor and the door is wide enough for a wheelchair, but the access is across gravel which might not be ideal. If there are any questions around access, please contact me.

Type of session

In person

I offer integrative, relational supervision supporting your clinical work and growth. Client welfare and the quality of therapy they receive is key.
