Supervision details

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals and Groups which meets the rigorous supervision training standards as set out by the BACP and work with both qualified and trainee therapists. 

How I work: I believe in the absolute necessity and benefit of a supportive, consultative and restorative space for you to reflect openly on different aspects of your therapeutic work, one that I also hope will encourage mutual curiosity, playfulness and learning for us both.  As we continue you may have specific supervision requirements and needs that arise, so my aim is also to provide you with an adaptable space to regularly review your caseload as well as your supervision arrangements with me.

My core model has a psychodynamic relational focus and can support a variety of therapeutic approaches. Attachment theory particularly informs my practice. I pay close attention to what may be revealed within the therapeutic dyad and supervisory space, particularly using psycho-biological understanding of early and on-going attachment experiences as well as trauma informed approaches when working with both clients and supervisees.

I also contain our supervisory frame with the Hawkins and Shohet Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision.

Individual Supervision: Supervision sessions for qualified and trainee individuals can be either 60 or 90 minutes long. 

Individual Supervision for Qualified Practitioners – £60 / £90

Individual Supervision for Trainee Practitioners – £40 / £60

Supervisor Reports: I may have a role in assessing your work or providing reports for training purposes, professional matters, or employment references.  Should it take more than 30 minutes to prepare any report, then we can agree a fee for me doing this. With the exception of an employment reference, I will always share this report with you.  

Payment and terms: Payments are to be made via bank transfer and to be paid 48 hours prior to the session.  Missed or cancelled sessions are payable in full regardless of the reason except for agreed holidays.  I will review my fees annually.

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.
