Supervision details

I completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision, Level 7 at the University of Derby in 2017. This training was informed by BABCP, BACP and BPS supervision standards and inclusive of supervision for IAPT practitioners, through my training I developed my own approach based on the seven-eyed model for supervision.  My clinical supervision training and experience of working in Addiction Treatment Centres, Mental Health Clinical Settings and also my private practise informs my work as a supervisor. For the past few years, I have been developing my private practice and I love to support other counsellors and psychotherapists who want to make this sometimes lonely, challenging yet rewarding transition.  I offer a warm, & supportive supervision style to private practitioners, health care professionals and organisations. If can be difficult to find a supervisor you feel confident and safe with, so I offer an initial telephone consultation free of charge to explore how we might work together.  I work in a collaborative way- exploring client content bought to counselling along with experiences, feelings and thoughts that arise with the supervisee, with regard to the relationship with the client. I support supervises in the way they choose to work with their clients.  My own client work is integrative, the core being person-centred which helps reinforce a sense of self and confidence.  My fees can be found on my website or feel free to call me to discuss further. 

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.
