I am a Qualified supervisor registered under the BACP. I studied to Diploma level for my supervision qualification. I place great emphasis on supporting supervisee's to navigate their own journey within their therapeutic or clinical supportive role. I work within Willow Therapy a practice I have developed and grown over the past 10 years. Prior to this I was a clinical therapist and a holistic teacher. I draw on my experiences of working in NHS hospitals, hospices, schools and academies over the past 20 years. I now work with families adults and children. I have worked alongside CAMHS and CAFCAS as agencies.
I work with families in crisis and am able to support clients with further links to outside agencies. This knowledge and experience is utilised when supporting my supervisee's on their own journey with their clients. I work from several theoretical models when supporting you as a counsellor. I am an integrative counselor and added my family training with the Adlerain college. I draw on these modalities when working with my supervisee's. We are all human and I believe strongly that a balanced supervisory relationship is important in order to work together. During these difficult times whilst navigating COVID support is crucial in order to manage self care and the escalating weight of client work that we see in practice today. I manage a small team here at Willow and know and value the Importance of connection, good communication and holding support. I value the learning I too gain from my supervisees and place great value on our professional and therapeutic relationship.
I have had student counsellors on placement at Willow over the years from a variety of college settings. I am able to support counsellors taking on students, utilising the extensive experience I have gained over the years.
I am consistently monitoring safety, safe practice and ethical practice inlinewith the bacp ethical framework.
I equally place great value on learning and theory and weave this into our supervisory relationship when needed and appropriate.
I have a keen interest in supporting counsellors to set up their own private practice, along with navigating any hurdles that can often present.
Please do contact me for a conversation regarding your supervision needs and requirements.
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
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).
