Supervision details

My approach to supervision is supportive, reflective and empathic as I aspire to offer a space to supervisees in which to review the caseload and to attend to their needs in the light of client work. I can adapt to different levels of professional development, having overseen trainees' work in placement for several years. I have trained on integrative supervision with the hope of being able to work across therapeutic models, not only emphasizing the importance of theoretical frameworks but also adapting to different ways of working and of being. To me, the supervisory relationship is co-created by two professionals with a shared believe: to accompany clients in a safe and ethical manner through their therapeutic process. When working as a therapist/counsellor (individuals, couples, families, groups) I am guided by the principles of the theoretical frameworks of Psychodynamic, Systemic and CBT, although some components of Person-centred and Existentialism are always present. I believe that each supervisory relationship is unique and I approach such interaction from a respectful, understanding and accepting position.  

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.
