Supervision details

I offer clinical supervision to experienced Counsellors as well as trainees. I have very good experience and knowledge, working with adults, young people and children. I am able to offer good tips, tools and advice when working with children in play therapy. I am able to help with using creative ways when working with young people.  I like my role to be fluid and adaptable depending on what you bring to Supervision. My roles will include being a mentor, teacher, evaluator, advisor, consultant, supporter, manager and facilitator.

I have very good knowledge and experience in setting up a private practice and also how to maintain good a practice. For example, remaining ethical, boundaries, advertising, marketing, insurance, forms, diary management and self-care. My own private practice is very successful and I am happy to pass this knowledge on. I have work in schools, Gp and other agencies as well as in private practice. I am also a counselling tutor. 

Sessions are for 1 hour or 1.5 hours which falls in line with working towards accreditation. Due to my busy schedule, I would like to stick to one Saturday a month for supervisees. I do however appreciate that this may not always be possible and I may have evenings or daytime slots available. I try my very best to be as flexible and accommodating as possible. I will use an information sheet to gather personal details from you that will help me get a better understanding of your background, work and orientation. I will keep a ‘record of session’ sheet to record notes and dates of sessions.

I am an integrative Counsellor and I have a good knowledge of each of the modalities I use, person centered, psychodynamic and CBT. Self-care, paperwork, business, reflections and thoughts are all areas that I explore with Supervisee. I have a good knowledge on the CPD’s available in my area and I also run my own workshops. I will strive to help you to become more confident within work and help explore and resolve any ethical dilemmas. I am a challenger, for me challenge means growth and so this is incorporated in my framework. I am comfortable in sharing my own experience and mistakes if the agenda is to facilitate your learning. I believe I am genuine and supportive and have a good balance between task-based qualities and relationship qualities.  I am very ambitious and confident in my work and I would hope that my enthusiasm would be encouraging to you. 

Fees: £50 per session for 1 hour & £70 for 1.5 hours  concession rates are available for trainee Counsellors and volunteers. Please ask for more details 

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.
