Supervision details

Supervision creates an environment within which we can develop a deeper understanding of our clinical work as counsellors and therapists. It is a space for us to think together about our work, find fresh insights, and share our experiences. As a supervisor, I create a supportive environment for your work with clients as well as your own inner work and development as a practitioner. 

My work as a therapist is heavily rooted in a relational approach. I am particularly interested in building a nourishing relationship between myself and my supervisees. This relationship can then be used to acknowledge personal processes, develop skills and understanding as well as exploring challenges and questions relating to the wider counselling and psychotherapy profession. I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP and have completed training with the Centre for Supervision, Training and Development (CSTD) in Bath using the Hawkins and Shohet supervision model. I work from Orchard Street in Bristol and have availability on Tuesdays at present. My fee for supervision is £60 per 50 minute session. 

BACP
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.
