Supervision details


I am a BACP Accredited Humanistic Integrative Therapist & Supervisor with Person Centred/Psychodynamic focus.  I integrate incorporate CBT, Gestalt, TA and anything else training and experience suggests might be useful.  I am also qualified as an NHS EFT-CfD therapist. I got my BACP Accreditation in 2019. 


I qualified as a Clinical Supervisor in 2020. I work using the Seven Eyed Supervision model along with Stoltenberg and McNeill's 2010 work matching supervision pitch to the counsellor’s developmental stage, and Page & Woskett Cyclical Model too.

I support therapists of a similar training as their CORE supervisor, but also on a supplementary / consultancy basis for others looking for something extra. This includes accreditation, supporting non-UK therapists adjust to working here, career progression and so on. 


I work both within the NHS and private sector as a therapist and supervisor. I started practising 1st in a GP surgery and the Royal National Institute for the Blind in London. Then I was fortunate to get a job in IAPT and have since benefitted working with a rich diversity of clients and issues that would not have come my way if I only worked privately.

Working in the NHS gives me confidence that I can offer my clients and supervisees a gold standard knowledge of the most up to date thinking in treatment, professional working standards and training on offer.


Equity and Inclusivity and not just a vague ideal for me and my clients. I actively work to be aware and overcome any negative way this problem seeps into all aspects both personally and in our profession. If you wish to know more, do ask me about what this means in real terms.


Let's have a 5 minute chat to see if the basics (availability and so on) will work and then we will book a full assessment to see if we are a good match in terms of what you need and what I can offer. Plus you'll get a good idea of my style too, which is just as important. 

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.
