Supervision details

I can offer Supervision appointments face-to-face and online, the length of each session and their frequency is dependent on your caseload, your placement, and if a student, your training institution’s requirements. 

I am experienced in providing supervision for both trainees and senior practitioners.

My Professional Qualifications started in 1998 & include:

Adv. Dip. Counselling & Groupwork Skills - 1998, RSA Level 5
Adv. Dip. In Person Centred Counselling - 1999; Level 6
Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision - 2001; KRCS Level 7
Adv. Dip. In Counselling Supervision (updated) - 2014, KRCS: NCS Level 7

I particularly enjoy supervision as over the years this has been a collaborative learning experience.

Interestingly as an autodidactic and able to think outside of the box has led to me being awarded a number of fellowships.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Please speak to me about further information regarding Accessibility. Also learning disability, autism...
