Supervision details

I am a qualified Person Centred and Relational Supervisor. I am also IFS level 1 & 2 trained and integrate this way of working into supervision. I supervise individual Psychotherapists, Counsellors and other supporting professionals. I also supervise groups within organisations. I see supervision as a collaborative holding and supportive over seeing of your therapeutic and/or support work, helping you explore your work and dilemmas that arise within that, to gain insight and clarity about you, your client and what emerges between you. Also what emerges between us can be useful information, all of which can help you to be an effective therapist for your clients. I also see mentoring and exploring your current practice, career path, growing edges and opportunities as a part of supervision. I enjoy working creatively and include somatic experiencing and body sensing to give a voice to the unspoken words of both the clients within the work you present and both of us. I have 14 years experience working with trauma and PTSD, depression, anxiety, domestic abuse, childhood sexual abuse, sexual abuse and violence, sexuality, bereavement, shame, self esteem and many other presenting issues.  I offer supervision either face to face or online.  I charge £70 a session    

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.

Key details

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.

There are a few steps to access my room, however there is step free access around the front and I have a ramp for the threshold step. Currently due to COVID-19, I am only seeing clients online or over the telephone.
