Supervision details

I am a BACP Accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with over 2,500 hours of client work. I work in private practice with individuals and with the NHS. I have also worked with the University of Aberdeen, various EAP companies and Charities. I am a qualified Supervisor with a COSCA Diploma in Counselling Supervision. I have had several and varying experiences of being supervised which has shaped and influenced how I see and wish to develop my practice. 

I offer supervision for students, newly trained and experienced counsellors and bring myself as fully as I can into our supervisory relationship. My hope is that each supervisee is enabled to do likewise. My theoretical approach is integrative. My goal is to offer you a safe, confidential space where difficult client issues can be explored in a collaborative way. I want you to feel supported and challenged whilst building resilience in your clinical work. It is important that our relationship is built on honesty and trust. I also want to hear about what you are doing well.

Please note that I offer supervision for counsellors who work with individual adults age 18+ only.  I am not able to offer supervision for couples or children’s work.

I am working online and I offer an hour initial meeting (no charge) via zoom, to establish if we will be a good supervisor/supervisee fit. 

Should you wish to go ahead then my fee is £55 per hour or £80 for an hour and a half.

Please get in touch so we can discuss your requirements. I look forward to hearing from you.

For your information I am based in Aberdeenshire, near Aberdeen.

COSCA
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSCA)

COSCA is the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland, and seeks to advance all forms of counselling and psychotherapy and the use of counselling skills by promoting best practice and through the delivery of a range of sustainable services. COSCA Counsellor Accreditation is a pathway to entry onto the UKRC.

It is a requirement of all individual and organisational members of COSCA to abide by its Statement of Ethics and Code of Practice and be accountable to the Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
