Supervision details

I worked as a supervisor in many different settings, currently working in private practice here in London. Before coming back to the UK, I had a practice in Argentina, and I also founded a therapy clinic in Cambodia. During this time I supervised teams of therapists from a very wide range of backgrounds. These were very vibrant working communities, which taught me a great deal about the multitude of ways to help others. I would describe my supervision style as a collaborative brain storming session. A place where we discuss together ideas, along with the use of creative techniques such as art or role play.

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.

In person

I've been supervising for about 15 years now. I'd say my main area of expertise is in cross cultural work having spent much of my career abroad.
