I offer online and face to face supervision and my aim is not only to help you manage your case load but explore in depth your counselling relationships and how you can best improve practice. I currently work for the University of East London providing weekly group supervision to level 7 students. This has then led to me to expand my private supervision. I also offer group supervision to West Kent housing association. I have been a qualified group worker for many years and love to use my skills in this way. I have been in private practice myself for six years and wrote the very successful book 'How to set up a successful counselling practice.' I am passionate about private practice and so fully understand the peeks and pits of working for yourself. I also know at times it can feel quite lonely and thats why it is so important to have a clinical supervisor who appreciates this and can support you closely. Dependant on where you are in your counselling career I will most likely ajust my model to suit you. When people are quite new it may be that they need a slightly more directive approach compared to a long standing counsellor which may need less direction and a more exploratory way of working together. This is something we would discuss at the start of our journey together. If you are interested and feel we may be a good fit please do not hesitate to contact me for a chat.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
