Supervision details

 I offer a supportive and stimulating supervision where counsellors and students can explore and reflect on themselves and their practice. Supervision should be a space to offload confidentially, a place where the supervisee is allowed to grow and be challenged. As a supervisor my aim is to help supervisees feel supported, enriched, resourced and restored. Key to this is developing their own reflective practice based on the key tenets of the BACP ethical framework.

I am mindful that each supervisee is at a distinct level of learning so it is of paramount importance that I utilise the working alliance and deliver an appropriate platform for supervisees to engage in the various stages of formative, normative and restorative themes to enhance their counselling practice and build confidence.

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.
