Supervision details

I am particularly interested in supporting therapists who work with children and young people. I view supervision as a formal process that takes place within a collaborative relationship with the aim of enhancing the supervisee’s therapeutic competences and ensuring that their practice conforms to ethical and professional standards.  My aim is to create an optimal reflective environment relevant to the stage of a therapist’s career.  Given that I work creatively as a counsellor, I am happy to bring creative elements to my supervisory work. Whilst my counselling modality is primarily Humanistic (Person-Centred, Gestalt and TA), over my many years of counselling practice, my theoretical interests have evolved and as such my approach has developed into a more pluralistic style and this is reflected in my integrative supervisory work. I welcome enquiries from therapists seeking supervision whether for the first time or for a change of supervisor.

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.
