I am a qualified integrative supervisor, providing supportive supervision for both qualified and trainee counsellors. I specialise in providing formative and developmental supervision to new and trainee counsellors. As a former Clinical Team Leader at a busy community based counselling service, managing and providing clinical support to a team of 50+ counsellors, I developed the skills and knowledge to support counsellors at the beginning of their careers, helping them to become reflective, knowledgeable and grounded counsellors. Whatever stage you are at in your career, I'm committed to providing high quality supervision and I believe that good supervision has the following functions: Enabling you to present and review your work and to receive support, constructive feedback and guidance. Helping you develop knowledge, skills and competence by reflecting on how you are working. Identifying and monitoring professional learning and development needs, interests and goals and exploring how these could be met. Constructively discussing the resolution of any conflict that may arise between us (the supervisor and the supervisee) and/or other agencies involved. Providing space for more general reflection on the impact and experience of the work. Supporting your overall growth in confidence, competence, and creativity as a counselling practitioner.
If you are interested in being supervised by me, please feel free to get in touch.
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.
