Supervision details

Qualification:  PG Cert in Supervision of the Helping Professions from the University of Salford. I have been in Private Practice since 2016 after having previously worked as a counsellor within the NHS, the Prison Service, and RELATE.  I currently provide supervision at 1point Bolton.  Being both a person-centred and systemic practitioner I am able to bring a different prospective to client work and personal reflection. If you are interested and would like meet for a 30 minute chat to discuss what you are looking for in a supervisor, then please feel free to contact me by either phone-call, text, or email. I charge £50 for an hour and £70 for an hour and a half, but I am happy to discuss a reduced rate for volunteers based on individual circumstances.   My Philosophy I believe that supervision should be a collaborative relationship between supervisor and supervisee that promotes a continually evolving practice which is achieved by agreed boundaries, an understanding of one another’s expectations, an appreciation of the supervisees’ development to date, and an understanding of how the supervisee wishes to continue their learning journey: all of which can be discussed and agreed in a contract.  I feel that there should be some recognition of any perceived power dynamics within our relationship and of the wider context within which I, as supervisor, and the supervisee might practice, and how this may influence the supervision.  I believe that supervision plays an important role in promoting and developing ethical practice: through my actions as supervisor, and my willingness to explore ethical dilemmas within the context of the supervisees’ moral stance, ethical framework, and the law.  The supervisee should feel supported in the relationship and trust that they can bring forth issues without fear of judgement thus enabling them to bring into awareness their inner-voice: providing an opportunity to reflect on their experience of connecting with someone else, explore the relationship, shed light on where emotional and life experiences cross boundaries, and challenge any barriers.      

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.
