Supervision details

Supervision offers a valuable opportunity for supervisees to reflect on their work, facilitating sustainability and resilience in their client work. 

I am an experienced therapist and supervisor and work with children, adolescents, adults and couples. I have worked within the private and third sector and have extensive knowledge of safeguarding. 

The supervision I provide is tailored to your specific stage of professional development, whether you are in training, newly qualified, established or experienced.

My priority will be your emotional well-being and I aim to create a supportive environment where you can openly discuss any feelings that arise from your work. By exploring these feelings we can work to reduce any negative impact on your well-being and gain a deeper understanding of your clients' experiences and relational dynamics, ultimately benefitting their progress. 

During our sessions, we may explore areas of risk, connect theory to practice, identify special areas of interest, or discuss any other aspects of your role that you believe are relevant to the development of your practice.

I firmly believe that counsellors and supervisors should not know all the answers, Instead, I see the supervisory relationship as an ongoing opportunity for mutual learning. I facilitate an open and honest ethos, where we can both celebrate achievements and address any challenges. 

To ensure effective practice I engage in regular supervision of client work and also seek supervision for my supervision. I consider these practices essential for maintaining professional effectiveness. 

If you have any questions please get in touch. 

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
