Supervision details

I can offer you an open, accepting and safe space to discuss your work and development and understand the role supervision plays in well-being, decreased burnout and job satisfaction.

I have been in the field of mental health for 12 years, starting in NHS mental health services followed by psychotherapy training and have been a practising psychotherapist for the past 11 years with experience in both private practice and organisations. My foundation in both therapy and supervision is in the phenomenological, what is happening between myself and my client/supervisee.

I trained at the Centre for Supervision Training and Development in the 7-eyed model of supervision (Hawkins and Shohet) which is a process model that focuses on the interplay between therapist, client and supervisor to help the supervisee understand the context of each.

I can offer you a safe space to discuss your work and what you are bringing to your work, both professionally and personally. I work in the belief that therapy is a collaborative process and that I do not know best. My supervisees have experience and knowledge that I do not and I am guided by Derrida's writings on the importance of "aporia", the state of not knowing and puzzlement of ideas. In this way it is not about knowing our clients, but about being open to the many possibilities they may be rather than the one they may present (or the one we have formed of them). I am happy to arrange a 15 minute telephone call to discuss how we might work together and hope to hear from you soon.

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.
