Supervision details

I offer supervision to other therapists, I have been working as an integrative trauma counsellor for 9 years both in private practice  and in charities. I have also worked in the voluntary sector for over 20 years.

My style is exploratory, reflective and within the ethical framework of BACP.

I consider the relationship between us to be a crucial part of our work together so encourage and foster feedback on this.

Apart from working with you where you are at as a therapist, I can support you specifically with:

  • Setting up in private practice​
  • Using body awareness to support your work
  • Inner child enquiry
  • Trauma informed working

I believe supervision should be a place to bring all of yourself, your strengths, concerns and ethical dilemmas. I offer a safe place to do this, whilst supporting you to be the best practioner possible.

I charge £65 per hour. To have a chat about how I can support you please contact me.

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.
