In my view psychotherapy clients almost always eventually reveal a failure of mothering in their infancy which has affected their relational lives thereafter. The psychotherapeutic alliance is an attempt to heal that wound by modelling a new style of relationship based on trust. This is to give a very fundamental profile of my thinking as a supervisor. In practical terms I see supervisees either weekly or bi-weekly, for 50 minute sessions. But I’m open to considering other suggestions. My fee per session is £70. Please do get in touch if you would like to come for an initial trial session. It is every bit as important to feel at home with your supervisor as with your therapist. I prefer to conduct sessions in person, although I am open to phone or Zoom when occasion demands.
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
