Supervision details

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor and have a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision from Leicester University. I practice the Shohet Seven Eyed Supervisor approach which includes thinking about the client, yourself, my reactions and the context both of the client and where you practice.I offer clinical supervision if you are a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist or counsellor/psychotherapist in training. I bring psychodynamic thinking to supervision with especial focus on attachment dynamics. I am experienced in supervising long and short term work, and all theoretical approaches. I work in a collaborative way, exploring your own approach and offering alternative hypothesis and ways of working where wanted. I have been supervising counsellors and psychotherapists for over 20 years in a variety of settings with supervisees from extremely diverse settings.I have worked in FE, HE, the NHS, in drug and alcohol agencies and with an extremely diverse client base including: teenagers; the elderly; victims of neglect and abuse; victims of violent crime; asylum seekers; victims of war; clients who are bereaved; with anxiety and depression; consultants in the NHS; senior academics; those seeking meaning and purpose in their lives.

Testimonials from previous supervisees: Tina was my supervisor for three years. During that time I was felt listened too and supported. I was positively challenged whilst also benefitting from Tina's vast knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend Tina as a supervisor and if locality was not an issue for me Tina would still be my supervisor. Angela Williams, Counsellor Tina was my supervisor during my training to become a counsellor, an exciting, but at the same time, vulnerable time. I felt very held and supported throughout.One of the most valuable things she helped me to develop was the crucial balance of warmth, empathy and self-discipline; how to fully enter in and then step back to examine my work. In addition, the accuracy and economy of her observations helped me get to the heart of my work quickly. Charlotte, Cardiff

I found that my experience of supervision with Tina was insightful and illuminating. I was gently challenged in a way that allowed me gain perspective on my opinion of self and my work. I felt that I grew in confidence and began to learn to trust in my own ability but also to develop my observer self.In supervision I felt safe to be able to talk about perceived weaknesses in my work . I found my experiences of supervision with Tina wholly positive. Thank you. Nicky, Cardiff

Tina was my supervisor for 3 years in this time she really helped me to develop my practice and in particular sensitivity and compassion for my clients comes to mind, she is robust, holding and gentle.  In particular she has a very strong grounding in psychodynamic theory which she integrates with other approaches.  Her knowledge and many years of experience in working means that she makes a very thorough and competent supervisor and I would always recommend her as an excellent supervisor. Gwen, Cardiff

Fees £75 per 50 minute session for weekly or fortnightly supervision.

I am happy to invoice employers where needed.

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.
