Supervision details

As part of my integrative approach to supervision I have developed the Infinity Model for Supervision. In relation to supervision, infinity represents the continuous necessity for engaging with supervision and the never-ending path of learning and growth for all involved.  The Infinity Model has eight elements of focus.  1. Client, 2. Supervisee, 3. Supervisor, 4. Wellbeing, 5. Relationship, 6. World, 7. Work Context, 8 Supervision Context. These elements intersect and interact with one another, remaining in constant motion and requiring awareness. As part of the supervision process any element can be expanded for further exploration.

I can offer individual or small group supervision to qualified therapists and trainees including integrative practitioners and those from different therapeutic modalities. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Fees: £50 for 1hr or £75 for 90minutes

I have a Level 6 Diploma in Online Therapeutic Counselling Supervision.

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.
