My approachAs a supervisor I draw on my person-centred philosophy to create a safe, supportive learning environment in which supervisees can reflect freely and openly on their client work, whilst also attending to their own growth and development. I offer a space where unconscious processes in the therapeutic relationship and the transpersonal dimension of the work can be explored, as well as issues of diversity, professional boundaries and ethics. I offer one to one supervision in my private practice, in person or online. I also supervise groups, working with both trainee and qualified counsellors from different modalities. I have particular experience of supervising trainee and newly qualified therapists, supporting them in using counselling theory to understand and deepen the therapeutic process and in exploring and developing their own unique therapeutic practice. My qualifications and experienceI hold a Certificate in Integrative Supervision from Re-Vision (Nov 2020). I am an approved supervisor for Metanoia’s Person-Centred department and supervise on Re-vision’s Integrative Counselling training. I have supervised and trained counsellors working with survivors of sexual abuse in Mumbai, India, since March 2020. I supervised groups at The Awareness Centre from December 2020 to July 2021, supporting counsellors working short term within the NHS and longer term in the low cost counselling service. I see individual supervisees in my private practice. Fees and cancellation policy: I charge £50 for a 50 minute supervision session and offer concessions to trainee counsellors and people on a low income.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
