Supervision details

I have 11 years of experience as a supervisor in counselling psychology and psychotherapy/counselling. I specialise in supervising trainee counselling psychologists and trainee counsellors and have clinically supervised sussesfully a number of trainees to completion. I have been a trainer in counselling psychology and counselling for 11 years. I have trained with some of the best counselling trainers and clinical supervisors in the country and the world. I am offering telephone and online supervision with supervision from across the world. I have 10 years of online supervision even before the current COVID-19 pandemic. You will find my supervision a refreshingly supportive, unshakably nurturing and stimulating experience, which will help you reach your potential as a clinician. My experience as a Senior Academic, Strategic Leader, Trainer and Senior Consulting Clinician will all come together to offer a unique experience for you. Please contact me to discuss.

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.

PVG Scheme

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I offer sessions face to face in my beautiful, quiet, private consulting space in Central Edinburgh, over the phone or online. I also offer walking therapy within strict professional boundaries, if enclosed spaces present a challenge for you at present.
