Hi, I am a qualified individual and group supervisor. I Supervise groups and individuals using an Integrative perspective. I also supervise other professionals working in pastoral/caring type roles.My main counselling training is Psychodynamic, however I have completed extensive post qualification training in Transactional Analysis and my entry level qualification into the counselling profession was Person Centred. I also have a Psychology degree too. I therefore tend to counsel and supervise using an Integrative approach – recognising that individuals I work with need individual ways of working with them.I draw on elements from all my trainings both formal and informal, as well as from my experience and through what I have learnt through my own supervision and counselling too. I instinctively tend to work quite creatively with supervisees – using metaphors, images, play on words and actual physical creative materials too. I work in a collaborative way – I am not the expert on you or your clients, you are, and your clients are the experts on themselves. As such, I work in a way as being an extra pair of ‘eyes’ (ears) overseeing you and your work. I will try to see the wider picture of what you might be presenting in a Supervision session as well thinking about the client, and being aware of the dynamics and processes that might be occurring. I aim to be an inquisitive Supervisor working with you, to ensure your clients are being supported in the most appropriate way. I have a few concession supervision rates for counsellors in training. Please feel free to contact me for an informal chat to see if I match your requirements.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
