Supervision details

The foundation of my supervision practice is simple: I'm going to offer you space to explore whatever you need to develop your practice and support you as a practitioner. That might be examining elements of client work, exploring what themes are arising for you, ethical decision making as well as looking at your personal and/or practice development and meeting your professional needs.  

I’m a person centred therapist but welcome working with others from different therapeutic perspectives. I can bring challenge and a space to explore whatever way that you work. I aim to provide a space which is collaborative, inquistitive, reflective and restorative 

The experience that I bring with me is varied – including private practice, third sector and charity work. I’ve also many years experience of being self employed, both in private work and in my previous career and am happy to provide support in marketing and developing your private practice whether thats from the initial stages of setting up or to revitalise an existing business.

My passion is for taking therapy outside and I’ve worked with clients outdoors for a number of years, offering outdoor therapy / ecotherapy / walk and talk. 

I’m based in Shropshire and have access to a private woodland space for supervision. Alternatively we can work online, using various platforms or meet in rooms in either Shrewsbury or Telford.

As well as traditional monthly or fortnightly sessions I’m happy to work on a more infrequent basis or even ad-hoc or one-off sessions. For example if you’re looking to examine elements around outdoor therapy or need a session whilst your regular supervisor is away just get in touch.

Sessions are from £70 an hour.

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.

Key details

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.

If you've questions about accessibility please do get in touch! I have various spots to work from, including those with paths suitable for wheelchairs / mobility aids and would like to help remove any barriers to accessing outdoor therapy where possible
