Supervision details

My supervision Approach The quality of the relationship between the supervisee and supervisor is crucial as it acts as the foundation for the learning and development of the supervisee, and in turn the basis of the quality of the support for the client.  This is a multidimensional and complex task where I seek to find a balance between supporting supervisees, teaching them new skills and monitoring their interactions between clients. My supervision approach is humanistic and integrative.  I hope to help supervisees feel safe and supported enough to reflect honestly on their support of clients.  I am influenced by the models of Hawkins & Shohet (2006) and Page & Wosket (1994), in which there is a focus on the supervisory relationship, as well as providing a reflective space for the supervisee to develop. I welcome supervisees with different therapeutic perspectives from my own. ExperienceI am a Registered Counselling Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).  I am also a registered member (MBACP) with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).  I have completed the BPS approved training in clinical supervision that provides eligibility to join the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS). Supervision sessions are offered via Microsoft Teams.   Discounted rates are available for trainees, so please do ask.

HCPC
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

BACP
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.
