Supervision details

I am a fully qualified supervision practitioner, with a PG certificate in the 7 eyed model of supervision, which is a psychodynamic approach, although my counselling background is person-centred. I aim to help my supervisees feel confident and competent in their role as a counsellor. I offer a supportive and quiet environment. We will work together to help you acknowledge your strengths and to identify areas of improvement.  You will be guided to look at your counselling practice in an objective way to analyse for yourself what the main concerns of your clients' are. You will be supported to look at your practice from different perspectives in order to get a clear picture of the way in which you are working. Supervision is a must for practicing counsellors and together we can form a plan of how you want to go forward as a counsellor and identify your ideas to further your career in counselling. The 7 eyed model looks at the client work, the relationship of the supervisee and client, the transference and counter transference, the supervisee and supervisor relationship and the environment and all other aspects of the work. We will build a supportive and balanced relationship whereby trust is paramount. You will be encouraged to give me feedback and I will provide you with the emotional nourishment to satisfy your needs as a counsellor. You may experience anxiety as a counsellor and need support to overcome this fear. If this is you, feel welcome to contact me to discuss the work we can embark on together. You will find me approachable and sensitive to your needs. I will help you understand your role as a counsellor from a deeper level, by exploring the process you are encountering with your client and the parallel process you are experiencing. I hope you will find supervision with me enlightening and rewarding, sustaining of your practice and feel confident and competent within your position. £ 55 per 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.
