Supervision details

I am currently completing a UKCP accredited postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Supervision at the Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Institute. I’m therefore offering 6 initial lower cost supervision sessions (60 min per session, individually negotiated) prior to my usual fee of £65 per supervision hour (60 mins). 

I've been teaching and training in the university sector since 2004, and have held a postgraduate teaching qualification for university level (PGCHE) for 10 years. In addition, I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and have been an academic supervisor at university levels in psychology since 2009 and psychotherapy since 2021. I therefore have a strong appreciation of teaching and learning theory and a lot of experience working with a variety of students at both undergraduate and postgraduate including PhD. 

The reason I decided to undertake this Diploma was because I want to continue my integrative journey specifically as a UKCP reg. clinical supervisor. I’m integrational at heart and wanted to spend time reflecting and weaving together my extensive teaching and academic supervison experience with contemporary clinical supervision theory for psychotherapists, counsellors, and other allied professionals such as medical doctors. 

I’d describe myself as a very collaborative and relational person dedicated to the development of knowledge and reflection, and have an interest in co-creative processes, both conscious and unconscious processes in learning contexts, and how psychological processes between therapist and client might enter the supervision space.  I’m especially interested in working with therapists who work with men, working with sexual diversity - especially LGB clients, and with therapists who are are working with multiple marginalised identities and cultural diversity. I’m interested in power and unconscious bias and would consider whiteness and heteronormativity as a critical topic in therapeutic work as well as in supervision.

Please also read my therapist profile for more details of clinical experience which obviously forms part of my all-round working identity.

Please contact me for more information if you feel we could work well together. 

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
