Supervision details

I have been a Clinical Supervisor of both Trainee and Qualified Counsellors since 2013. I have supervised experienced professionals facing significant challenges, and also supported the novice on the start of their counselling career in their personal and professional development. am able to provide both individual supervision and group supervision, on a fortnightly or monthly basis. As a supervisor I work to the BACP's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, and ensure that I receive regular supervision of my own work as a supervisor.

My Approach: As an integrative counsellor and clinical supervisor, drawing upon person centred values and integrating these with solution focussed, cognitive behavioural and gestalt models, I conduct supervision from a mainly humanistic approach. I believe the quality of the supervisory relationship is paramount in the process of assisting supervisees move forward. In my supervisory practice I currently draw upon a variety of supervision models, including Hawkins & Shohet's Seven Eyed Model Of Supervision, and Inskipp & Proctor's model focussing on the normative, formative and restorative functions of supervision.

Location of Supervision Rooms: My main private practice is located at the Custard Factory in Digbeth and I also use alternate rooms within Birmingham city centre. Fees: £60.00  per hour. £50.00 per hour for students.

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.

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.
