Regular clinical supervision is a requirement for registered members of most professional counselling bodies (such as the BACP, NCS or UKCP). Clinical supervision is regular scheduled time to review client work, to consider the client/counsellor relationship and to sustain good practice as safely and as ethically as possible. The supervisor and counsellor work together to ensure the client is kept at the heart of the work. It gives safe space to explore and navigate as best as possible any ethical issues that may arise for both client and counsellor. Part of the work may involve considering areas for personal and professional development, as well as to ensure skills and knowledge are kept up to date. Supervision also enables the counsellor to safely consider their own personal resources to sustain their work and their client load. How I Work: I am a qualified Integrative Clinical Supervisor. Using an Integrative supervision model enables us to have a thorough exploration during our work together. My model supports us to form a collaborative and congruent relationship, which I believe is vital as we review and explore your clients and work. I use the 7 Tasks of Supervision (Carroll) as a framework, and integrate 3 supervision models: the 7 Eyed Model (Hawkins & Shohet) , The Cyclical Model (Page & Wosket) and the Functional Model (Proctor). OCN Accredited Certificate in Counselling Supervision. CPCAB Level 6 Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Supervision. Fees: Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision is offered on a fortnightly or monthly basis and fees are £60 per 1 hour session, £80 per 1.5 hour session.
Group Supervision: I work with a local authority counselling service as a Group Supervisor. Please get in touch if you are interested in group supervision whether through an organisation, or if you would like to set up a group.

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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
