Supervision details

I have been providing clinical supervision for counsellors and therapists in Stockton on Tees for a number of years.  My aim is to provide a safe and supportive environment where you can review and examine your practice and your relationships with clients.  My consultancy is based in Stockton on Tees with supervisees coming from around the local area.  I believe that the most effective, creative and safest therapy comes from your ability to constantly challenge your own perceptions and feelings as they arise in the therapeutic relationship.  Supervision should be a positive and creative experience that enables you to review your work in an honest and respectful way.  My practice is influenced by person-centred theory, but also includes my experience as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.  


I offer supervision to a wide variety of professionals, including;

  • University Students
  • Counsellors working with both adults and young people
  • Therapists in private practice
  • Therapists working in lots of different companies
  • Local Authority workers 
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.

Key details

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.
