Supervision details

I am a qualified Supervisor for counselling professionals and students. I set up my own private practise in 2017 having completed my counselling diploma through ABC awarding body to complement my Psychology degree. Since then I have specialised in living with life limiting illness, cancer support, bereavement, anxiety and autism within my counselling work. In 2019 I joined the counselling arm of a local business hub on a voluntary basis to implement policy, procedures, administration, assesment etc to establish an affordable counselling oppertunity for our local area residents. This has been an amazing asset to the area during covid 19 times and subsequently, following my training has led me to gaining experience of group and individual supervsion for counselling students who are on placement with us.  I offer a supportive, safe, nurturing and approachable way of working together firmly based within the coaching and mentoring model.  My work prior to counselling was within a HR environment and at times draw upon many of the structured and focused ways of working involved in personal development to enhance your career or studies. My knowledge of autism has enabled me to provide an inclusive and supportive individual approach to working together.  If you would like to know any more about me and my way of working please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.
