I am a qualified supervisor offering supervision face to face, online via live video link or via the telephone. As a supervisor I seek to build a strong working alliance where trust can be established to allow for a safe harbor for you as a therapist to come and share how things are “really” going in relation to your therapeutic work. I endeavor to offer an effective supervisory relationship which fosters a non-judgmental approach, offering both support and appropriate challenge. I aim to provide you with my warmth and respect for you as a fellow therapist, my curiosity for your experiences and process with your clients and how this affects you. My commitment is to be present where you are, to be an active agent in our supervisory relationship and to draw on my facilitative skills, knowledge and experience to provide an exploratory and educative supervisory relationship which promotes your professional growth and development. I have experience of supervising Person-Centred, Integrative and CBT Therapists and I am open to working with any modality. I currently work with both trainee and fully qualified counsellors. I hold accreditation status as a counsellor with the BACP adhering to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and as a qualified supervisor I also adhere to and draw on the BACP’s Supervision Competence Framework. I am qualified as a Online and Telephone Counsellor and to work with adults, children and young people. I have been practicing for 10 years with clients working in a range of settings – GP Practice Private Practice EAP Providers Community Based Charity Young Person's Project Domestic Abuse Service School Counselling Service Addictions Service
The fee is £45 per 1 hour of supervision and discounted rates are available for students or those affected by low income. If you would like to discuss the prospect of working with me as your supervisor then please contact me to arrange a free, non obligation initial chat to discuss your needs and to get a sense whether I might be a good fit for you as a supervisor.
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 membership
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).
