Supervision details

As a qualified clinical supervisor I offer a confidential non-judgmental space for counsellors to explore their practice safely.  A safe space where you can reflect on your work with clients develop your learning and professional practice. This is achieved by working together collaboratively and developing our professional relationship, a relationship that will be built on equality.  We will use the BACP Ethical Framework and the BACP Supervision Competency Framework as the foundation for our ethical practice I have over 6 years of experience of working as a counsellor in schools and have a back ground in education as well as counselling.  I am experience in working with Young People in both the primary and secondary setting and alongside my Person Centred training I use Mindfulness,  Drawing and Talking Therapy,  Walk and Talk Session, play therapy and art work to help support the young people in their journey through counselling. I have years of experience in both management teaching and currently lecture at Fife College delivering the HNC & HND in Counselling. I have a over 10 years counselling experience of working with Trauma  and experience of working with Adult Survivors of Abuse within a Charity organisation and also run a private practice. I have experience supervising qualified counsellors on a 1-2-1 basis in person and online have experience of supporting face-to-face group peer supervision. Currently I am offering in person or online supervision via Zoom or Teams My fees are £52.50 per hour for qualified counsellors and £45 for student counsellors.

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

PVG Scheme

In Scotland, criminal records checks are carried out by Disclosure Scotland. Professionals working with children or vulnerable adults must join the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme. You can learn more at mygov.scot , or contact this professional directly.

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.
