Supervision details

As a supervisor I offer a safe space for reflection on practice, where we can work together with respect and congruity for the client and your sense of self. Using the BACP Ethical Framework and the BACP Supervision Competency Framework as the foundation for ethical practice.

Our initial session will focus on establishing the supervisory contract to detail how we will work together to create an active learning and development space for us to develop as practitioners.

I offer a facilitative approach to supervision with experience of delivering the Seven-Eyed supervision model and the Cyclical model. I am open to using other models of supervision to suit the supervisory alliance. I am a person-centred counsellor, offering my experience of working with adults in private practice, primary care, mental health service, bereavement care and cancer care.  

I am experienced in working with Young People with issues around their mental health and wellbeing. I have worked as a school counsellor in secondary education using this experience  to support young people in my private practice.

Offering young people other tools  e.g., mindfulness, artwork, Drawing and Talking therapy & play therapy to engage with their emotions.

I have experience supervising trainee and qualified counsellors on a 121 basis over Zoom. I also have experience of participating in face-to-face peer group supervision.  I offer face to face supervision from our office in Dunfermline as well as online supervision via Zoom, WhatsApp, and telephone.

I hold the COSCA Diploma in Counselling Supervision

Children Matter Certificate- Open College Network

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.

PVG Scheme

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.
