Supervision details

I work pre-dominantly as an integrative Person-Centred counsellor and supervisor and draw on my training in, and knowledge of Transactional Analysis, CBT and Gestalt therapy in my work with clients and supervisees.  I utilise these modalities along with creative resources as part of my integrative approach. Working in this way helps me to tailor sessions to meet the unique needs of individual clients, enabling me to work intuitively and flexibly with them whilst remaining true to my person-centred core.

I have a passion for working with people of all ages.  My background spans over twenty years of working with children, young people and their families in various educational and therapeutic roles which includes home-based settings, schools and Children's services. I am a trained group facilitator and have delivered a variety of training to parents and carers.  Alongside my private practice, I am also currently working as a school counsellor with young people aged 11-18 years.

I believe supervision is a place for supervisees to build a trusting and secure relationship, where we can work collaboratively together within the boundaries and guidance of the BACP ethical framework. I see supervision as an opportunity for learning, growth and self-development.  A place that provides supervisees with the space to reflect, challenge and to be challenged; and the opportunity to explore your client work to help your development in your future practice; to be able to acknowledge the things that have gone well and for you to feel comfortable enough to talk about the things you may be left holding without fear of judgement.

I gained my certificate in supervision from the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, London. I offer concessionary rates for students.  

All enquiries are welcome and I offer a free introductory phone call or 30 minute online session to help you decide if I am the right supervisor for you.

My contact details are below.  Please feel free to get in touch.

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.
