I qualified as an integrative supervisor from The Minster Centre in 2022.
As a supervisor, I create a non-judgemental space for my supervisees so they feel safe to explore any issues with their client work. Safety in supervision is paramount so that supervisees do not feel the need to censor themselves to avoid criticism. This is a disservice to the supervisee and, ultimately, their clients.
I am a curious supervisor who likes to collaborate with my supervisees to understand what is really going on in the client work (including unconscious processes e.g. transference and counter-transference). Supervisees find this curiosity and exploration helps when feeling "stuck" with a client's process.
I have experience supervising student and professional counsellors from different modalities, working with diverse client groups (including young people), who are in private practice, or work for organisations. As well as offering private supervision, I supervise at Barnet Bereavement Service and Mindworks UK. I also supervise non-counsellors (e.g. teaching staff, voluntary sector, and family support services).
I offer individual and group supervision.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
