Supervision details

The clinical supervision I offer supports those who work in the helping professions and my experience includes working with counsellors, student counsellors, support workers, teaching staff and nursing staff, both privately and within an organisational setting.  Finding the right supervisor can be a daunting process I therefore offer a free, no-obligation, initial session to ensure the establishment of an effective working alliance. As a supervisor, my goals are to facilitate a supervisee’s process of exploration and reflection on their work and therapeutic relationships, to aid the development of their own ‘internal supervisor’ and to also support supervisees in taking care of their own well-being, as well as that of their clients. I have completed supervision training with CSTD Bath (Centre for Supervision, Training and Development) and have obtained a Diploma Award. CSTD Bath is endorsed by The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy as a 'Recognised Supervisor Training' and meets all UKCP's requirements for Supervision Training. The supervision model that informs my practice is the 'Seven Eyed' model, a relational process model developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet, and is so named as there are seven main aspects of focus. These aspects ensure that the many varied complexities that may present when working with supervisees' are taken into account, thus providing a robust and secure base for the work. I offer supervision groups for counsellors and student counsellors which are three hours in duration, with a maximum of four participants. This group structure fulfils both NCS and BACP ratio criteria for supervision to counselling practice hours.  To compliment my supervision practice and to support the work of my supervisees, should a pressing need arise, I also offer ad-hock telephone or Zoom supervision.  Fees are £50 per hour. Concessions are available for students and those working in the voluntary and charity sectors. The fee for writing student reports is £45.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
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.
