Supervision details

I believe that the primary purpose of supervision is to encourage your development as a reflective practitioner, and that this is best achieved within a supportive, egalitarian relationship, built on trust, honesty, openness and mutual respect.

With this in mind, I aim to create a container in which reactions, comments, challenges, feelings and two-way feedback can all be shared.


Using Peter Hawkins' CLEAR model as a structure, we'll begin each session with a simple five minute contract for what you hope to gain from the day’s work and what - if anything - you want our focus to be on.

As someone who considers themselves a skilled ‘noticing practitioner’, I place a great deal of importance on listening not just to the words used and their context, but also to my client’s own particular interpretation and meaning of them in order to gain insight into your experience.

Together we'll explore and clarify the issue on hand, and then work to gain insight for both you and your client. I will seek to reveal your potential blindspots and - if helpful - share any parallels I might notice or personal experience I believe might be instructive.

Having explored the issue, we will develop options and discuss a way forward for both you and your client.

We discuss how today's session has been, whether you feel your initial objective has been achieved and what we've agreed on, and then set a date for our next meeting.

Questions for you to ask me during your first session:
- What is your training and experience?
- What are your professional qualifications?
- Is your supervision model compatible with my working model?
- Are you a suitable supervisor for me at this time?
- Can you describe a typical session?
- What will happen if you realise you know one of my clients?
- Do you think we'll be a good match in terms of personalities?

You may also want to talk about or ask questions about aspects of my written contract - eg payment terms, cancellation policy - which I will provide via email before our first meeting.

Therapists & Counsellors: if your client group is under the age of 18, it is my belief that you will be best served by a Supervisor with experience in this area. As my own practice is with individuals 18+, I prefer to supervise practitioners who work with adults only.

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.
