Supervision details

Clinical supervision is all about providing a safe, confidential and trusting environment for you to reflect on, discuss and evaluate your work - both in a professional and personal capacity. Clinical supervision fulfils three main functions; gatekeeping (ensuring client safety), supporting supervisees’ professional competency, and enhancing client treatment outcomes. Supervision can be used by supervises to reflect on all aspects of their clinical work. Supervision can support professional development and growth by enabling an environment which encourages self-reflection. Reflection facilitates the opportunity to review personal practice, discuss cases in depth, and identify any training and development needs which can support quality improvement and ensure increased levels of accountability. When working as a therapist, we have a duty of care for our clients, and we work with people who have complex, challenging and sometimes very intense needs. Supervision enables conversations in a trusting, confidential environment to explore our emotional and personal reactions to our work. More than this, it allows us to reflect on and challenge our practice as a therapist through receiving feedback that is entirely separate to managerial considerations. As a result, supervision has been associated with higher levels of job satisfaction and effectiveness at work. My obligation to you As your supervisor, I will adopt a supportive and facilitative approach to our conversations. I will act as an ethical role model concerning managing boundaries within your work. I realise that balancing this duty of care with the ethical responsibility of confidentiality, to preserve trust and a supervisory alliance with my supervisees, requires careful navigation. I therefore continuously reflexively examine myself as supervisor to ensure I am always working on my own professional development. I examine my practice, my purpose, identity, ethics, values and my aims to ensure all my supervisees are receiving top quality supervision in each session with me. Vision statement I offer a practice-focused, professional service to all my supervisees. I aim to present a clear image of clinical supervision to supervisees, clients and the general public by competently, transparently and empathically offering integrated support to supervisees. I intend to ensure the highest quality of professional and ethical practice, education and continuous professional development. I am passionate about upholding integrity and meaning-making in my relationships with my supervisees while also offering rigorous supervisory skills that will genuinely help to challenge and support development. This vision requires an enhanced self-awareness, resolution of core issues, the will to critically reflect on practice, and accountable decision-making – all of which I aim to deliver on. Mission statement I aim to provide a safe, confidential and professional supervisory relationship that empowers both new and experienced counselling and psychotherapy supervisees to achieve personal excellence.  I hope to promote my supervisees’ social, emotional and psychological well being through my sessions to enable them to achieve increased job satisfaction. I fully embrace and advocate cultural difference and welcome all questions, including those around sexuality and gender; developing and maintaining the supervisory alliance, and recognising the significance of counsellors’ and psychotherapists’ professional development within organisations and in private practice (as guided by BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (2018), as fundamental to quality client care). Statement of intent I have completed the University of Derby’s Level 7 Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Supervision, and have current indemnity insurance, and personal supervision. I offer one-to-one and group supervision and work with experienced therapists and trainee practitioners. I understand the requirements of data protection law regarding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legal principles and practice notes for the counselling professions. My supervision training and approach is integrative and relational and focused on work with adults. The intention is to guarantee supervises' fitness to practice (competence), safeguard professional standards, develop professional expertise once qualified or fitness for award if training, promote high-quality care and support supervises to reflect on their practice.  As you grow in confidence, discussions will focus on issues such as the transferential process, upholding the gatekeeping role and maintaining professional standards. I can also help with applications for accreditation or membership to professional bodies.  Please feel free to call me today to discuss your supervision needs. 60 minutes Supervision - £60 90 minutes Supervision - £75

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.
