Supervision details

I have over 7 years of experience as a clinical supervisor and have worked with trainees, newly qualified counsellors through to very experienced practitioners. I also have experience of supporting therapists through their accreditation process.

I provide individual supervision to counselling practitioners from all disciplines and I am very happy for you to contact me to have a discussion about your supervision requirements. I have experience as a supervisor with counsellors from different modalities and have a good working knowledge of the many theoretical approaches. I have extensive counselling experience myself and I am used to working with clients who have experienced traumatic, life-changing and existentially challenging life events and experiences. I believe that supervision is a collaborative process and I offer a supportive and non-judgemental space for supervisees to continue to develop self-awareness, to explore any professional, developmental, personal and ethical issues that are relevant to practice, and provide a robust learning environment to consider theory and research, thereby helping to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your clients.

I also have experience of working with other professionals in supervision; Mental Health Practitioners, Teachers, Victim Support, for example, who might also need support and guidance with emotional aspects of their work whilst working with individuals experiencing trauma.

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.
