Supervision details

I trained at the Consultancy, Supervision, Research and Training (CSTD) using Robin Shoet and Peter Hawkins Seven Eyed Process Model of Counselling Supervision. I work within an Integrative and Systemic framework.  I see supervision as an essential part of the counselling process. I provide a safe and collaborative environment; encouraging a reflective process of both the counselling and supervisory relationships. I see my role as supporting you to grow in your work.  I feel the below quote from Peter Hawkins and Robin Shoets book Supervision in the Helping Professions Chapter 1 encompasses the role of the supervisor which I aim and hope to provide within the supervisory relationship. "The supervisors role is not just to reassure the worker, but to allow the emotional disturbance to be felt within the safer setting of the supervisory relationship, where it can be survived, reflected upon and learnt from". I have supervised trainee counsellors at Surrey University, and both qualified and trainee counsellors in my private practice. I charge £50 for a sixty minute supervision session, and negotiated rates for trainee counsellors.  I can also offer longer supervision sessions if preferred.

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.
