Supervision details

I have a Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision Including Online and Telephone Working.

I am a Psychology graduate and I became a therapeutic counsellor through CPCAB. I have completed varied additional relevant training and worked as an integrative and mainly person centred counsellor for over six years in my own practice with individuals, couples and families.

My approach within my own therapy practice is integrative using different modalities including CBT, psychodynamic, existential, solution focussed and CBT approaches, according to what the client's needs are, but it's base is mainly person-centred.

I believe in working together in supervision collaboratively and in a very human way, intentionally learning about and understanding your needs as a supervisee in a way that supports you in your client work and in your own development, resilience and wellbeing as a counsellor. I like people to feel comfortable and at ease and so I hope this comes across and we can work with mutual respect, openness, sensitivity, humility and also humour.  

Reframing or conceptualising in new ways, seeing things from alternative viewpoints and being gently challenged is part of supervision. But I also want to give support and encouragement for the feelings of vulnerability as a counsellor that we can experience for example when a client's issue resonates, or when you're not sure about something. You need to feel empowered in your supervision to discuss success or failures.

Again your own journey and development is as unique as your own way of working and supervision is the process through which you can safely reflect and explore your own interventions and relationships with clients, what you have learned and what you need to learn to develop your own therapy work further.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
