I believe that at the heart of good, purposeful supervision is the relationship between the supervisor and supervisee. Through my years of counselling experience and work as a teacher of counselling, I recently undertook my diploma in supervision which enables me to offer supervisees the opportunity to explore their personal and professional awareness by providing a collaborative environment which fosters trust, respect, genuineness and warmth. In doing this supervisees feel valued and ready to explore the movement and development of their client work in a non-judgemental and affirming surrounding. I encourage supervisees to be creative within their supervision and to consider what they need from the supervisory relationship. As a member of the BACP I work within the boundaries and guidance of their ethical framework. I also have knowledge and experience of working with different professional ethical frameworks. Currently I am working with counsellors, psychotherapists and coaches. For an initial consultation or to discuss you supervision needs, please feel free to contact me. All enquiries welcome.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
