I'm a BACP-approved Supervisor currently completing a UKCP-accredited Diploma in Supervision, and I provide low-cost supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors and therapists, either in East London, or online, at the rate of £40 per hour. On completion of the Diploma, I will be placed on the UKCP Register of Accredited Supervisors.

The Diploma, entitled 'Supervision with Soul,' is run by Re-Vision, which is accredited by both the BACP and the UKCP. Re-Vision is a counselling and psychotherapy training centre with a transpersonal and integrative perspective. Its core values are care, integrity and meaning. To bring these values into the essential relationship between myself and my supervisees is at the heart of my supervision practice, as it is in my work as a therapist.

The Diploma covers areas such as how to build a transparent and respectful basis for the supervisory relationship; synchronicity and parallel process; field theory; cross-cultural dynamics and working with difference and diversity; how to to use power and authority wisely in supervision; bringing an understanding of ethical principles to the practice of supervision; and how to find the creative edge in supervision.

I see supervision as a reflective arena in which to explore the meta-level of client work as well as its minutia, and the interaction between these two. It’s an expanse where  powerful feelings or events that may belong with the therapist, with the client, or in the co-created space, can be expressed and debriefed. In supervision, a unique and mutual learning relationship can develop, providing an opportunity for professional and personal growth. It safeguards client and therapist wellbeing and enhances the effectiveness of therapeutic practice. Both psychotherapy and supervision enable people to grow and evolve.

As an Integrative therapist, I'm trained in a range of modalities, and so I'm able to work with supervisees from a range of orientations. I'm informed by humanistic, psychodynamic, existential, cognitive-behavioural, systemic and transpersonal theories. I believe these different models simply offer different lenses to view the core therapeutic encounter through. For me, embodied experience is a key resource, as access to feeling and transformation come through the body, and not outside or above it. This resource finds its expression relationally and creatively, through breath, sound, movement, words, images, art, archetype and intuition. I hope to offer supervision that honours the life of the soul.

An initial phone call may be helpful in the first instance. No obligation is attached to a call or a meeting. It's a chance to see if we're suited to work together.

Accessibility

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.
