Supervision details

I offer clinical supervision to counsellors, currently online. I recently completed the University of Derby Clinical Supervision PGDip. I have completed over 900 counselling hours in a variety of settings and am an accredited member of the BACP. I completed my MSc in Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy at Keele University in 2015. This forms the foundation of my practice, but I increasingly see myself as integrative/pluralistic, with the emphasis on the relationship between client and counsellor. My model of supervision puts the supervisory relationship - rather than any particular orientation or process - in the centre of supervision. Before retraining as a counsellor I was a teacher and school leader, and have recently set up Teaching with Heart, an organisation which provides reflective practice and counselling to teachers in their schools. I worked as a counsellor in a hospice for three years, and was also actively involved in training and mentoring volunteer and placement counsellors. I have a growing interest in group work and have co-led a Balint group for teachers in the Tavistock Centre in London. I am passionate about the development of knowledge and skills within counselling, and have had an article published in Therapy Today (September 2016) about the importance of counsellors taking active steps to create their own knowledge. I see supervision as a key component of this process. Prices I charge £50 per hour of supervision, but am happy to discuss a lower rate if you will struggle to pay this.

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.
