Supervision details

I am an experienced Supervisor, and work primarily with the well known 7-eyed model of Supervision (Hawkins’ and McMahon), and also the Integrative Developmental Model (IDM – Stoltenberg & McNeill).  All of my supervision is done online.

I believe that the most important function in supervision is to achieve a balance of the formative, normative and restorative functions, so that the supervisee feels supported, reassured and re-energised, but also challenged when appropriate and encouraged to maintain professional ethics and to continuously develop their ongoing professionalism.

It is important that the supervisee feels their supervision sessions provide a positive experience.  My style is quite relaxed, and I always try to encourage supervisees to acknowledge what they are doing well, and to consider how their clients could be better supported in challenging situations.

Obviously, client welfare is of prime importance.  But it is also essential that the supervisee is okay!

I will help you remain within the boundaries of your ethical framework, to develop your therapeutic skills and clinical practice, and to provide positive ongoing support.

Please Get In Touch if you would like to explore establishing a supervisory relationship with me. I offer a free of charge initial appointment where we can discuss your requirements.

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 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.
