Supervision details

I offer supervision that is warm, reflective and supportive to trainees and qualified therapists both In-person and Online.

I am an experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a qualified Clinical Supervisor. I have more than 13 years experience working in a variety of roles; I have worked in the NHS in Primary Care and IAPT,  as a parent counsellor in a community setting, as well as private practice offering time limited and open ended counselling. I work with clients with a broad range of presentations including trauma, depression, anxiety and relationship issues and place a strong emphasis on the importance of the therapeutic relationship in my way of working.

I aim to provide therapists with a reflective and containing space to bring all aspects of their clinical practice in order to work as effectively, safely and ethically as possible with clients. I envisage my supervisory role as holding a space in which you, the therapist, can feel supported, develop and ultimately flourish as a practitioner.  I aim to gently challenge you and enable you to be reflective and curious about your practice and the impact of your work on you and your clients. As with my client work I believe it is the relationship which enables this to happen.

I offer supervision to trainee and qualified therapists who work with adults and also to people working in mental health or social care roles where a reflective and supportive space is needed. I work to the BACP Ethical Framework.

Please contact me via email to arrange an initial session to discuss your supervisory needs and how I could support your work. In this initial meeting we can discuss and agree a mutual working agreement to help create a safe and trusting learning environment which reflects your individual needs.

My fees are £65 per hour of supervision (£97.50 for an hour and a half) (and £70 an hour for organisations). I can offer supervision face to face or online via Zoom or a combination of the two.

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.
