Supervision details

I am a psychodynamically trained counsellor / psychotherapist and I have a Diploma in Supervision. I have been supervising counsellors from various modalities and with all supervises we will discuss and agree how we will work so in order to adapt my supervision style to suit the supervise.

My philosophy as a supervisor is to engage passionately with supervises by being emotionally and psychologically present and to provide a learning and containing environment to facilitate a relationship which is creative, exploratory, engaging and to help build bridges between theory and practice.

I use the Seven-Eyed supervision model by Shohet & Hawkins because as a psychodynamic therapist I feel the model is heavily focused on the psychoanalytic understanding of unconscious processes and the relational nature looks closely at what's happening in the supervisory relationship and the therapeutic relationship, as well as the wider systemic contexts of the client, supervise and supervisor.

My Fees are £60 for 50-minute sessions and £100 for 90-minute sessions. I also offer group supervision.

Please contact me to discuss your supervision 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.
