I see supervision as an opportunity for you to take a step back and together reflect on your client relationships. A place to work through ethical dilemmas or anything you might be finding challenging or demanding and to celebrate progression. My aim is to provide a safe, compassionate, collaborative, and supportive environment which offers exploration and supportive challenge. I will work hard to honour your unique style, wellbeing, growth and professional development whilst keeping your clients at the very heart of our work together. I use the Seven-Eyed model of supervision developed by Peter Hawkins to underpin my supervision practice. I work in a supervisee centred way. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and work within their Ethical Framework and Professional Conduct Procedure. Qualifications & Experience Some of my key qualifications are: BSc (Hons) in Person Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy (University of Derby) Foundation Degree in Person Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy (University of Derby) PG Cert in Clinical Supervision (University of Derby) Certificate in Couples and Relationship Counselling Psychotherapy training with Nick Duffel working with Boarding School Survivors Certificate in Online Counselling (Webcam and Phone)
I regularly undertake additional CPD training to keep my knowledge and skills up to date. I work solely in private practice, which I have been running for 3 years. I specialise in working with people who have experienced bereavement, burnout or trauma and abuse, including Boarding School survivors. I have chosen to focus my own therapy work with adults and couples but I have experience of working with children and young people (aged 4+).
I am committed to offering supervision in an anti-discriminatory way. I work with people of all genders, ages, abilities / disabilities, cultures, neurodiversity, ethnicity, sexes, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, class, and socio-economic groups.
Location Our work can take place either in my fully accessible, brightly lit, spacious, comfortable, and calm therapy room near Chorley, Lancashire or via Zoom.

The first session I offer a free initial 30 minute session to give us both the time and space to get to know each other a little, explore your hopes and fears for supervision and to see if we would be a good fit together. During this first session we can also pay attention to confidentiality and boundaries. We will look at your individual needs, style of working and the relationships you hold with your clients, as well as the setting of your practice. We can meet with online or in person.

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.
