Supervision details

I offer Psychodynamic and Integrative supervision, individually and in small groups, to therapists working face to face, online and over the telephone.

For face to face appointments I am based in Bakewell and Whaley Bridge.

I am an experienced counsellor with several years’ experience in private practice working with a variety of presentations. I currently work with adults, couples, groups and offer walk and talk outdoor therapy.

I have experience of working within organisations including working with victims of domestic abuse. I currently work with Blythe House Hospicecare counselling adults and young people experiencing bereavement, treatment for cancer and those in end-of-life care.

I can offer a supportive and nurturing space for counsellors to explore and reflect on their work, without judgment. 

Supervision sessions with me are a collaborative and creative experience, incorporating educative elements where appropriate or desired.  

I am a lecturer in counselling for the University of Derby on their Diploma courses. 

In addition, I can support trainee counsellors as they take their first steps with clients to develop their skills and confidence in relation to their client work. 

I hold a Level 6 Advanced Certificate In Clinical Supervision – Including Online and Telephone Work.

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.
