Supervision details

Alpngside years of experience in the counselling field, I have a Level 6 CPCAB Supervisory qualification and am able to offer supervision to Counsellors/Psychotherapists.  My original training was Person Centred however, I have since studied and practiced Couples Counselling, Expressive Therapies, Solution Focus Therapy, and CBT. I would describe myself as offering a Pluralistic style of therapy tailored to my client's needs. I have a Level 5 NVQ in Management and Leadership and currently supervise students and qualified counsellors in a management role for a small charity in Rochdale alongside a busy private practice that I manage evenings and weekends. I also provide supervision to front-line staff in my organisation. I aim to provide clinical supervision that supports learning and ensures your continued growth and development for the benefit of you and your clients. My approach is supportive but challenging when needed. I offer a safe space for counsellors to explore client work, any challenges, personal issues, and development including CPD.

My supervision Diploma has prepared me to work with both individuals and groups, working across varying modalities and incorporating creative work.  My aim is to facilitate a supportive and collegiate supervision forum where we can learn from each other.  To guide us in this process, my work is primarily informed by The Seven-Eyed Supervision model developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet in 1985. Supervision is an opportunity for you to enhance your practice and keep both you and your clients safe. I have recently submitted my BACP accreditation to become a fully accredited member of the BACP so have a good knowledge and understanding of the ethical guidelines and good working practices in all areas of counselling. Supervision can be between 60-90 minutes. I offer an initial consultation for free to see if we are a good fit. If you are interested in taking up supervision or would like some extra supervision please contact me to discuss. 

Sessions are £60 for 1.5 hours 

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.
