Hello! Supervision is imperative to good counselling practice. I can provide a safe trusting environment for you to reflect on and discuss your work, focusing on personal and professional responses. My aim shall be to support you in your personal and professional development allowing space to be a reflective practitioner. I believe the relationship between supervisee and supervisor is paramount to working ethically and this collaboration can be enriching to the counselling process. I am able to work alongside counsellors whom practice from various modalities including my core person centred approach. Supervision affords me the opportunity to work with other counsellors and challenge, nurture and increase self confidence allowing more enjoyment from ones work. As a supervisor there are elements of guidance and teaching and nurturing but I am also happy to learn from my supervisee's making this much more a collaborative working alliance. I offer warmth, non judgement and confidence in my ability to supervise.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
