My supervisory style is first and foremost relational; my aim is to support you from a wholistic approach, which ensures that your clients receive the best possible care and your resilience remains robust. My interpretation of ‘wholistic’ is an environment and relationship which provides compassion, curiosity, nurture, challenge, mutual respect and appropriate humour. In the words of Michael Carroll (2014) I provide “…listening, recognition, confirmation, challenge and care.” How I work I strive to develop supervisory relationships that are collaborative, explorative, supportive, informative, trusting, open and honest. It is important to me that you feeling safe to explore all aspects of your work without fear of judgement. I view supervision as an opportunity to gain ‘extra-vision’ of your therapeutic work. My supervisory approach is underpinned by Inskipp & Proctor’s model of the functions of supervision; Normative (practising ethically, lawfully), Formative (learning, growing) and Restorative (letting off steam, re-balancing). I also use Hawkins and Shohet' 7 Eye Process model and work with the unconscious process to explore parallel process, transference and counter-transference that may exist within the triad relationship of therapist, client and supervisor. I provide opportunities to work creatively, using objects and materials to better understand your client’s worldview and enhance the therapeutic work. I am an experienced, qualified supervisor; I work individually or with groups, privately and for organisations. Fees: My hourly charge is £70 for individual supervision. I offer a discounted rate of £100 for 1.5 hour appointments. This fee also applies for groups up to 3. Fees for group supervision with more than 3 supervisees are subject to negotiation. If you would like further information please contact me for an informal chat.
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 membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
