Supervision details

I am a Psychotherapist and Supervisor registered and accredited with the BACP. I have ten years experience of counselling and clients presenting with a range of issues from stress, bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression to complex psychosocial issues such as PTSD. My experience has been gained from a number of work place settings, from a hospice, in the community, in the voluntary sector and private practice. I am a Clinical Lead of an abuse and trauma service, I have a caseload of service users with complex needs and supervise/mentor trainee therapists on placement. I am experienced in case evaluations, risk management and safeguarding. As a supervisor I work with student counsellors, qualified counsellors I offer supervision to organisation. I am a clinical supervisor at a Trauma service and a children's Hospice. I have supported many student counsellors through their placements in an organisational setting as well an a private supervisor. I'm a qualified Supervisor of qualified and student Counsellors.I am a registered member of the BACP and am bound by their strict Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.  I regular attend my clinical supervision and  I am very passionate about ongoing CPD (continued professional development) in order to retain their professional membership. I work in an is integrative way. I can help you to develop your own counselling career as well as guiding your clinical work and your personal development. I work hard to get a good balance between support and challenge and - as with my counselling work - I aim to provide a warm and safe environment for you.  If you'd like to consider me as your supervisor I offer a free 30 minute meeting. I'd be pleased to have an informal chat to see if you want to take this further. Please contact me to arrange a mutual convenient appointment time.

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-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.
