Supervision details

I offer clinical supervision for trainee counsellors at level 4, recently qualified counsellors and experienced counsellors. 

I ask that you have professional indemnity insurance (either personally or via the organisation that you work for) and that you are a member of a professional organisation such as BACP and abide by its code of ethics. 

My therapy room is based in Broughton Astley, South Leicestershire for those choosing face to face and I also offer online supervision.

I am a person centred counsellor with over 18 years experience working with adults, couples and young people (from 10 years of age upwards).  I also have training in CBT and TA. 

Effective counselling relies on the emotional health, wellbeing and development of the counsellor and clinical supervision helps to maintain this.  Supervision helps the therapist to reflect on their own feelings, thoughts, behaviour and general approach with the client.

I am trained in using the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision.  The seven eyes refer to seven different ways of looking at the client presentation and related relationships.  I am also trained in using IPR (Interpersonal Process Recall).  IPR helps increase awareness of covert thoughts and feelings of the client and self in the here and now during supervision which can bring clarity and potentially deepen the relationship between yourself and your client(s).

An important factor in clinical supervision is the match between supervisor and supervisee.  I aim to create an environment where you feel safe enough to bring all aspects of your work. 

I will work collaboratively with you supporting growth and development through exploration of your client work and the relationship with your client(s).  The aim being to enhance your skills, competence and confidence as a practitioner and also to ensure that professional ethical standards and safe practice are maintained throughout.

I believe that supervision is a combination of support and challenge and the balance will vary depending upon where you are in your own professional development.

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.

Key details

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.

The therapy room is wheelchair accessible.
