Supervision details

As a supervisor, the working alliance I have with any supervisee is fundamentally important, and while different and distinct from the therapist-client relationship, there is some crossover.

In essence, if it's impacting you personally, it may be impacting your work, so having a space to be able to unpack some of that stuff and feel safe doing so is essential. While our supervision sessions are not therapy, they can indeed be therapeutic. I view my supervisees as a whole person, as opposed to just a therapist.

The core conditions being present is essential for it to be a space where there is scope for development, insight, reflection, growth, challenge and support.

I can work with therapists at any stage of their career, whether you are in training or are an experienced therapist; whether you are looking to fulfil a supervision requirement or wanting some extra supervision, I can support this.

While my specialism is in Outdoor Therapy (I've written and delivered numerous workshops on taking your practice outdoors), it is not essential, or indeed necessarily important that you work in this way. Indeed, our supervision itself can take place indoors, outdoors, on the phone or on Zoom. 


  • £40 per hour for therapists in training
  • £50 per hour for qualified therapists


  • Supervision can take place in my office (G3 postcode), outdoors or online.
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.
