Supervision details

hi, I'm Tracy

I am a practising Integrative Relational Counsellor and Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor.  I also have a Psychology degree and lots of previous experience of supporting and nurturing the growth of individuals and groups.  

I enjoy and value my own supervision and work with warmth and purpose to recreate a similar experience with my supervisees.  I offer a safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore the therapeutic relationships you have with your clients and support you to grow in ways that feel authentic to you and your practice.  My training and ongoing development enables me to support you in your preferred modality and also consider other approaches and creative ways of working if that feels useful.

Although I work solely in private practice now, I receive referrals from employers and care agencies and often work with people experiencing challenging lives.  Depending on your practice, I understand that you may well be working with clients who have extremely difficult and distressing experiences and I can collaborate and share my experience and expertise with you when this would be helpful.  

Working in helping professions is challenging and as well as client safety, your safety and wellbeing is at the heart of our supervisory relationship.  

I offer in person supervision from my practice in a welcoming, relaxed setting in Horbury, 5 minutes from the M1 Junction 40 and easily accessed from Wakefield, Huddersfield, Leeds, Barnsley and surrounding areas.  There is parking for you right outside.  If you don’t live near enough to see me or prefer the convenience of remote supervision sometimes or always, then I’m happy to work via Zoom or telephone. 

My fees for supervision are £40 for 1 hour, £60 for 1.5 hours.  Reduced fees are available to trainee counsellors. If you would like to chat about the possibility of us working together, contact me on or 07838 318410.  

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.
