Supervision details

·       The purpose of ‘counselling-supervision’ is to give you consultative support to maximise the constructive and healthy nature of your counselling relationships in addition to attending to your wellbeing by providing you with your own constructive resource that also breaks down the isolation of the counsellor role.

·       We will have a contractually negotiated relationship to support, evaluate and develop your professional practice

·       If you are a student, I will only use the same theoretical orientation you are training in until you gain experience.

·       I will help you with any ethical dilemmas that arise in your practice, draw your attention to any ethical issues or standards of practice that may be overlooked and help raise your ethical awareness.

·       I will help you to identify and process the vicarious trauma which helping professionals experience in their daily working lives and give support and guidance to prevent burnout and attend to your emotional wellbeing.

·       I will have an empathic and compassionate understanding of the considerable demands counselling places upon you and will endeavour to help you should you become over-involved, confused as to what is happening with a particular client or have undermining doubts about your own usefulness.

·       While working with the distress and difficulties of others you may seek to avoid areas that are painful to yourself which could frustrate any healing for your client. I aim to provide a safe, supporting, collaborative relationship free of evaluations to enable you stay open to yourself and your clients.

Other tasks I will undertake and their description:

Formative; skill development, reflection on experience, new understandings, new knowledge about the counselling process, possible insights into the client group, specific issues raised by clients.

Normative; counselling standards ethics and practice, monitoring the quality of counselling, consideration of feedback from your clients. 

Restorative; dealing with personal issues which cause stress and may affect your work and stress arising from counselling, validating achievements.

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

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

I have a wheelchair accessible office available and can also do home visits or provide online counselling

Type of session

In person

I am a very experienced supervisor and meet once a month for a supervision session with four colleagues who all supervise supervisors.
