Supervision details

Training & experience

My formal clinical supervision training is a CPCAB Level 5 Certificate in Relational Supervision – Children, Young People and Adult Focus). My therapeutic modality is integrative, humanistic and relational.

I am experienced in providing supervision to both qualified and trainee counsellors who work with young people and/or adults and I currently do so both privately and for external agencies. Additionally, for those professionals already working as supervisors I can provide ‘supervision of your supervision’ sessions.

My training also equips me to facilitate therapeutic supervision groups for counsellors or those who work as mental health professionals, or in skilled support roles with adults and/or young people.

I am also a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor (Registered Member MBACP) and over time I have worked as a counsellor in a range of settings, now choosing to focus on private work. I am also a tutor on a CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling for Counselling Adults, Children and Young People. Previously I have taught on both CPCAB Level 5 Certificate and Diploma courses in Counselling Children & Young People. 

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.

Working together

My approach to supervision utilises the Alliance Model (Proctor) which supports the balance between the different aspects of supervision (normative, formative & restorative). 

I believe that a relational approach to supervision is key to being able to develop and sustain rich working relationships, and to help facilitate this I incorporate the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision (Hawkins and Shohet) into our work. This helps to focus in on areas in a way which is responsive to what is being brought into the room and the context of our relationship - ultimately helping to develop your practice and support client well-being.

Appointments & fees

Individual supervision sessions are offered on Zoom on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning and Thursday afternoon.

As the relationship we build together is a vital part of the supervision process, I would be happy to meet initially on the telephone or Zoom for up to 20 minutes without charge, so that we can see how we connect and to talk through your supervision needs.

I can offer flexibility over the frequency of sessions, with the minimum session length I offer being 30 minutes. My fee is based on £60 per 60 minutes for qualified counsellors / £50 per 60 minutes for trainee counsellors, payable by bank transfer.

I do require you to provide a minimum of 24 hours’ notice of a cancellation or the full fee will be payable. Where possible I try to offer an alternative appointment during the same week.

Notification of a cancellation can be made by call, text or email.

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 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.

In-person counselling sessions take place in an accessible ground floor therapy room with free public car parking close by.
