Supervision details

An overview of how I work –

Within supervision it is important to be open and honest in exploration of self and client work, which can only fully be achieved when practitioners feel held and completely supported.  My ethos to supervision is to provide a warm, supportive, and professional environment where supervisees can explore all aspects of their client work so they can process the impacts that their workload has on them, maximise their wellbeing whilst understanding, meeting and responding to their clients’ needs more fully.

Working together we will seek to gain awareness of self and practice and further develop appropriate ways to help you grow and develop in practice.  We will also look to maintain a sense balance through integrated self-care routines and appropriate prevention strategies to cope with the demands of the profession.

Finding a supervisor, who is the right fit for you and the way you work is vitally important to help you stay grounded, maintain professional and ethical boundaries, whilst also developing both theoretical and practical knowledge. It is vital that we both feel comfortable and at ease in our working relationship so we may achieve the most we can from our sessions.  An initial 30-minute session is offered for us both to get a sense of how we could work together and ensure that we are a comfortable fit.

Practice description – 

I currently offer supervision online via Zoom, Teams or Skype, with a view to re-start face to face sessions in early 2023.

I have undertaken training in both Person-Centred Theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and am able to offer supervision to therapists who work solely within either of these theories or who use a blended approach within these theories.

I work within Proctors Model of supervision, which consists of three domains; 

Formative (growth-based): which relates to learning, skills development and professional identity development. 

Normative (monitoring-based): which refers to accountability, developing best practice, ethical and legal considerations and professional standards for the wellbeing of clients. 

Restorative (Support-based): which considers the impact of the work on the supervisee, and the necessary psychological support and scaffolding required to offer professional support to the supervisee. 

Whilst predominantly working within the Seven-Eyed Supervision model I also bring in elements of various other supervision models depending on the supervisees needs. 

What to expect during the first session - 

During our initial 30-minute session we will talk through expectations of supervision and a working agreement.  This will cover the aims of supervision, the theoretical frameworks I use, practicalities of our work, such as location and frequency, roles and responsibilities, how you like to present your work, areas of self-development, how ethical frameworks will inform work, whilst also discussing safeguarding, record keeping, confidentiality and GDPR.  

Coming to the end of our first session, potential supervisees will have a clear sense of how I work and how we could work together going forward.

I offer 1 hour supervision sessions at £45 and 1.5 hours at £60.  I also offer a discounted rate for trainee counsellors.

Please get in touch on the details provided if you wish to discuss any of this further.  

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.

My premises have wheelchair access and accessible toilet facilities.
