Supervision details

My aim in providing supervision is to offer you a supportive, safe and friendly environment, either online or in person.  My practice as a counsellor is Integrative and this is reflected in my supervision style, having trained in the seven-eye relational model. It is important to me that as my supervisee you feel safe to explore what is happening in your work with your clients.

Fundamental to my practice is the belief that supervision should be supportive, educative and normative and I work with this in mind.

I have a considerable amount of experience of working with experienced counsellors, counsellors in private practice, and student counsellors.  I currently work for a charity in Cardiff as a Clinical Lead.

Qualified with a Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision including Online and Telephone work.

My theoretical background is Humanistic Existential and I have undertaken training in CBT.  I am also a trauma informed counsellor.  I have experience of working as a counsellor with clients in private practice, in EAP settings, through MIND and with NHS patients.  

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.
