Supervision details

Our therapeutic relationship with clients is at the cornerstone of the success of counselling. This is also true in Supervision, and I hold this at the core of my work therefore, I aim to support my supervisee’s in their client work; their well-being, theoretical knowledge and growth. I have experience in private therapy and within a busy mental health charity where I have been mentoring, supporting, and supervising counsellors (qualified and trainees). I am trained Integratively with a Person-centred foundation; I utilise my professional experience and specific training in Hawkins & Shohet's seven-eyed model for supervision and offer both face-to-face and online sessions or a blend of both.
If you are interested in the collaborative work I offer then please contact me for a free initial conversation. 

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.
