Supervision details

I work with counsellors and psychotherapists of all different modalities and have been supervising qualified and trainee counsellors and psychotherapists since 2006.

I am an approved supervisor with the University of Salford and work on a sessional basis as a Counselling & Psychotherapy Skills Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University.

Ongoing clinical supervision for practitioners is an essential part of effective counselling and psychotherapy – both in terms of maintaining ethical practice and safeguarding you and your clients.

I aim to create a safe, supportive, challenging, collaborative and creative space where you can explore the issues that your clients bring and those that may come up for you during your client work.

My standard fee is £100 for 90 minutes for individual supervision sessions and £140 for 90 minutes for paired supervision.

Contact me to find out how we can work together to support you and your clients.

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.
