Supervision details

A fully qualified clinical supervisor and offer supervision to qualified counsellors/psychotherapists, as well as trainee therapists and supervisors.

Having worked as a Person Centred Counsellor/Cognitive Behaviour Therapist for many years I have considerable experience in helping children, families, adults, and couples to overcome their difficulties so they may enjoy life.  As well as running my own private practice, I work in secondary schools, and I offer supervision to many different professionals to help identify how to support the people they are working with and reduce the worry or stress they may be experiencing due to carrying big caseloads or complex cases.

My approach is to work not only with the client material, but also with you as a Supervisee so that you grow in your work.  Supervision is about growth as a therapist and should be a supportive learning space. I work relationally and follow the Hawkins and Shohet 7-Eyed Model of Supervision. Although my background is person centred, I pull on all aspects of modalities and use them in my practice.   I believe in creating a safe, supportive and challenging therapeutic environment which allows my supervisees the space and privacy to talk openly about their caseloads.  By providing the therapeutic core conditions, it enables my supervisees to open up for fear of judgment and be honest about their experiences.  The essential qualities I see as central to this process include:

-          A commitment to genuineness in the therapeutic relationship; being a real person rather than ‘the professional/ expert’. Offering my therapeutic skills may be helpful but will be limited if I do not also share my humanity.

-           A willingness to actively attempt to gain as full an understanding of the supervisee and their client as possible. 

I am available for clinical supervision sessions during the daytime and evenings and am available for both face-to-face supervision and online sessions via Zoom or Teams.  I hold a Certificate in Supervision from the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy.  

BACP
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.
