Supervision details

I am a qualified, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been in practice for over 15 years.  As a qualified, Integrative Clinical Supervisor, I provide one to one and group clinical supervision for qualified and trainee therapists and other frontline professionals. 

My approach is relational to help supervisees feel at ease and be able to explore their work in a collaborative, supportive and educative environment.  I work using the Shoet and Hawkins 7 eyed model, which explores;

1) How the client is and looking at what they present in the session

2) Exploring strategies and interventions used to facilitate the work

3) Focusing on the relationship between the therapist and client

4) Exploring what is happening for the therapist, internal processing, transference/counter transference

5) Focusing on the supervisory relationship, what is going on in the clinical supervision sessions between ourselves i.e. parallel processing

6) Exploring my reactions to what is being brought by the therapist.

7) Focusing on the wider contexts of the work i.e. environment, cultural aspects, wellbeing and ethical framework.

I offer an initial complementary telephone or online appointment to look at any questions you may have and explore how it might be working together. Alongside my private practice, I work with the following organisations providing one to one and group clinical supervision; Women's Aid, Roehampton University, Cruse Bereavement and a homeless, suicide prevention Charity.  I also work with other counselling training establishment providing supervision for trainee counsellors.

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.
