My supervision approach reflects how I work with clients, aiming to create a trusting environment where supervisees can explore their work in an accepting and valuing relationship, and where they retain autonomy whilst getting the support they need in order to thrive. I am fully committed to the support and growth of my supervisees, and use a blend of supervision approaches in order to deliver this, including Proctor's three function model (Normative, Formative and Restorative functions) and The 7 Eyed Supervision Model. I also utilise a considered balance of encouragement and challenge depending on the stage in your growth!
My way of being is much in keeping with my belief about what can be most therapeutic in working with clients - an authentic approach with a focus on our working relationship.
In terms of counselling modalities, I studied (and teach, in my role as a counselling tutor) an Integrative approach blending person centred, and psychodyamic theories, under the umbrella of Clarkson's relational framework. So do reach out if you feel my way of working could compliment your way of being as a therapist, and we can hold an initial session to explore this further.
Supervision sessions can be held remotely (via Zoom) or in person at my therapy room in central Reading.
Please get in touch if you feel my supervision style may be a good match for you, my fees are £60 per 1hr session, and £75 per 1.5hrs session.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
