Much like my counselling philosophy, I offer a warm and supportive environment for my supervisees. With over 10 years in private practise as a counsellor, workshop leader and lecturer, I understand the joys and challenges of this work, and love supporting other counsellors.
Supervision is an important and necessary part of working in the helping field. It is vital that when you feel stuck or challenged, you have the right mentorship and guidance in place. As an experienced counsellor, it is very likely I have found myself in similar situations and quandaries as you have, and I will gladly share my expertise with you. I am here to make sure you are secure in your skills, using BACP’s ethical guidelines at the core of my practice, and keeping your individual needs in mind.
Working in private practice can sometimes feel like an isolating experience, which is why meeting with a core group of therapists in group supervision can provide a great feeling of a community. This format is limited to a small number of practitioners, which allows more time per person to confidentially discuss case files, share knowledge, and discuss treatment options with fellow group members.
Group work also allows for themed meetings, where we discuss important topics such as boundaries, transference, resistance, grief and loss, case studies, and a variety of other subjects.

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.
In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).
