Supervision details

Hello and welcome to my supervision profile.  In supervision, my aim is to create a safe space for you to share the pain, joy, skills, knowledge and life experience that you bring into your role as a counsellor.  I am interested in learning about you as a person and how you work with your clients.  My aim will be to get a full understanding of the interpersonal and intra-psychic processes between you and your client, to support your self-development and awareness as well as ensure that your client is supported safely.    I believe that good supervision feels safe, comfortable and challenging so that you can develop as a practitioner and your clients can receive from you a good and safe service. I am an integrative supervisor and my supervisory practice is enhanced by extensive counselling experience in domestic and sexual abuse, mental health, addiction and refugee support and counselling services.  I have experience of offering supervision in organisational settings where I have facilitated supervisory groups for counsellors, social workers and Guardian ad litems who have been involved in independent assessments for the court with regard to what is in the best interests of children in court proceedings.  I also offer reflective group supervision in agencies. I can offer face-to-face, telephone and online supervision using the safety of Zoom video conferencing.  I am based in South Manchester with easy access to travel links and parking. If you are looking for a supervisor, I can offer support to trainee counsellors and experienced pychotherapists.   My supervisory approach combines the Inskipp and Proctor model with the Shohet and Hawkins model.  This means that the work of counselling is supported in a  safe supervisory space where supervisees can receive support for their work with clients whilst being supported to develop professionally as well as engage with the normative aspects of supervision which require the monitoring of the client work.  The Shohet and Hawkins model explores the relational and personal processes systemically at various focal points such as: client-counsellor; counsellor-supervisor; counsellor-agency; social and political context too.  My supervisory practice is enhanced by my many years of working in varied counselling contexts that has enabled me to develop expertise in  in trauma-informed, person-centred and integrative modalities. I offer lo-cost supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists in training at £50 for 1 hour. Individual face to face, online or telephone supervision is  £70.00 for 1 hour session.  Fees are negotiable depending on financial circumstances.

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.
