Supervision details

I am an experienced therapist with over thirty years in practice as a mental health professional, holding qualifications in psychiatric nursing, counselling and reflective practice. I am neuro-divergent, as are some of my individual clients. I am passionate about the person-centred approach, and about the development of thoughtful, compassionate practitioners who can offer the potential for healing  and growthful relationship to others. I teach the person-centred approach at The Metanoia Institute and love offering a creative and supportive relational space to students and experienced practitioners alike.

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.
