Supervision details

I offer confidential supervision for therapists and other professionals. My aim is to provide a safe and supportive space for you to discuss and explore issues relating to your work and help you to provide best practice. I hope to support you in your professional and personal development.

Creative/art approaches are also available as another way to explore and potentially gain more insight.

I have been in counselling practice since 1999 and provided supervision since 2005. My practice as a supervisor and therapist is influenced by a person-centred philosophy and I bring my extensive experience of working with people from a diverse range of backgrounds and settings. I am a Registered Accredited Member of the BACP and work to their code of practice.

Sessions can be arranged according to your requirements.
Telephone and remote sessions are also available.

Supervision sessions from £50 per hour.

You are welcome to contact me to discuss your requirements and how we might work together.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

There is disabled access, ample free roadside parking and practice rooms downstairs which I can arrange to use if required. Telephone sessions are also available. Please let me know on booking if you have any access requirements.
