Supervision details

As a supervisor, I offer a space for you to bring the highs, lows and dilemas that arise in your client work. I aim to be a resource to help you sustain yourself as a practitioner, allowing you to grow and develop while practising safely and ethically. I offer alternative perspectives, an active and informed witness to your work, a degree of challenge, and a partner in thinking and feeling through the challenges that you are working through. My experience is in both adults & children, 1-1 and group therapy & supervision.

If you would like to work with me please get in touch. The next step is for us to have an initial conversation of around half an hour, to explore whether we are a good fit. There is no fee for this initial exploration.

My normal fee for supervision is £60 session (£45 for trainees) and sessions last an hour.

I can work with you either face to face in Edinburgh or online. 

BACP
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.
