Supervision details

I qualified in supervision at the Manchester Institute of Psychotherapy From my own experiences of receiving supervision I value it as: a space to 'say it how it really is' and be supported, encouraged and not judged, an opportunity to generate fresh insights that benefit me and the client , a place to 'check out' things I'm unsure of and learn,  a place I can be me and not have to  pretend to know more than I do.  As a supervisor I'm committed to making supervision all of the above and more.  I ask my supervisees to regularly review the supervision they receive from me so I can continually review and improve my practice . I’m particularly interested in supervising therapists who are integrating EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique which involves the client tapping on their own acupuncture points during talking therapy) and other Energy Psychotherapies into their practice. A basic knowledge of EFT is useful in conjunction with other therapy modalities and can deliver good outcomes at times. However when skills are honed with EFT specific supervision EFT can regularly deliver excellent results. Many people liken it to playing the violin. A basic knowledge of the notes makes it possible to play simple tunes. However with ongoing coaching a virtuoso performance becomes possible. For therapists who just require EFT specific supervision to ‘bolt on’  to their current supervision arrangements I offer monthly 30 min EFT focused supervisions. Some therapist buddy up and share a monthly joint hour long EFT supervision with a colleague. I offer PVT specific supervision for therapists who want to convert theoretical learning into tools to use in therapy that can significantly empower the client to manage dysregulation and open the door to increasing the effectiveness of other therapies.​​ Often just two or three PVT supervisions can cause a therapist to feel very confident with these tools and so enable their clients to derive more benefit from the approaches they are already using.​ ​I offer PVT supervision on an individual and group basis as with EFT (see above). A free one hour session is available for you to check out the way I work to see if  we would work well together.  Fees: £75 for one and half hour supervision.  SUPERVISION: TRAINING:

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.
