Supervision details

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals & Groups; Meeting supervision training standards set out by the BACP.

My Ethos: I believe that a positive experience of clinical supervision includes developing an open and honest relationship between supervisor and supervisee. One that allows for a supportive, consultive and restorative experience for all involved that enhances the growth and development of all those within that relationship.

Being trained from integrative viewpoint, I am able to work with supervisees of differing modalities, and varying experience of client work; including open-ended or time-limited. There is a great focus on working relationally in my work and the impact that our supervisory relationship has on client work. Attachment theory provides a core foundation to my supervisory work, to develop the therapist’s ability to work from a relational and attachment standpoint. This helps therapists to develop a real understanding of the impact of early relational and attachment experiences; relating to key developmental frameworks. And the impact this has on the therapeutic relationship.

Experience: My experience has been gained from supervising within my private practice; as well as supervising within an agency setting for groups of trainee therapists, working with Low Cost and NHS clients. When working with trainees I like to focus on enhancing their skills of putting taught theory into practice as well as developing their ability as reflexive practitioners. 

I also supervisee trainee therapists, within a higher education setting. 

Part of my practice as a supervisor, also incorporates allowing newly qualified and further qualified therapists to become more in tune with their own emotional responses to their clients and how this presents within the body; exploring physical symptoms as well as visualisations. 

My Methods: My methods also draw on creative elements. Using drawing, symbols and crafts skills to allow for a more creative expression through the session. With supervisees I have developed relationships with, I also utilise EFT skills to allow for unconscious feelings to present in relation to clients. 

Within my private practice I see supervisees on a one to one and group basis. Either as part of their training and qualification stages, or post qualification as part of their monthly requirement.

Fees:  The fee for individual supervision: £60 for a 60 minute appointment. The fee for group supervision: £40 per person. For 1.5 hours. Maximum of 4 per group.  I also offer a limited number of clients seeking a reduced fee. This is available for students of counselling.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss these further.

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.
