Supervision details

If you are looking for a professional and friendly supervisor with unique experience to offer high quality support to you in your professional development, I can help. 

I deliver supervision to student counsellors, qualified practitioners and other practitioners in care and/or service professions. These include Social Workers, Domestic Abuse Support Workers, Safeguarding Leads, Complex Key Workers, Early help Family workers, Child Protection officers and more.

From experience, I know that it can be rewarding, but exhausting to be in a supportive role like some of those listed above. It can leave us feeling overwhelmed, overloaded, deflated and often under supported. I aim to change this.

Clinical Supervision with me, will offer a safe place to unpack feelings that arise in your practice, walk through situations you’ve been in and by supporting you, allow you to continue to provide the best quality of care for your clients.


I am trained in a range of counselling approaches, but ultimately my approach is "Client" or "Person centred". This means that whilst I will bring my experience and skills to our sessions, the session is all about you and you will be treated as the expert in your work.

I have extensive experience of supervising practitioners who work with specific issues relating to; domestic abuse, complex mental health issues, drug and alcohol addictions, childhood sexual abuse, trauma and individuals who live complex and chaotic lifestyles. 

I have worked with people of all ages, genders, sexualities, cultures and religions. As a strong advocate for racial and gender equality, I believe in empowering people to find their voice to be heard, and this is embedded across my practice.  

If you feel you’d benefit from my support, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

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.
