Supervision details

I am effective in supporting supervisees to develop their skills, knowledge, experience, self-belief, and ability to become increasingly reflective. I encourage and promote a climate of growth, supporting supervisees to develop their own internal supervisor and become increasingly confident in their work.

I offer online, telephone, face to face and walk and talk sessions to fully qualified and student counsellors. I create a safe space for supervisee's to reflect on their practice whilst receiving compassion, acceptance, congruence and support.  

I am a trauma informed practitioner and support supervisees to develop their knowledge and understanding of how to effectively work in a trauma informed way. I have over 15 years experience of working with individuals who have experienced trauma, violence and abuse.

I have many years experience in writing and delivering bespoke training packages for continual professional development.

Please contact me to find out further information or to arrange a free half an hour session which will help you to determine whether I am the right supervisor for you.

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.
