Supervision details

I can offer a safe, supportive and reflective space to explore the many aspects of your therapeutic work. I work in a flexible way and will collaborate with you to ensure that our sessions are attuned to your supervision needs.

Having been a qualified counsellor for a decade, I recognise that what we seek and require from supervision changes over the life course of our career in counselling. I will endeavour to meet with you fully at the place where you are currently in your journey as a counsellor, taking both your professional and personal self into consideration, respecting where you have come from, your experience and your future developmental needs.

I bring a broad range of therapeutic experience to my supervision work, from being a trainee counsellor in placements to having worked in agencies and the voluntary sector with trauma and addictions, and also being in private practice with individuals and as an associate counsellor with EAPs. I work in person and remotely with specific qualifications for online counselling and supervision, and I am accredited with the BACP.

If you are looking for a supervisor, then please get in contact to arrange an initial chat where we can explore the potential to work together.

Sessions are £50 per hour for qualified counsellors, £45 for trainees.

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.
