Supervision details

I have completed an Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision (including Telephone and Online Working), have full insurance and registration with the ICO.  

I offer online and in-person Person-Centred Supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors working in either of these formats.  

My training is focused on practice with adults.  However, with experience across the ages, encompassing 17 years' post-qualification counselling and a background in social work, I bring valuable insight on work with young people.

I intend to provide a supportive, gently challenging environment for supervisees to reflect on their work, to ensure their ongoing development and ethical, effective practice.  In line with my own practice, my focus remains on the importance of achieving rapport, mutual trust and openness.  I aim to offer a safe and accepting space where you can bring all of you to supervision – doubts and areas for growth as well as achievements.

Whether you are a trainee looking for your first supervisor or a qualified counsellor seeking a change or new challenge, please contact me to arrange a no-fee meeting of around 30 minutes to discuss how we might work together.  I am happy to forward my Supervision Contract.

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.
