Supervision details

Welcome! My name is Susanne, and I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, and suicide prevention and safety pack (SIPP) trainer. I trained as a counsellor in the pluralistic and integrative approach, the pluralistic rationale is an ethical one: to strive for a humanistic, holistic, respectful, and collaborative approach and I bring this philosophy to my clinical supervision practice. I have experience working in-person and online using various online platforms. 

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the online professional body (ACTO) which means I work within ethical frameworks to keep us both safe within our professional practice and up to date with current legislation and research. 

I have a background in working many years in the third sector with a front-line organisation specialising in trauma, complex trauma, PTSD and complex PTSD. I have several years practical knowledge and experience working within educational setting of university and colleges offering counselling to students. I work with adults, and young people and have knowledge and experience of working within a short-term time limited and open-ended framework.

I have my private practice online counselling psychotherapy and clinical supervision practice. 

Appointments are available during the daytime, evening or at weekends.
In these busy times I will do my best to accommodate you. I currently work online through the secure platform ZOOM

I hope you find this informative but if you have further questions, please do not hesitate to call me.

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.
