Supervision details

I am a Trainee Supervisor working within the modality of Person-Centred therapy, at present I am offering reduced fee sessions whilst I complete the latter part of my training course.

I am a strong advocate for a Triangulated approach to Supervision where there is an equal balance of Restorative work (Support, confidence building and personal struggles, for example, imposter syndrome or feeling de-skilled), Formative work (Sharing and increasing knowledge base, identifying areas of CPD and developing your inner Supervisor) and Normative work (upholding professional standards and exploration of issues that may challenge client practice). I believe that a combination of all three allows for a supportive, honest and collaborative space to enrich your approach to client work and ongoing commitment to the helping profession. 

I believe that I am a good judge of when its best to be assertive, to offer challenge and to highlight blind spots, whilst maintaining care, compassion and a supportive lens in our work. I also see Supervision as an ever-moulding relationship, whereby regular reviews every 6 months will allow us to fine tune what you need from the space and from me as a peer, colleague and mentor.

My areas of specialism are life-limiting illness, chronic pain, terminal illness and approaching death, bereavement, addiction, trauma and relationship work, and also working with children in pre and post bereavement. I have gained experience across these topics during my 13 years of working within mental health services, such as; Psychiatric intensive care units, Inpatient wards, Higher education settings, GP surgeries, Wellbeing Centres and Hospice care. 

I currently offer sessions both in person at my office in Dukinfield, Greater Manchester, and also online. My days of availability are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. 

Feel free to get in touch if my profile has left you with any questions or if you would like to book a free 30 minute initial call, where we can explore our suitability to work together. I look forward to hearing from 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.
