Supervision details

I aim to offer supervision which is warm, supportive and collaborative, enabling you to feel energised in your therapeutic work.  I am a Senior Accredited and registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy. I qualified with a Diploma in Supervision accredited by the Institute for Individual Psychology (ASIIP) with Cambridge Supervision Training (CST) in 2016. In addition to my individual supervision training with CST, I qualified as a Supervisor with Cruse Bereavement Care in 2012.

My supervision experience includes working with experienced counsellors, trainee counsellors and health care professionals in a wide range of organisations including the NHS, Higher Education and Charitable organisations including Cruse Bereavement Care. 

I have previously facilitated long-term Reflective Practice groups for individuals working in other professions, including nurses and support staff in Higher Education. I welcome enquiries from organisations regarding Reflective Practice or supervision sessions for staff. 

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.
