Supervision details

Having completed an Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision, Including Online and Telephone Working, which is mapped to the supervision competencies set by Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO), the National Counselling Society (NCS) and the BACP. I offer a supervision service for both qualified and student counsellors. I provide collaborative supervision offering a space where supervisees can breathe, speak openly and reflect on the valuable therapeutic work undertaken. I use the 7-eyed model of supervision as an effective and robust way of working in supervision. Helping supervisees see and understand the supervision model helps them develop their internal helicopter supervisor. I embrace the diversity of counselling styles and ways of working with clients.

  • Clinical supervision 1 hour £40

Counselling background I practice in a Client-Centred way offering human-to-human contact with a high level of empathy without judgment. I have provided counselling in different settings to children, young people, and adults; these settings include An Addiction Centre, where I supported individuals in understanding their journey into addiction and helped them foster self-understanding and forgiveness. In my Local Mind, in this role, I provided psychological support for the community, helping clients understand their internal discomforts and interpersonal/relationship dynamics. My Local Hospice, within the Hospice I, counselled individuals who have been bereaved, helping them understand their grief journey after the death of a loved one. I also supported people facing a life-limiting diagnosis and provided counselling to families losing a loved one to a terminal illness. I currently have my own private practice called Easy Reach Counselling.

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.
