Supervision details

I am passionate about the importance and power of supervision, to ensure that as therapists we are supporting our clients to the best of our abilities, whilst also keeping a check of our own wellbeing and training needs. As a supervisor, I work with individuals and groups, including fellow therapists and other professions. Supervision can be agreed at a frequency and duration which works for you. I work flexibly and as in my therapy practice, am led by your needs, bringing an integrative and collaborative approach.

My cross-profession supervision support is aimed at organisations and individuals who may have a need for emotional support, containment, processing and consultation due to the nature of their work.

I trained to be a supervisor through a BPS approved course, covering a range of theoretical approaches and bringing my own experience of many different types of supervision - and my life and work experience beyond the therapy field. 

I offer what is known as the formative, normative and restorative framework. This means I help identify and suggest ways to meet development needs; give guidance and scope to discuss best practice/ethical questions; and provide emotional support, which might look like helping a supervisee review how they are looking after themself. Alongside this, I work with the 'seven-eyed' supervision model which looks at all the relationships within a piece of therapeutic work, and the context it is taking place in. This complements the way I work myself as a practitioner.

I work flexibly, largely by Zoom but can offer adhoc face to face sessions, or come into the workplace. I also offer 'guest supervision' - one-off or limited supervision sessions when you may be in a well-established supervision set-up, but be keen to seek different perspectives and insight, or if your usual supervisor is away for a period.

I have a special interest in offering cross-professional supervision, in the form of consultative support, if you or your organisation is involved in high pressure, emotionally demanding work. This could include law, medicine, care, education, utilities, policing. Contact me if you want to discuss how I can help you and your organisation.

As with therapy, a supervision contract is agreed at the start of working together. We would use your first session to outline your current practice and supervision needs, and decide if I am the right fit for you. Supervision sessions last one hour, longer times can be arranged, and are advisable in the case of any groups.

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.
