Supervision details

I am a warm, friendly and down to earth person who is able to offer a safe and confidential supervision space where you will feel supported, encouraged and enabled. I strive to be the kind of supervisor who is without judgement and will be there for you, not only when things are going well, but when things are tough. Being a counsellor can be challenging; especially because our personal lives run alongside.  My supervision sessions have both the client and my supervisee at the heart of the work we do together. I see supervision as two professionals together; I see your clients through your work with them. 

I had been a qualified counsellor for five years before deciding to embark on supervision training . Having originally trained in Person Centred Counselling I see myself as Integrative in practice. I have experience in working therapeutically with children 5 years through to adults in their 80s.  I continue to work with clients and split my time equally between being a supervisor and a therapist in my own private practice. 

In terms of supervision, I use the Seven Eyed Model. I offer a free initial telephone call if you have further questions or just want to find out whether I am right for you.

I normally charge £60 for 90 mins supervision (online) or £70 for 90 mins face to face (includes cost of room hire). I offer both evening and weekend supervision sessions. In addition, I will make time between formal supervision sessions, if you need additional support in your client work. 

I have experience of working with both qualified and trainee counsellors.

Thank you for reading my profile. Warmest wishes for your journey ahead. Helen 

BACP
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.
