Supervision details

As an integrative clinical supervisor and counselling lecturer, with many years experience of in counselling adults (NHS & private practice ), children and young people's services, I supervise both L4+ trainees and qualified practitioners. 

Experience gained over 15 years working within the education, social services /child protection, charitable and international education sectors, enhances my ability to support your work.

The exposure gained from living in China (four years and in the Middle East for 5 years) working with 80 nationalities and cultures, EAL /Expat and third culture experiences, will augment your work challenges and support your knowledge of diversity and difference. 

The insights gained from working Online (Since 2009) and face-to-face in the Leek Staffs private practice have proven that offering ethical standards via a modern flexible booking system is likely to reduce stress for supervisees and to save them time and money!

Eg supervisees can reschedule for free up to eight hours before the session starts.

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.
