Supervision details

With over five years experience as a  person centred counsellor, I bring my theoretical approach to my supervision. Working in accordance to BACP Ethical Framework.

I see clinical & developmental supervision as knowing how and when to shift subtly between the role of mentor, teacher, encourager and temporary therapist as appropriate. This means that if we work together, I am able to adjust the range and type of support offered in a way that matches a your own level of experience as a supervisee, while allowing  you to move towards increased understanding of, confidence in and responsibility for your own practice. 

This is all done within the context of developmental and integrative models, reflecting on your therapeutic practice in which you are encouraged to feel safe to explore both strengths and weaknesses. 

My typical supervision session would see you checking in before going on to survey your caseload, either with reference to individual cases or by exploring emerging themes or patterns. We can also explore any 'issues' or dilemmas that exist within practice. 

In terms of structure, I draw inspiration from Inskipp and Proctor (2001) and tend to focus on the following: 

Restorative considerations - Being supportive and thinking about your  wellbeing. Humanistic approach allowing ability to explore feelings.
Formative considerations - Helping and encouraging your to growth and develop as a professional. Sharing knowledge and recommendations 
Normative considerations - Monitoring and discussing the way you work, ethical practice and the way that theory underpins your practice. Maintaining best practice

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.
