What you can expect from me as a supervisor…

I am open to working with counsellors from various modalities as would seek to understand your individual approach to counselling. I also have experience as a Counselling Skills Tutor at Leeds Beckett University, working with counselling trainees on the PG Diploma.

My job as a supervisor is to uphold the counselling profession; I do this by working with the therapist to monitor client safety and wellbeing and creating a facilitative and nurturing environment in which we can explore together the therapeutic relationships between you and your clients, and reflect on the unconscious processes which can emerge between them. 

Also in the process of supervision, I would support and encourage the supervisee to become aware of any internal responses that may help enhance their personal and professional development.

I offer an initial 30 minute online consultation to see if we may work together. This is charged at £25. 

Fees: £50 per 60 minutes or £70 for 90 minutes.

For trainee counsellors I offer 60 minute appointments fortnightly for £45 per session.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My office at Pontefract has wheelchair access
