Supervision details

I am a fully qualified clinical supervisor (QLS level 6) and an BACP accredited  counsellor. I have experience working in private practice as well as in educational settings such as the EKC group where I have had approximately 5 years experience providing supervision for qualified staff, volunteer counsellors and counsellors in training. I have some experience with offering supervision reports when needed. 

I offer supervision face to face or online, either individually on a 1:1 basis and I also offer supervision groups. I provide supervision for counsellors and other professions that require or benefit from supervision and have experience in working with line managers, teaching staff, healthcare professionals and safeguarding/progression mentors. Please feel free to contact me to discuss this further.

As a humanistic counsellor, my approach is mostly person-centred using Gestalt and TA, however, my supervision training was integrative using Hawkins & Shohet's Seven Eyed model which works and fits with my own orientation. I feel this approach can be applied to any helping profession. 

I feel that the relationship between supervisor and supervisee is fundamentally important, in the same way as it is between counsellor and client. I approach supervision very much focusing on building a positive working relationship and ensuring that supervision is a collaborative process, working together to gain increased understanding, confidence and responsibility for your own practice alongside the development of reflective thinking, encouragement and challenging when necessary.

I aim to make my supervisees feel safe, respected and comfortable so they are free to explore their client work as well as their personal experiences and reactions in the counselling room. I am able to adjust the level and type of support offered in a way that matches a your own level of experience and what you need from supervision.

It is essential to find a supervisor who is the right fit for you to get the most out of supervision.  I am happy to offer a quick call or zoom call where you can ask me any questions you have and get a feel for who I am as a supervisor. 

My fees are:  £60 for 1 hr. 

Please see my counsellor profile and website for more information. 

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.

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.

There is access via lift to my room, please ask for details regarding access.
