About me and my therapy practice
My counselling modality is Pluralistic with a Person-centred foundation, and my supervision style reflects this. As a pluralistic supervisor, the main focus is the development of our supervisory relationship and working collaboratively to ensure your needs as a supervisee are being met. I use techniques and interventions from a variety of modalities e.g. EMDR, CBT, Internal family systems, solution-focused, flash technique and Rewind therapy. My main specialist area is working with psychological trauma, however, I do work with a wide range of presenting problems and client groups. Therefore, I will bring into our supervision sessions a wide scope of perspectives of what a client may find useful at different stages of their therapeutic process. I provide a caring, supportive, and non-judgmental environment to help you navigate your professional experiences and we will work together so you get what you need from our sessions. As a supervisor, I will offer you my honesty and respect while we explore issues you feel you would like to bring to supervision and will work on developing your own inner supervisor so you are empowered to discover solutions to issues in a supportive environment.
The fee for supervision sessions are:
Initial assessment – Free
Individual sessions- £40 x 1 hour / £60 x 1.5 hours
My model of Supervision is the 7-eyed model, whereas your supervisor, I will be aware of each “eye” that can affect your practice. Although this is solely in my own awareness and you do not need to be aware of them, I have listed each of the eyes below: Focus on the Client Focus on Interventions Focus on Client/Therapist Relationship Focus on the Therapist’s Process Focus on Therapist/Supervisor Relationship Focus on Supervisor’s Process Focus on the Wider Context
My first session
I offer an initial free 30-minute session, where we can have a chance to meet to see if we feel comfortable working together. In this session, we can go over what supervision is, what I offer and your current and future needs for supervision. This meeting is completely no pressure as it's very important to get a feel for your supervisor and to ensure that you feel safe and confident with whomever you choose. At the end of our initial assessment, I will also give you a copy of the working agreement for you to look over in your own time to make a fully informed decision if you wish to book your first session. If you choose to book your first session, this can be done at the end of our initial meeting or over email. If at the end (or after) you feel I’m not the right fit, I can always give you details of other local supervisors who come highly recommended.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
