Supervision details

I offer supervision to both individuals and groups and I supervise online and in-person.  My experience includes supervising and supporting education professionals, staff of organisations working with vulnerable people, and counsellors.  

I offer a containing space to support, develop and reflect with supervisees. I aim to foster a safe, encouraging environment that allows supervisees to be vulnerable, to explore areas of difficulty, to nurture growth, and reflect about themselves and their work. My hope is that supervisees gain confidence and proficiency in their therapeutic efficacy and have the opportunity to develop their identity as practitioners.

Contact me for further information, or to have an exploratory conversation (no cost). 

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.
