I offer monthly or fortnightly supervision and have some flexibility to offer online or telephone supervision outside of my normal opening hours.
As an experienced counsellor, and as a manager of counsellors and counselling services for many years in the NHS, I understand the importance of supervisees feeling they have a safe place to speak congruently about their practice, learning and self-care.
I aim to provide an atmosphere of warmth, professional respect, honesty and positive affirmations, while holding a responsibility to the clients of the supervisee.
The cyclical model of supervision, which I practice in, has five stages which are explored non-sequentially depending on the needs of the work at the time. The model is grounded in beliefs that supervision should be supervisee-centred, holistic, primarily a containing and enabling process which focuses on enhancing the therapeutic value of the work. The supervisor offers core conditions of warmth, respect, genuiness and empathic understanding in support of this process.
If you are interested in discussing or booking supervision with me, please contact me.
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.
