Supervision details

I believe that supervision offers practitioners a space to pause and slow down, to be given a safe place to reflect with depth on our relationships with clients, to review our skills and areas for development, enhance our confidence in our practice and consider our own self-care needs - all in the service of the people we are supporting.

As a supervisor, I have over 15 years' experience of working with individuals, groups and teams in the care & support and social housing sectors. I have transformed that experience to offer clinical supervision to students and qualified therapists, holding a Certificate in Supervision from the Centre for Supervision and Training Development (CSTD)*.

I combine CSTD’s seven eyed model, with my own trauma-informed integrative therapeutic approach, mixing humanistic modalities with psychodynamic, inner child / family work and somatic practices, such as mindfulness and breath-work. I am therefore able to work with supervisees from diverse backgrounds, working in a variety of settings and with different modalities. This includes qualified therapists in private practice; student trainees on placement; and therapists in teams, working within the complexity of multiple relationships between their organisation, client and supervisee.

I offer constructive feedback, helpful challenges and questions to support you to reframe situations where you feel stuck, co-creating a learning environment for us both.  I support the supervisee's work within their own modality as well as offering other approaches, such as exploring the supervisor and supervisee's own embodied experiences to gain deeper illumination into the dynamic in the therapy room.

I work in line with the BACP ethical guidelines, and my supervision practice is supported by my own regular in-depth integrative and trauma-informed supervision, as well as my personal mindfulness and somatic practices.

If you would like to discuss starting supervision with me, contact me to book in a free 20 minutes consultation where we will explore what you would like from supervision and the frequency that will best support your practice.  

My rate is £55 for 60 minutes of supervision.


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.
