Supervision details

Supervision is a requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors as part of accreditation to professional bodies like UKCP.

It can be so much more!  

Here is my take on supervision and what I can offer you and your practise.

I would value our relationship as the most important aspect of our supervision together and can offer a highly ethically orientated safe place to develop your Person-Centred practise and professional identity.  

If we were to work together I could provide some conversations to support you to develop your own professional identity in-line with your values and preferred identity as a person and a practitioner.  I can provide a high quality level of relating which structures safety for us to explore this complex world, wrangle over ethics and figure out what you might need to enjoy your work even more!

I am a white, heterosexual, cisgender man originally from Hampshire/Surrey but have lived in Nottingham for 20 years.  I would very much welcome people with diverse identities.  I can also offer remote working if meeting in person is not possible or favoured.

Below I have listed some of the knowledge and skills that I have been working on since I qualified in 2017.   

  • Qualified in 2017 with Msc in Person-Centred Psychotherapy from SPTI and work in private practise in Nottingham.
  • Work as a group facilitator running personal development groups for trainee forensic psychologists and have recently started working as a tutor on the Person-Centred MSc course with the Sherwood Institute.
  • Trained in Person-Centred supervision in Norwich with Cathy Burton and Tonia Mihill.
  • I have also trained in Narrative Therapy and integrate ideas from this modality into my Person-Centred practise including my supervision practise. 

A few words about Narrative therapy if you’re not familiar….

Narrative Therapy is based on the ideas of Michael White, an Australian social worker, and is grounded in feminist theory and social constructionism.  It is a systemic approach which is used extensively in family therapy.  Like Carl Rogers, Michael rejected the pathologising of distress but has a different way of considering therapy with an even greater emphasis on the dynamics of power within relationships and how these are informed by dominant discourses within society and its impact on people’s lives.  NT inquires about people’s values to discover alternatives to ‘problem’ narratives that may have previously been neglected or overlooked.  The therapeutic work is then used to give more space to these emerging accounts and to bear witness to the practice of these ‘preferred’ identities and values.

If this sounds of interest please drop me a line and we could have a chat to see whether we might be able to work together.  I Look forward to hearing from you.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

Key details

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.
