I am passionate about supervision as a supportive, reflective and transformative space for therapists be they experienced or in training.
I have worked as a clinical supervisor both in the UK and Australia. This international experience continues to broaden and enriched what I offer in the supervisory space. My supervisory training, based in Sydney at the Centre for Existential Practice, is anchored in and informed by systemic perspectives with reflective practice at its core. Michael Carroll’s Integrative model and Hawkins and Shohet’s Seven-Eyed Models have a particular resonance in the way I work.
I aim to support supervisees to cultivate
-reflection and reflexivity
- authentic presence in sessions
- faith in the way they work
-skills that they trust
-deep wisdom for the choreography of the therapeutic dance.
-a practice based on integrity
-the ability to work within the scope of their practice
My preference is to work with individuals and small groups face to face so that we can access the felt sense and lived experience of our work. Supervision then becomes a creative place where questions can unfold and expand into the unknowns and unexpected terrain of the therapeutic work.
“the exquisite paradox of supervision that never ceases to engage me is the dance of opposites: the truth is usually the opposite of what I believe. The so call ‘bad’ experience leads to the light, the light to the darkness; the detail leads to the bigger picture; the bigger picture is illuminated by the specific; the breakdown becomes the break through and everything, but everything is relevant and grist to the mill” Joan Wilmot
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.
