Supervision details

I am a qualified Supervisor and offer both individual and group supervision. I have varied experience  and have provided supervision for large organisations,  individual counsellors and mental health workers.

My supervision training focused on the relationship between therapist, client and counsellor and the wider system. However, I tend to employ additional models/practices if I feel they can be beneficial in providing holistic and wholesome support.  I am also happy to work creatively, using various materials to suit the individual/group, or work outdoors using nature to help us to process and reflect.

I consider supervision to be an opportunity where together we explore and  reflect, gaining insight and awareness. It involves transparency and honesty and provides a space where we can acknowledge both the personal and professional challenges we face. It is also a place where we can monitor self-care and celebrate our successes and achievements - embracing  our whole self and specialness.

 I particularly enjoy working with counselling students and due to my work as a tutor, I understand the many obstacles  that students often encounter. 

Fees are £70 for individual supervision. I offer reduced fees for counselling students and people in receipt of benefits and am more than happy to discuss this with you.

Please contact to discuss group supervision . Fees are negotiable and dependent on  type of supervision and size of group.

I offer a free 30 minute session , face to face, online or by phone, where we can have an informal chat to see if I am the right supervisor  for you. The relationship is important and there  is no obligation if it doesn't feel right for you.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. 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.
