Supervision details

Creating a therapeutic space for human development changes both client & therapist, supervision is key to ensuring safe integration and development.

‘Supervision is recommended for anyone providing therapeutically based services, working in roles that require regularly giving or receiving emotionally challenging communications, or engaging in relationally complex and challenging roles’ – Introduction to Supervision, BACP website. 

A space to reflect is essential for counsellors, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals to not only receive support for their work, but it is also key to working within an ethical framework and ensuring they practice safely.

I am a counsellor with 15 years’ experience and a qualified integrative supervisor. I work with trainees, counsellors, therapist and members of the wider therapeutic field.

The supervision I provide will create a safe space that facilitates self-reflection and development. You can bring your whole self to our sessions where I will provide support that is nurturing, informative and challenging to enable real meaningful growth and assimilation. Together we will set out to develop yourself and the support you provide to clients, facilitating a deepening of awareness, understanding and an exploration of new skills.

With core training in Gestalt, psychodynamics and CBT (for my full training please see ), I provide both one to one and group supervision, working with trainees and experienced professionals from a wide variety of therapeutic models and backgrounds.

In addition to my therapeutic career, I have worked in the social justice sector for many years and thoroughly understand the connection between personal well-being and the broader systems we are a part of.  I actively strive to improve my awareness and education around intersectional topics, including disability, racism and discrimination, developing an understanding of how it plays out in society and impacts us.

I feel it’s a duty for mental health professionals to thoroughly explore the part we may play in upholding structures that contribute to discrimination; whether consciously or not, whether inside or outside of the therapeutic room. I welcome open, honest and brave exploration of these topics in supervision to help expand awareness on the subject and identify how we may all work towards more inclusivity in the work we do.

During our first session, we will explore your needs and requirements for supervision including previous experience as well as practical details. We will co-create a way of working together and a rhythm that best suits you, ensuring we are a good fit to maximize the benefits of the space.

I welcome people from all walks of life, all cultures, all belief systems, all the many genders and those from the LGBTQIA+ community. 

As someone who knows the cost of training to enter this field, I am happy to discuss concessions for trainees. 

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.
