I offer supervision to both qualified counsellors and students. I trained as a counsellor 8 years ago in the person-centred approach, and since then I have completed a diploma in compassion focused therapy, along with various training in mindfulness based practices. I completed a certificate in creative supervision with Jenny Biancardi Consultancy in March 2021.
I’ve counselled in a variety of settings - Substance Misuse, Women’s Refuges, Employee Assistance Programmes. I’m currently Clinical Lead in a service working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Finding the right fit (person, approach) for your supervision is so important. Having a safe space to speak openly and honestly - to celebrate successes, explore self-doubts, bring challenges and dilemmas, and reflect on areas to develop and grow. That opportunity, the core conditions and compassion are what I aim to offer supervisees.
My fee for students is £40 per hour, and £50 per hour for qualified counsellors. I work in person in Newton Mearns and online.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling in our campervan often to the coast, and attending mindfulness retreats.
If my approach sounds like it could be a good fit for you and you wanted to explore that further, please get in touch by phone or email. I offer a free 15 minute call.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
