Supervision details

A healthy counselling practice is built on the solid foundation of quality supervision and support.

As an integrative counsellor and trainee psychoanalytical psychotherapist, I offer integrative supervision, using the Seven Eye Model as a framework, for a multi-dimensional perspective, which holds the client at its’ heart.

Along side this, I also run Reflective Practice groups and 1-2-1 Sessions with therapists wishing to more intentionally focus on their development, aspirations and professional identity.  


Being a counsellor is a hugely rewarding job, it is a highly skilled role and a privileged position – often we are hearing stories and experiences disclosed for the first time.  This is both humbling and a huge responsibility, and as a counsellor, you know having trusted supervision is vital to your safe and ethical practice.

Quality supervision is the foundation on which a healthy practice can thrive and finding the right supervisor can be a matter of trial and error.  The relationship has to be the right fit and of course what works for one will not necessary be a good fit for another.

Research shows supervision is most effective when supervisor and supervisee feel sufficiently comfortable to honestly explore issues, celebrating achievements but also safe enough to admit mistakes and consider areas for personal development.

I have experienced many different types of supervision (both 121 and group) in the different settings in which I’ve worked.  I personally found I get the most from supervision when together we create a space where:

  • We work collaboratively, acknowledging each others professional strengths, similarities and differences;
  • I feel safe enough to admit mistakes and consider the shortfalls in my knowledge and experience without being judged;
  • All thoughts and ideas are admissible and a potential source of learning;
    Self-care and self-development is given due consideration for the part it plays in enabling therapists to work in the best interests of their clients.

Together, we create a psychologically safe environment in which you can explore your client work, without judgement.  This a space where it’s OK to admit mistakes. We both take accountability for developing our relationship and we hold the client at the centre of everything we do.  This sits alongside your ongoing development and self-care which can so often be sidelined when we work in service of others but I firmly believe “you can’t pour from am empty cup!”.

Does this resonate with you?  If you can relate and would like to explore working together, please do get in touch.  I offer a free 30 minute ‘chemistry’ call to see if I am the right fit for you as a Supervisor.  

I am currently offering a limited number of discounted sessions while I complete my placement hours, please contact me to find out more.

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.
