Supervision details

I'm a qualified clinical supervisor who works with trainees, newly qualified and experienced counsellors and those working in school pastoral and leadership roles. I work in person (in Haworth), online and by phone.

I have experience of counselling teenagers and adults in school, college, community and private settings around a variety of issues. I've done a lot of work with clients who are neurodivergent and who have had adverse childhood experiences. 

I am broadly Person Centred and have a flexible and creative approach, being informed by elements of other modalities, depending on the age and needs of the client.

I see supervision as a collaborative process where we work together in a supportive, encouraging environment to explore any professional, ethical or personal issues relevant to your practice. I hope to create a place of safe challenge where you can flourish in ways unique and relevant to you.

Do get in touch to discuss your supervision needs. I offer a free initial session so we can see if we feel the right 'fit' for each other.

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.
