Supervision details

Supervision is fundamental to the counselling process and an essential tool to ensure that counsellors are working in service of their clients whilst also maintaining their own wellbeing.

As a Level 6 Clinical Supervisor I combine the Seven Eyed Model with the Integrative Development Model and have undertaken additional specific training in online, telephone and asynchronous counselling to work with counsellors who work remotely to adhere to BACP guidelines. 
 The reason I became a supervisor is much the same as the reason I became a therapist; I’ve had really great ones, and really dreadful ones, so I know how it feels to have a lot to say and no idea how to say it.

​Clients have told me I am warm, open, and kind, and this has allowed them to accept challenge whilst still feeling safely held. 

This is what I endeavour to also bring to our supervision sessions.

It is your time and your journey and through the supervision models I use combined with a relational approach, I want you to feel that you are able to fulfil your potential as a therapist.

​I will strive to create an environment where you feel comfortable to bring whatever is on your mind, with no judgement or criticism. Supervision should be a safety net that allows you to let go without fear, with space to explore not just how your client work is progressing but how you experience the work.

​I believe in individuality and try to tailor sessions so they feel like they really fit with you and your way of working.

I use felt sense a lot in everything I do and believe our somatic experiences are just as important as our memories, this applies to counsellors as much as clients, sometimes what you feel in a session can offer much more than what you have read in a book.  

​I spent a number of years volunteering as a therapist for a Gloucestershire based counselling charity where I now supervise volunteers. I have worked in private practice since 2013 and also work for a mental health and disability charitable trust. 

During my first six years with the Trust I worked 1:1 with individuals in the community whose mental health had caused extreme isolation. 

From 2021 to 2023 I sat on the advisory board for the local ICS Community Mental Health Transformation project, where I also had the pleasure of working with some amazing experts by lived experience.  I continue to advocate for codesign and coproduction in the creation of services.

​My work is informed by Internal Family Systems and I have a particular interest in early life trauma and it’s relationship to later life diagnosis of personality disorder.

​I am a member of the BACP, NCPS and ACTO

​I would be really happy to hear from you, if you think we would be a good fit for your supervision.       

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.
