Supervision details

Hello, I am a BACP accredited, integrative counsellor and clinical supervisor and I understand choosing a supervisor can be difficult.  I encourage you to meet me for a chat by phone, in person in WA7 or by zoom, to check out our fit and, so we can get to know each other a little and to be able to ask each other questions, before making any decisions.  

I enjoy working collaboratively with experienced counsellors both supervising their work and/or supervising their supervision. 

It's also a pleasure, to be part of the journey for trainee counsellors.

To my clients, supervisees and all those I work with, including teachers, social workers and staff from other professions, needing external supervision, I aim to offer a supportive / reflective space.

Trainee counsellors can need a range of flexible options of supervision, whether this is needing monthly or twice monthly supervision, whether needing an hour or two lots of fourth-five minutes or any other mix - ask me and we'll discuss this. 

I offer a discounted rate to trainees and newly qualified counsellors with less than five clients and I’m happy to explore the perils & opportunities of starting up in private practice.

I am practical, empathic and I have a good sense of humour and a wealth of knowledge & experience to help with whatever arises in the supervision.

I've worked as an integrative counsellor in private practice for eighteen years. I've also worked with Relate, working systemically with individuals, young people and relationships.  I was a counsellor in a secondary school, for Relate, for three years so I am familiar with the pressure that can arise in schools and colleges.

I am trained in the use of Mindfulness, NLP, Transactional Analysis, Systemic and Attachment Therapy.  As well as Person Centred, Solution Focused and Integrative approaches and I have a deep interest in Transactional Analysis.

I trained as a Clinical Supervisor in May 2022.  My model of supervision is the '7 eyed model' as described by Hawkins and Shohet.  

As a supervisor, I’ve now completed supervisor reports for Supervisee’s accreditation applications and for CPCAB, both 50 & 100 hour reports as well as Mid Placement and MSc Reports.  

Reports do take up a great deal of time and again, I like us to take a collaborative approach - you will usually draft a few ideas / examples of when you applied theory to practice, this ensures course criteria is met.  I will review my supervision logs and together we will create a first version of the report for us to review / work on collaboratively – there is a fee for this, which includes all discussions / meetings regarding the report, the write up(s) and any email discussions on this topic – this usually equates to one session fee.

I offer supervision to any professional who want space and the opportunity to explore their work without prejudice or being 'line managed'.  In some instances, teachers, social workers prefer to call this 'continued professional development'. 

I am down to earth and I will mostly work collaboratively with you but I do challenge, if necessary.  

Whilst I understand mistakes can feel awful at the time, I really do believe these mis-steps can be a great learning opportunity rather than a failure - none of us are perfect and when we learn from our mistakes, we don’t tend to repeat them.

i also think this applies to successes - when we look at the positive steps, we are more likely to repeat the successes too!

Once we've had a chat, consider this - would you be comfortable asking me a daft question? Could you bring an awful day to me - confident we'd work through it together and find the learning opportunities - if not, I'm not the supervisor for you. 

For one-to-one supervision, I am happy to work flexibly - however you need supervision, online, by phone or face to face in WA7 or a mix, whenever is needed.   

Fees for one-to-one supervision are £50 per hour or £70 for ninety minutes (I offer a discount to newly qualified with less than five clients, trainees & students who need a 45 minutes or hour or a mixture a fortnight - please ask me about this).

However, please note, if you need two sessions per month - both sessions have to be paid for at the start of the month, in advance.

We counsellors love our work, but a big downside is we’re often working in isolation.  

This is partially why I also offer online, group supervision.  All of my small supervision groups, are supportive, enlightening even, at times, funny - these are also a great opportunity to share with, and bounce ideas off, other counsellors.  

I love group supervision - consider coming to join me in one of these or, if you need a group for your work or college - contact me and we can start a group. 

If you are a trainee counsellor - please contact me as when there is enough interest, my next new group will be just for trainee counsellors - if you’d be interested, please let me know what days / time / length of supervision - 60 or 90 minutes, might suit you (no obligation).  I’d prefer to keep this group to four so each attendee can each claim 50% of the supervision as their own, as per BACP rules.

My fees for online, group supervision are reasonably priced, to encourage participation, these are £20 for one hour in the fortnightly group or £30 for the two-hour, online, monthly groups sessions.

There is small supervision group on a Tuesday, at 1pm for an hour - we do this twice a month (at lunchtime for convenience) - for up to six counsellors in the group but, due to life & other commitments, usually three or four attend.

There is currently a spare place, so if this time slot would suit you - please let me know and you could start next supervision - give it a try.

I also have three, two-hour, monthly, small supervision groups, all online,:

Monday afternoon, 1.15 and Thursday 12.45 both of these are for relationship counsellors - there is a space in the Monday group.

Wednesday morning, at 9.15am - for general counsellors

All my groups are online, supportive and friendly.  The mix of modalities is really useful too.  There is one spare place, for a relationship counsellor on a Monday or Thursday and one spare place in the fortnightly, Tuesday group - please let me know if you are interested in one of these.  If one of the other groups would suit you, let me know and I'll put you on a wait list.

Over the years, I have gained a huge bank of experience.  I also work with groups, as a facilitator for programmes such as Separated Parents and working with male perpetrators of domestic violence. I am also happy to come to your school or employment to supervise groups of staff (even mixed roles) on a monthly / bi monthly / bi term basis. 

Please feel free to contact me for more information or to find out if we'd be a good fit - no obligation

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.
