Supervision details

As well as Private Supervision Contracts I currently supervise the Consultants and Doctors at St. Christopher's Hospice South London and the Counselling and Psychotherapy Team at The Shakespeare Hospice Stratford-upon-Avon. 

Previously I have supervised therapists working within a Pan-London Counselling Agency for Young Refugees and Asylum Seekers, a Cancer-Specialist Service, a National Homelessness Charity, a South London agency supporting Carers, a National Gambling Addictions Association, a GP Surgery and several National and Pan-London Mental Health and Substance Misuse Charities.

Counselling Supervision is a forum that involves giving away, sharing, reflecting and reviewing via a frequent, multi-faceted, collaborative relationship; bringing out the best in those involved, enriching, empowering and making work and life more fulfilling for counsellor, supervisor and client alike, as well as safeguarding client well being. 

Supervision necessitates interaction, an alliance, mutuality, co-creativity and collaboration – co-supervising and the ideal of being in relationship.

Supervision aims to be a happy place where supervisees can develop and grow via creative teamwork; a forum in which to share, support and respectfully challenge. Presentation of clinical work will receive formal and informal feedback, with client welfare being central at all times. The space allows for considered reflections on college work and experiences and importantly on any personal issues that may impact on fitness to practise.

The task of Supervision is to support professional learning and development and to monitor and improve performance. Supervision promotes reflective practice with the agenda being the therapy, feelings about that work, together with the reactions, comments and challenges experienced in the supervision. The supervisee and his/her work are central – Supervision is not second hand counselling.

Supervision enables the supervisee to grow in ethical competence and practise so as to give her/his best possible service to clients. It is ultimately a process in which clients are safeguarded and empowered to get the best help possible; something to never lose sight of.

In the first session, we will assess together what your Supervision Requirements are. Identifying and Contracting to include the: 

Process and Task, Enablement and Accountability, Roles and Responsibilities, Expectations, Practicalities, Evaluation and Review, Confidentiality. 

BACP
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.
