Supervision details

I completed BPS accredited supervisory training: "Good Practice in supervision training: supervision theory and skills"-11.2009-06.2010. 

I have worked in the NHS and in particular in the eating disorders service in Hertfordshire for 17 years, mostly as a psychology lead . 

I have supervised qualified, trainee and assistant psychologists and
 multi-disciplinary groups in an adult inpatient and both outpatient and community teams. In my NHS psychology lead role I have completed mid and end of placement reviews and appraisals with trainee and qualified psychologists as well as psychotherapists under my supervision and helped them to identify areas for development and training. I frequently provide ad hoc supervision
 to variety of professional colleagues with queries regarding clients' risk management, treatment plans, psychological formulations and/or to debrief after difficult interactions.

I am a counselling psychologist and a CAT Psychotherapist hence I offer both CBT, psychodynamic, CAT and Integrative Therapies supervision. I offer both individual and group supervision. 

My supervision fee is £ 100 per 60 minutes. 

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
