BACP Senior Accredited Clinical Supervision
BACP Accredited Clinical Supervision
The world of counselling is becoming more and more difficult as client expectations rise to sometimes unbelievable levels. This is where Clinical Supervision can be critical and an understanding and knowledgeable Clinical Supervisor can assist in the process of working through these issues.
If a counsellor doesn’t return a call immediately, the client can become irate and/or impatient. Understandably so, however the counsellor can’t be in two or three places at once. They have other clients, a life and most often, a family of their own. It can be a lonely job and counsellors often feel unheard and depleted. Having robust Clinical Supervision with a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor allows for experienced nurturing, guidance and a knowing that support is always available is invaluable, in this ever changing world.
We offer the full package of Clinical Supervision to both counselling individuals and groups. Working in this way, allows us to offer telephone and video sessions. We provide the very best nurturing and supportive Clinical Supervision possible: supervisees receive a unique welcome handbook and access to download PDF information at a reduced cost.
Having been through accreditation processes personally, and having worked with many supervisees over the years, we have a good understanding of what is expected and how much effort is required. The whole application can seem daunting at first; addressing your questions and issues around the process in Clinical Supervision can be nurturing and empowering to assist you through it.
In the counselling world, Clinical Supervision is about a continuous and nurturing basis of direction, guidance and education.
All counsellors need to have a trusted and experienced Clinical Supervisor that they can go to for a myriad of professional and clinical issues.
This could be issues relating to;
- Supervision of current clients and caseload/case reviews, treatment planning and suitable interventions.
- Supervision of Continued Professional Development (CPD) skills and training.
- Supervision of supervisee’s self-development, self-reflection and self-care.
- Supervision of supervisee’s work balance for employment or private practice.
- Supervision of effective, ethical and legal services to clients, boundaries.
- Clinical Supervision overview of case notes that work for the counsellor.
- Supervision, safeguarding and safety of all clients.
- Overview and Clinical Supervision of potential court attendance and/or note submission.

“Quality Clinical Supervision is a critical part of all talking therapies, support work and frontline connection.”
I specifically work in general with the seven eyed model of supervision:
- Supervisor focus on the client presented through the supervisee.
- Supervisor focus on intervention and treatments delivered.
- Supervisor focus on the immediate client – supervisee relationship.
- Supervisor focussing on the supervisee’s process, both presented and in the session.
- Supervisor focus on the counsellor – supervision relationship.
- Focus on my own process as a clinical supervisor.
- Supervisor focus on the wider context of what has been presented – overview and solution.

“As a Life Coach, working with spectrum disorders and anger management based issues. Sue Daniels has provided me with regular Clinical Supervision since 2015. Her knowledge and expertise has been instrumental in me setting up my own private practice and being a constant when I’ve struggled with client work, case management and many other issues. I would highly recommend Sue, you will be in a safe and professional relationship.”
“I have been having clinical supervision with Sue Daniels since 2015. Sue’s wealth of knowledge has been invaluable in continually guiding, nurturing and enhancing my skills, helping me to become a better Counsellor, which in turn has proved more beneficial for my clients. She has been a central role in encouraging me to see ways through many dilemmas and boundary issues. I always look forward to supervision knowing I will feel supported, debriefed and completely refreshed afterwards.”
“I chose Sue Daniels for clinical supervision because of her experience. Working in the heart of domestic and sexual violence, I needed someone who would be strong enough to gently challenge my practice, yet able to empower me at the same time. I couldn’t do my job to the extent that I do, without such valuable back up and support.”
“I work in the main with people who have lost children. This is quite a difficult area, especially with such raw pain being presented regularly. With no disrespect to any clients, it can really drain me at times as I’m sure it does with many others. Honestly, without Sue’s support, guidance and gentle reminders about boundaries and self care, I think I would have packed it in years ago. Working with bereavement is one of the hardest but also the most rewarding. I’ve moved to Newcastle now, so I’ve been using the Zoom system and it’s brilliant for me. Highly recommend this woman.”
