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.

Working With Trauma

For those bereft from losing loved ones naturally or by tragic demise. When that death isn't final for those who are left behind, when it is a long hard road ahead. They seek to avoid the inevitable changes that are taking place. Those affected are compelled to be thrown powerfully into the unknown. We can only work with clients to explore their understanding that acceptance means letting go, letting go of that which is and never was in their control or their responsibility.

Working with Domestic Violence and Abuse

As we learn new and effective physiological treatments for those who have been targeted by violent individuals within relationships, outcomes are becoming far more suited to the post traumatic growth of those affected as a whole. An understanding into the basic functioning of the adrenal glands is crucial when working with victims of domestic violence, giving useful insight into how the body can quickly become overloaded with stress and how such a response can manifest into a myriad of illness. Adrenal fatigue is just one of the physical aftershocks of the violence element in domestic abuse.

Working with Rape and Sexual Violence

The trauma caused by rape and sexual assault can often be further compounded by unthinking or insensitive comments from people who may judge, disbelieve or disparage the victim. This authoritative resource draws together advice for all people in the helping professions on how to work with victims of rape and sexual violence. The wide-ranging topics cover the effects of rape, male rape, childhood sexual abuse, sex trafficking and prostitution, and sexually transmitted infections, giving best practice advice on how to offer effective and compassionate support to help survivors.

“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:

    1. Supervisor focus on the client presented through the supervisee.
    2. Supervisor focus on intervention and treatments delivered.
    3. Supervisor focus on the immediate client – supervisee relationship.
    4. Supervisor focussing on the supervisee’s process, both presented and in the session.
    5. Supervisor focus on the counsellor – supervision relationship.
    6. Focus on my own process as a clinical supervisor.
    7. Supervisor focus on the wider context of what has been presented – overview and solution.

    All Supervisors working with SJD Clinical Supervision and Consultancy Services are Senior Accredited Supervisors and members of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), each has their own professional liability insurance and are qualified experienced and trained to provide Clinical Supervision.


    “I’ve been having supervision with Sue since January 2020. She is very knowledgeable and has been able to help and advise me with everything that I have presented. Sue has given me confidence to ensure that I am working ethically and adhering to the BACP guidelines as well as nurturing support regarding CPD and further training that may be of interest or might further develop my counselling skills.”

    Dawn Wilkinson

    (Counsellor BACP)


    “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.”


    Lisa Leonard

    (Counsellor/Coach BACP)


    “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.”


    Diane McCarthy

    (Counsellor BACP)


    “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.”


    Deborah Marshall

    (Counselling 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.”



    (Counsellor BACP & NLP Coach)


    “I have supervision with Sue and I am really pleased with the support I have received. We have built a great relationship which has been professional, trusting and has felt like a secure base for myself and my practice. I would be pleased to recommend Sue to others wanting robust support with their work as a practitioner.”
