A specialised form of professional mentoring provided for practitioners responsible for undertaking challenging work with people. Supervision is provided to ensure standards, enhance quality, advance learning, stimulate creativity, and support the sustainability and resilience of the work being undertaken.” BACP 2016

Clinical Supervision

Good supervision is at the heart of keeping us safe and sane as therapists. It’s the parallel process to the work you do with clients and a relationship where you need to feel understood, supported and sometimes challenged to learn and grow. My Private Practice offers clinical supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists from a wide range of working models, client groups and contexts.

(Please note supervision is not currently available for couples or family work, or for medical professionals)

Alex Pledger is Senior BACP Accredited Therapist with over 15 years of clinical experience. Her core training is integrative based on person-centred, CBT and psychodynamic theory, but she is familiar with multiple models and ways of working with clients. She supervises therapists from a variety of backgrounds but her specialism is working with therapists in private practice, both in setting up from scratch and helping to grow and develop your practice. 

Clinical supervision strikes a balance between you, your clients and your practice.

  • Philosophy – a shared attitude to client work, what it means to be a therapist and the complexities of the work we do
  • Purpose – to feel supported with clinical client work as well as your development as a reflective practitioner and self-aware person
  • Process – a fluid, open, two-way communication which embodies the same quality of relationship we offer to our clients

Clinical Supervision Fees

Working to the BACP Ethical Guidance (BACP resources), the requirement for clinical supervision is 1.5hrs a month. If you have supervision in a paid or voluntary role and are looking for supervision for your private practice clients only, it might be that 1hr is enough, depending on your caseload.

Supervision is available nationally, online via Zoom, Whats App or telephone.

Fees are £65 for an hour, £95 for 1.5hrs.

If you are looking to combine clinical client supervision with private practice mentoring and/or support with your accreditation, we can look to divide our time each month, or book additional sessions to address specific areas you want to work on.
