Health Psychology Supervision Sessions

Supervision is a type of reflective practice & is required as part of our continuing professional development by the HCPC (BPS 2017).

Supervision enables us to step back from work, consider different perspectives & be effective in decision making.


There is so much to gain in your practice from having access to an experienced Health Psychologist supervisor...

SCPS Supervisor

"One of the favourite parts of  my    work at SCPS is  providing training &  supervision to a wonderful group of HPs.

I have supported them to work through challenges, such as death of a client, HCPC CPD reviews, ethical issues and professional risk at their workplace.

 Supervisee's have been able to get support with experiences of discrimination at work and personal challenges that may impact on their Health Psychology practice ".

Supervision is a crucial way for you to get support and a reflective space to consider your HP work and to develop your practice. My commitment is to provide inclusive supervision, both for you and your client work. Considering protected characteristics and intersectionality and the HCPC standards relating to EDI is a core part of my supervision focus.

My Supervisees
also get exclusive access to private webpages with resources to support their practice, sharing learning across SCPS supervisees, accessing professional guidelines, & providing tips/links. This includes a significant set of resources about inclusive practice.

Supervisee's can also get special offers on selected SCPS training events 
(e.g. 12th Dec 2023 Health Psychology Professional Development session)

My background: 20+ years of supervising HPs, Registered Applied Psychology Practice Supervisor (RAPPS). 15 years applied HP practice in Health and Social Care; 12 years of experience in independent practice.

What can you talk about in Supervision?

You might want to start supervision to help you:

  • transition to a higher grade- we can discuss career development;

  • manage a psychology service- it is good practice to have supervision of supervision

  • focus on applying a new therapeutic approach- we can discuss your clients;

  • branch out from employment - I can help you to build your independent practice,

  • focus on your HCPC compliance- we can develop your plan to meet the 2023 HCPC standards. We can develop your anti-discriminatory practice and any personal experiences of discrimination.
