Providing CBT Supervision in the UK

Training in Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy requires ongoing close assessment and supervision, which I am happy to provide for a cost-effective price. With a vast range of experience in the industry, I am a fully qualified teacher with more then 198 hours of training in Pedagogy. I will support you in your training needs alongside University provider to make sure you're trained to the highest standards, which places you on the right path for future CBT accreditation.   

Supervision is offered in 3 formats: One-to-One

(Face-to-Face); Skype (Video call) and Group (Face-To-Face)

BABCP Supervision Hours Calculation: 

Number of Supervision Hours : Number of Supervisees x 2 = 

Examples of BABCP supervision group calculation:

  • 1 hour of supervision : 2 supervisees X 2 = 1 hour of supervision per supervisee
  • 2 hours of supervision: 2 supervisees x 2 = 2 hours of supervision each
  • 1 hour of supervision : 3 supervisees x 2 = 45 min of supervision each
  • 1.5 hour of supervision : 2 supervisees x 2 = 1.5 hours of supervision each
  • 1.5 hour of supervision : 3 supervisees x 2 = 1 hour of supervision each
  • 2 hours of supervision : 3 supervisees x 2  = 1.5 hours of supervision each

If you are a BABCP Trainee, please check your Student Book for Supervision Recommendations. It is usually recommended that you have supervision every two weeks to support your training needs. You can have one-hour one-to-one supervision and additional

hour(s) in a group of two or three. This arrangement to be discussed with training University / college as requirements can differ from University to University.

Teaching is My Passion

CBT supervision is a field that I am heavily interested in, as teaching has always been a passion of mine. To make sure that I am doing my best, I also started working towards BABCP Accreditation as a CBT Supervisor and Trainer. This is expected to be achieved in 2020. 

If you’re looking for a CBT supervisor, there is a requirement for your supervisor to be a BABCP accredited practitioner, yet I feel that working towards BABCP supervisor accreditation adds to the process. As long as your supervisor is a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Therapist, you should be in good hands.

However, supervisors are like teachers. Some, you get on great, and others you would rather never meet again. My advice, if you don’t feel supported during your supervision, move on and find somebody else. The learning process needs to be satisfying and fun; being stressed during your supervision will cause unnecessary delay in your progress. Shop around!

If you are working towards BABCP Accreditation after you finished your training, please make sure your familiarise yourself with ‘At a Glance Checklist of Requirements for Provisional Accreditation’ document available at BABCP site.

Important Information to meet BABCP accreditation requirement:

  • You have been supervised for 8 clients with three different clinical presentations;
  • Out of 8 clients: 4 clients must be marked as case studies & 3  audio/video assessed clients in line with Cognitive Therapy Scale -Revised requirements;
  • Minimal hours of supervision is 40 with 200 clinical hours supervised;
  • You have to submit 12 months of ongoing supervision log if you had a break in your practice.
