Ian Baker

Detailed Information

My aim as a supervisor is to create a safe, supportive space and collaborative in order to help supervisees explore and understand their capacities and responses to client work, develop skills and grow professionally. The freedom to explore how clients affect them, reduce the risk of burnout and awareness of secondary and vicarious trauma, and help through an annual review of the code of ethics that their work is appropriate and falls within the ethical and professional standards of their respective professional body.

I am registered with the BACP and COSRT. I switched carers after travelling and working for NCOs for 4 years and began my therapist training in 2010. I trained as a humanistic therapist 2011 (L7), then as a psychosexual therapist 2013 (L7) and a relational therapist 2013 (L5). I trained at the Laurel Centre (ISAT) in 2014 for sex addiction and STOPSO in 2014 for those who have crossed the line or seek help with deviant thoughts/fantasy. I am registered with StopSO and a Clinical Associate with the Laurel Centre. My supervision training was in April 2017 (L7).

My background includes working in a rape and sexual abuse centre for 4 years, students services at my local university, Relate, Group work for eating disorders (SYEDA) and Group work for self-harm and bereavement support for 5 years at the local Hospice. I am a former Vice Chairman and Trustee of the ATSAC. I’ve worked as a trustee for STOPSO, Counselling in Prisons network (founding trustee) and Huddersfield rape and sexual abuse centre. I have provided training to Manchester NHS, BASHH, SMMGP, COSRT, ATSAC and University counselling services.

My work with individuals and couples is informed through a range of frameworks; person centred, gestalt, existential-phenomenological, trauma-informed, systemic theory, attachment, CBT, body work (somatic), mindfulness, intra personal parts – internalised family systems and the polyvagal nervous system

I offer supervision services to both qualified counsellors / therapists and trainees.  I work from Sheffield and have used zoom now for over 9 years
