I trained as a counselling supervisor in 2007 and have now achieved the status with BACP of Snr Accred Supervision of Individuals. I have experience of supervising counsellors, particularly around Bereavement work but also involved in generic counselling practice, and have successfully seen several students through their placements to achieve their qulifications, as well as working with more experienced counsellors. In my view, supervision should be a collaborative process in which both parties are ready to learn from the process. Though there may be an element of support or teaching involved at times, I am as happy to learn from your experiences as I hope you will be open to learning from mine. As I work in a Person-Centred Integrative way, and have a good understanding of many different theoretical orientations, so I feel I am able to work with Supervisees in a way which suits them best. I see supervision as a meeting of two people in which they can both bring their expertise with the aim of better understanding both the clients involved, as well as ourselves. I can work Face-to-Face in person, via telephone, or using Skype.
Cost £50 per hour for qulified Counsellors, (£75 for 1.5 hours) Discount available for Student Counsellors reducing cost to £40 per hour (or £60 for 1.5 hours)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
