How do I view supervision? The main purpose of supervision is the professional development of the supervisee and the welfare of the client. I believe that a supervisor and supervisee can be co-creators of a learning experience which focuses on raised awareness and reflection. I specialise in working with counsellors who counsel young people and those therapists who are looking to review their contracting and boundaries with clients. What is my role in the session? Within a professional and contracted relationship my role is flexible. With consideration to the developmental stage of the counsellor I see the tasks of supervision as follows:• to create a learning relationship• to value and support• to consult• to teach• to counsel (limited)• to evaluate• to monitor ethical/professional issues I offer supervision from a humanistic approach. I work with adults, children, adolescents and couples. I am able to access other models of counselling through extensive professional development and training. I work experientially and understand the process of supervision for both supervisee and client. With clear and transparent contracting I work with supervisees to develop their work with clients as well as focusing on their own personal development. I currently work with counsellors, senior management and volunteer key workers in a supervisory capacity. ‘Supervision provides an opportunity for the student to capture the essence of the psychotherapeutic process as it is articulated and modelled by the supervisor, and to recreate it in the counselling relationship.’ Holloway, 1992.

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.
Accredited register membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
