For some years I supervised and managed in addiction group treatment settings, supporting a team of Counsellors and Therapists from different modalities with a variation of approaches and experience.
I am originally Psychosynthesis trained and recently completed a Level 7 Diploma in Integrative Supervision of individuals and Groups with The Grove Practice in London. I am currently supervising in Hertford, both face to face and online and can offer regular support to practitioners according to their requirements. This can be monthly or bi-monthly for one to one and a half hours according to need.
I work collaboratively and believe that we work best in supervision and therefore for our clients when we feel safe, supported and respected both personally and professionally. My aim would always be to enhance the therapeutic relationship that a practitioner has with their clients and to develop skills through a combination of support and collaborative challenge that we build together through our working alliance as fellow professionals.
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.
