I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor of Individuals. I am an experienced supervisor and offer Person-Centred Supervision to individuals and groups. I also jointly run a supervisor training programme through Person-Centred Workshops. I have worked as a supervisor for Colchester Institute on their BACP accredited counselling programme and have a private practice offering supervision to qualified counsellors at all levels of experience. I am also qualified as a "Counselling for Depression" (CfD) supervisor so I am able to work with counsellors using this approach, both in training and once qualified. I am experienced in supporting supervisees through the BACP accreditation process. I usually see individual supervisees for either an hour or and hour and a half per month (an hour per fortnight for student counsellors) but this is negotiable. From my fees for new supervisees are: £50 per hour or £70 per 1.5 hours Concessionary Rate - £40 per hour or £55 per 1.5 hours (for students and newly qualified counsellors - also available to counsellors working solely on a voluntary or low cost basis)Group Supervision from £40 Working from my home office means I am able to keep my overheads, and therefore my fees, as low as possible. However if cost is an issue some further concessions may be available, please contact me to discuss this.
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.
