Having worked as a Supervisor for 20 years before I became a Counsellor, I now offer supervision to both trainee and qualified Counsellors on an individual or group basis.As a BACP accredited Counsellor since 2004, my aim is to offer my Supervisees a warm and supportive space from which to explore their clinical work at a deeper level and to help develop their counselling skills.I believe the relationships between both Counsellor and client and also that of Supervisor and Supervisee are equally important and will reflect a valuable part of the work. Stemming from a psychodynamic approach, I enjoy exploring the unconscious and any parallel processes apparent. I also like to consider other theoretical approaches, including integrative and CBT and will adapt my supervisory style to the level and experience of the supervisee.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
