Supervision is a requirement for therapists, however it can also be an enriching arena for personal and professional development. I provide a safe space for my supervisees to explore their potential and bring themselves and their client work transparently for exploration. I work with counsellors and psychotherapists, both individually and in groups, from a wide range of backgrounds, from therapists in private practice to NHS therapists and non therapeutic professionals. My own background is in Gestalt and Body Process psychotherapy and CBT and I have a range of experience in other therapeutic modalities. I also co-deliver diplomas and various workshops such as Working with Trauma, Working with Adult Clients Who Have Experienced Sexual Abuse (Workshops) and Working with Young People (Diploma). I am a group and individual supervisor at the Dartmoor Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy and a group supervisor for Counselling for Carers. I charge £50 per hour for supervision.
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.
