What I bring to the table as a Supervisor is tremendous experience as a Senior Counsellor and CBT therapist; having worked within NHS Adult Mental Health, University Counsellor, MacMillan Cancer and Bereavement and Lancashire MIND. BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (2016): “Supervision is essential to how practitioners sustain good practice throughout their working life. Supervision provides practitioners with regular and ongoing opportunities to reflect in depth about all aspects of their practice in order to work as effectively, safely and ethically as possible. Supervision also sustains the personal resourcefulness required to undertake the work. Good supervision is much more than case management. It includes working in depth on the relationships between practitioner and client in order to work towards desired outcomes and positive effects. This requires adequate levels of privacy, safety and containment for the supervisee to undertake this work. Therefore a substantial part or preferably all of supervision needs to be independent of line management.” (Sections 50, 51) I encourage my supervisees to explore not only casework but factors that may impact upon their practice, such as work and personal stressors. I offer an integrative approach, to facilitate reflection and promote fresh insight. I aim to develop my supervisees by providing a balance of support, challenge and growth - helping to identify choices and responsibilities, whilst recognising boundaries and limitations.My mission is to educate, empower and inspire you.I am based in Bolton (close to Bolton School) in a warm and comfortable setting. My fees for qualified therapists are £50.00 per hour and half session. I offer a special rate to students.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
