Supervision details

I have been a counsellor for 12 years and recently undertook the training to become a developmental supervisor, and qualified in March 2021.  My many years of practice in different areas of counselling has been wonderfully supported by excellent supervision. For me Supervision is about providing a warm and facilitative relationship which can help to support you in the often complex work we do in the therapy professions.  Supervision can support you to develop your learning and your professional career.  The supervisory relationship between supervisor and supervisee is a safe, confidential and unique space within which deep reflection about your clinical work, your own fears, doubts, and personal concerns can be explored.  Supervision is also a learning space to support your professional development as you progress through your career.   For me being able to provide a facilitative supervision relationship for others in counselling and other care professions, is the highlight of my career to date, and feel I can offer the same high level of supervision, that I have always received. 

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.
