I am an approved supervisor for The National Counselling Society. I believe that effective supervision is the key to building an effective workforce and that high quality supervision is one of the most important drivers in ensuring positive outcomes for people who use social care and children's services. Having founded a charity that works with the most vulnerable in society and developing a team of multi-disciplinary practitioners I have extensive experience in providing supervision in the helping professions and offer space to explore your practice, without fear of judgement, in a containing enabling and empowering environment.Supervision of practice is vital firstly, to benefit your clients; to ensure they are enabled and empowered, and secondly, to develop your competence, confidence and ethical practice.I also provide support and guidance through Professional Conduct Procedures.
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.
