I am a qualified Clinical Supervisor of Individuals and Groups having trained at The Grove Practice in London, taught at post-graduate level. I work with qualified and trainee Counsellors. Supervision supports protection of clients, is a reflective space providing insights for improvement in practice; helps to identify strengths and weaknesses; gains learning from peers; provides opportunity to keep up to date with professional developments; alerts ethical and professional issues; allows practitioners to measure impact of work on their lives and identify personal reactions to their professional work; is a forum to consider and hold tensions that emerge; offers a third person perspective from myself as supervisor who is not part of client system; provides welfare and better service to client; is a forum of accountability. In addition to working individually with you as a supervisee I work with groups, my supervision style is creative helping supervisees to explore in more depth the process and relationship with their clients. My Supervision role is to help you build on and improve your practice. Please call me to discuss further your Supervision requirements which will give you an opportunity to further get to know me and learn about my style of work with you.
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.
