I am a qualified supervisor working with groups and individuals and have considerable experience working with students as well as qualified practitioners. My role as a supervisor is to support and enable you to develop and be the therapist you want to be. I have enhanced understanding of working with children/young people as well as adult work. I am committed to working ethically and have supported a number of supervisees with their accreditation process. I keep my knowledge base up to date with CPD and keep abreast of BACP changes and believe in the power of therapy for change. I work experientially using play and art based process as well as with the spoken word and feel this explores both client/counsellor process that deepens understanding and knowledge of self and how you relate to your client’s. I have 9 years’ experience of supporting supervisees who work with clients who have experienced sexual abuse and trauma. I work with the individual and with small groups. I have considerable experience of working with trainees as I have supervised and taught students to diploma level and can support you around criteria and relating your theory to practise.
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).
