I am a Qualified Relational Supervisor and have been practicing as a therapist for 25 years. I have an Advanced Diploma in Relational Supervision from Severn Talking Therapy. I offer supervision for counsellors working with individuals and couples and non-managerial supervision for workers within organisations. I believe that the relationship with our clients is central to the therapeutic process and in the relationship within supervision is also central; to create a space where it is safe to explore issues within our work and our personal and professional development. In addition to my counselling experience I worked for 30 years in the 3rd Sector with a variety of supervisory and managerial roles with both employees and volunteers and bring to the supervisory role an understanding of organisational dynamics. I can work with individuals or groups/organisations. I have also had 13 years experience of working with the EAP Sector. I am currently supervisor for a number of counsellors in local counselling organisations and providing non-managerial supervision for non-counsellors within the 3rd sector. I offer supervision online currently. Fees: £60 for 1 hour £90 for 1.5 Hours. I can offer reduced fees to student counsellors and counsellors just starting out in private practice.
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.
