I am a qualified and experienced supervisor. I work creatively with supervisees and aim for them to reflect on the work they do with clients in a supportive and encouraging environment. I respect the work of my supervisees and work alongside them , rather then instructing them. I work hard to build an open and respectful relationship with them, where I can challenge them and they feel they can challenge me. Supervision is about learning, development, understanding and it is a unique and powerful process. One that is key in the work we do as therapists. For me it is so important to focus on the supervisee, their feelings, experiences and personal development ,while also understanding the client work that they are doing. I work individually and I run supervision groups. My training was all done with CASCADE. (CASCADE Diploma in the Art and Craft of Individual and Group Supervision)
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.
