As your supervisor, my job is to help you carry out your role of a good psychotherapist to your clients/patients. By offering you a relational and boundaried supervisory relationship, I help you to offer therapeutic containment to your clients. If you feel safe exploring your work in our relationship, your clients will feel more able to speak about the stuff of their soul to you.
I have significant experience of psychotherapy training and supervision and skills gained through supervising professionals in psychiatry, running a counselling service and offering training. My understanding derives mainly from psychodynamic perspectives with a solid Rogerian base. My training in supervision is through WPF. My fees for supervision are £60.
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
