I supervise professionals and trainees not exclusively to the counselling profession. Professionals such as social workers, teachers, GP's, police, complimentary therapists, business and work-place situations, nurses, company owners etc, all can benefit from professional supervision.
I use the double matrix or the seven-eyed supervisor model which means: examining the dynamics of the range of relationships involved in the situation; focusing down on the minutia of the process; and include the impact the wider context (or organisational context) places on the situation. My aim is work developmentally, supporting you to grow and develop as a professional, guiding you to make decisions that feel right for you.
In the counselling arena, I work with fully trained or trainee counsellors - I also focus on supporting you to develop as a practitioner and specifically with trainees who may want or need particular focus such as skills development, applying specific interventions or need theoretical input to gain some clinical perspective.
Working relationally and using the seven-eyed supervisor model, I provide Integrative supervision drawing on the three core theories of counselling and psychotherapy: - Humanistic, Psychodynamic and CBT.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
