I provide supervision to both trainee and qualified counsellors. I have worked as a Supervisor for 15 years and have assisted several counsellors in gaining their BACP accreditation. I offer supervision to those working within a humanistic and integrative model of therapy. I have a busy private practice working with adult clients and run a school counselling service employing 11 youth counsellors with 13 schools. The particular field that I have many years’ experience in counselling and supervision practice is with those working with children and young people within schools and educational institutes. I am the clinical supervisor offering individual and group supervision at a rape crisis centre. I also worked as the clinical lead at a cancer charity. I have supervised counsellor’s working in education and several other youth establishments.
I am passionate about therapists set up their own private practice within my supervision role.
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.
