Supervision details

Integrative Supervision I am a qualified Supervisor and I have a Diploma in Integrative Supervision. Supervision Model Integrative psychotherapy describes a psychotherapeutic approach in which elements from different schools of psychotherapy may be used. The generic term, integrative psychotherapy, can be used to describe any multi-modal approach which combines therapies. What is Supervision? Supervision is a working alliance between two professionals where supervisees offer an account of their work, reflect on it, receive feedback, and receive guidance if appropriate.  The object of this alliance is to enable the worker to gain in ethical competency, confidence and creativity as to give the best possible services to clients. Supervision helps to reduce the risk of serious oversight and helps the therapist concerned to reflect on their own feelings, thoughts, behaviour and general approach with the client. Supervision involves at least four elements: (1) The Supervisor, (2) The Supervisee/Therapist, (3) The Client and (4) a work context. Choice of Supervisor For any supervisee the choice of supervisor is critical. It is important that the supervisee seeks out a supervisor who will respect them, will not judge them and will relate to them with what Carl Rogers called ‘unconditional positive regard’. As a supervisor I believe the primary value of supervision comes from having a safe and supportive environment in which the supervisee can build on their own skills and insights as a practitioner, and in which the supervisee can reflect on any aspect of their profession and their client relationships. Safe practice is often demonstrated professionally through the compliance of fulfilling formal guidelines formulated by organizations such as the BACP’s and BABCP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Providing a secure environment for where the supervision is held is important because it provides a safe container for the supervisee.  My residential clinic is a comfortable warm room, clean and uncluttered, and a private space that’s uninterrupted and where the supervisee can feel valued and supported.   Attendance The supervisee needs to attend 1.5 hours of supervision per month in accordance with accreditation compliance and they can be held weekly, fortnightly or monthly.  Fees Supervision                    Per Session (1hr)             Monthly (1.5hrs)Qualified Therapist               £60.00                            £90.00     

BACP
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.

BABCP
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)

The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists. BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
