My supervision career began in 2007 and I completed a 2 year Person-centred supervision diploma at Temenos in Sheffield in 2009.I worked for Nottinghamshire County Council Young People's Counselling Team, as an organisational supervisor for 4 years from 2007 to 2011, and now work independenly in private practice. I supervise a large number of behaviour and pastoral support staff for a large secondary school and am agency supervisor for Talkzone young people's counselling service in Worksop.I have varied and extensive experience of supervising qualified and trainee counsellors as well as health and education professionals. I offer individual and group supervision. My work with supervising therapists in agencies includes: Rape Crisis, Incest and Sexual Abuse (ISAS), domestic violence, probation and prison service (Local Authority), Education, Primary Care Trust, bereavement and hospice work, MIND and Women's Aid.Person-Centred supervision encompasses the philosophy and theory of person-centred therapeutic practice. I feel passionately that this style of supervision encourages the therapist to be open, and confident in bringing all aspects of themselves and their work to supervision. I know how vital it is to find a supervisor you are able to be completely honest and open with and who will support you in a way that enables you to develop your own individual style of working. I encourage those seeking a supervisor to meet several people before they make a final decision - it's really important you find the right person.Please give me a call if you would like to discuss my approach further to visit my website www.jgcounselling.co.uk
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.
