I am a warm, down-to-earth integrative/pluralistic online supervisor. My core models are person-centred and psychodynamic. I qualified as a counsellor in 2010 (University of Edinburgh) and as a supervisor in 2022 (Counselling Tutor). I worked in the NHS for a decade, have had my own private practice for 12 years and have worked in a wide variety of organisations. I have worked with a wide range of clients and issues in that time. I can supervise adult individual and couples work giving experience in both. I love working with trainee counsellors up to very experienced counsellors, I just ask that you value supervision as much as I do as a safe place to explore your client work from every angle, to keep developing your skills and seek support in the sometimes work we do which can be both amazing and challenging.
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.
