I offer an integrative supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists designed to underpin and promote reflective and informed practice. I use Hawkins and Shohets' seven eyed model of supervision. This takes in
focus on the client focus on the therapist’s interventions focus on the client-therapist relationship focus on the therapist’s process focus on the therapist-supervisor relationship focus on the supervisor’s process focus on the wider context.
In my own practice, I aim to bring together
psychoanalytic insights transactional analysis some existentialism and CBT a humanistic approach.
All elements of this integration can be brought to bear both on an understanding of my supervisee’s client and on the supervision itself. It is not essential for a supervisee to use the same integration as myself. This will be a ‘person-centred' supervision which starts with an analysis of the skills and knowledge which the supervisee needs to develop initially and throughout, and will emphasise proper organisation and administration. I hold the Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals and Groups awarded by The Grove.
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.
