As in my role as a therapist, I strongly believe that the relationship between the supervisor and supervisee is fundamental to the work we do together. The word "supervisor" can often hold connotations of being overseen or managed but I believe the relational model of supervision both supports best practice and facilitates space for growth, self-discovery and new insights into the work that you do as a practitioner.
I have experience of working with trainee supervisees and have always focused on creating an environment that stimulates learning, creativity, growth and curiosity as well as a relationship that feels safe, holding, supportive and non-judgmental - whatever difficulties that may (and do) arise in the therapeutic work that we undertake with our clients.
I know from experience that it is a difficult task to find the right supervisor to work with. For that reason, I offer a free 30 minute session, either on line or face to face, to discuss what you might need from supervision and to see whether I am the right person for you to work with. So please get in touch.
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.
