I am a supervisor currently completing a UKCP accredited post graduate diploma in supervision, with the training organisation ReVision which is accredited by both BACP and UKCP. On completion of my diploma I will be placed on the UKCP register of accredited supervisors. My training is Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapy, UKCP register, BACP registered and accredited. I am interested in soulful embodiment and radical responsibility. Soul is a transpersonal understanding of the field dynamics of consciousness, this theoretical frame asks I trust that all events and experiences can be opportunities for meaning making. In particular soul is found in what limits, slows, frustrates, obstructs and is unwanted. If we can take our time these experiences are an invitation into deeper relating, understanding and compassion. Often this calls for more embodiment, trusting our instinctive, or gut knowing, and bearing mindfully with our direct experience. This requires us to describe phenomena without reaching for premature explanations, and staying with what-is becomes the creative ground for meaning making. I am interested in archetypal psychotherapy and by radically staying with the sense within each character in a story (personal/historical/mythic). By deeply inhabiting each character within their own realm we are naturally confronted with a radical responsibility for intentions, actions and consequences. I see therapeutic relating as intersubjective, and honest heartfelt relating as the ground of significant creative healing. I understand difference and diversity through a the frame of intersectionality, and the systemic nature of prejudice and unconscious bias. I am particularly interested in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity; queer spirituality; and supporting the anti-racism movement through white affinity groups. This would suit psychotherapeutic counsellors and trainees, individual 1-1 supervision, a session of one hour costs £65
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.
