Keeping clients at the centre of the work is key to my approach as a supervisor as I offer fellow counsellors and psychotherapists collaborative support in their client work, development and self- care. My original training was humanistic and I qualified as a supervisor in 2016, gaining the CPPD Diploma in Clinical Supervision. On- going training has meant that I now integrate ideas from other orientations such as CBT, attachment, and schema therapy into my humanistic approach. I am flexible in how I work and seek to build a supportive vibrant, and at times challenging supervisory relationship. I always enjoy the opportunity to spend time exploring and reflecting with a fellow counsellor. I have worked in schools, GP practices, charities and in private practice. I offer supervision on a one- to -one basis to both qualified and student counsellors. I facilitate group supervision for student counsellors and offer one - to- one supervision to safe- guarding officers in an FE setting. I have experience of teaching counselling at all levels and am currently a tutor on the CPCAB Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I am able to offer face to face supervision in a Covid- safe environment as well on- line supervision.
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.
