I am a qualified supervisor with a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision and I offer individual and/ or group supervision for counsellors and students. My approach is predominantly person centred but I also use other approaches such as C.B.T, T.A and Gestalt in my own practise so that my supervision is very inclusive. I feel that it is important to be able to support trainees with their own issues and with the issues that their clients bring. I also feel that it is very important for qualified counsellors to have regular supervision to keep themselves and their clients safe. Supervision for students can be a valuable learning tool as well as a way to access different experience and for qualified counsellors a safe place to discuss client work. I have also found from my own experience of supervision that it important to discuss any ethical and personal effects that may arise for a counsellor while they are working with a client I am a supervisor for C.A.S.Y which is counselling for children and young people which is based in Newark and the work is primarily with school age children. I also work with qualified counsellors that work for the Children's Bereavement Centre and I.S.A.S. in Newark which deals with Insest and sexual abuse. I do supervision in the private sector and have supervisee's both trained and qualified that work in various settings.In all cases I offer one and a half hours of supervision to the B.A.C.P guidelines. At the moment I am working towards my accreditation with the BACP and updating information on the new ethical guidelines.
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.
