I am a qualified integrative supervisor and offer supervision via video and telephone. I enjoy supporting other therapists in their work with clients by drawing on a range of therapeutic approaches. Above all, my aim is to create a safe and non-judgmental space for supervisees to feel able to bring any issues or concerns. Supervision in my view is a space for reflection and re-experiencing where we can freely and creatively explore challenges and celebrate achievements. Empathy, warmth and authenticity are key qualities of such an affirming supervisory relationship. I have been working as an integrative therapist for over a decade and have been an active participant in a number of different group and peer supervision settings during that time. In June 2018, I formalized my role as supervisor with the completion of the Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals and Groups with 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.
