I offer a safe, supportive, confidential and reflective environment where you can explore the dynamics of your therapeutic work with clients. I consider supervision to be an opportunity for us to work together to explore and support your practice, to offer you professional feedback, validation and insight. The process of supervision involves: Focus on our supervison as a paralel process to the therapy process. Reflection on the content of the therapy sessions. Exploration of the strategies and interventions used by you. Focus on yours and my counter-transference. Exploreation of the therapy dynamics and therapeutic relationship. Focus on the wider context such as the organisation you are working within.
Supervision is a professional requirement for counsellors. It is required to protect clients and provided counsellors with a space to reflect on their practice. I currently offer remote sessions of either an hour of and hour and a half depending on your need or case load.
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.
