I qualified as a supervisor by completing the "Diploma in Supervision" with "Safe Space for Counselling". This course is based upon Shohet and Hawkins, Seven Eyed approach. The course is recognised by the NCS (National Counselling Society) and carries the 'Advanced Specialist Training Status". I feel passionate to create a supportive environment built upon trust and equality enabling an open and honest professional relationship between supervisor and supervised. I believe supervision needs to be a supportive learning environment enabling presentation of your work, without the fear of inferiority or being judged potentially creating blocks. There is an additional focus on the counsellor's own self care. Supervision is available to counsellors, student counsellors, teachers, and support staff, NHS workers and other helping professions.
My Supervision fee is £60 for 1.5 hrs
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.
