Supervisor offering Supervision of Individuals and GroupsMy work in supervision began informally as a mentor, but has developed to embrace a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision. Integratively trained, I offer Supervision to suit you and your counselling clients. I have experience in Supervising Counsellors from settings such as the NHS, University and the voluntary sector and have received feedback from Counsellors that I am approachable and able to contain the supervision process. “Supervision is recommended to anyone working in roles that require regularly giving or receiving emotionally challenging communications, or engaging in relationally complex and challenging roles.” (BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions 2018, section 73) and in these days of increased accountability this includes counsellors, psychotherapists, trainers and supervisors and extends across many other professions, including experience of supervising Youth Workers and Community Workers. I have experience of managing Counselling Services in the NHS and a Charitable Counselling Service, giving me insight into a wide range of counselling and supervisionary issues. TrainerI have provided training within a well-being community centre, delivering emotional health and life skill programmes, which have received excellent feedback and measurable outcomes.
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.
