Supervision offers and forms a vital component of therapeutic work and relationship. A place and time for you to be able to bring and reflect on client work, your wellbeing and your learning. I am passionate about supervision and welcome all aspects of your work, the work you feel that has gone well, and the aspects of your work you are unsure of. The growing edges of experience and competency can be found in all aspects of therapeutic work. I draw upon different models of supervision, 7 Eyed supervision model, the Cyclical model, Inskipp and Proctor plus over 12 years of therapeutic, supervisory and personal experience and reflection. I have experience of working alongside and with student counsellor/psychotherapist to the more experienced practitioner. I believe that cultivating a safe, collaborative and engaging space is key to a good and sound working relationship. I feel it is important that the role of the supervisor is to be alongside you in your work; to listen, to encourage, to challenge and support. If you would like to meet or speak about supervision and how we might be able to work with each other then please do get in touch. I am available in Stroud and Bristol - look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to have a look at my website. http://www.counsellingwithkirsti.com/supervision.html
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
