Do you need to increase your supervision hours? Do you need non-placement, unbiased, neutral supervision where you can offload your woes and share your hopes about the realities of the profession? Do you need assistance with case studies, viva preparation or accreditation? Or have your 'failed' your case study and require help re-drafting your work? Perhaps you have qualified, and are contemplating private practice and now need help with your vision to create an ethical, unique private practice? If so, then supervision with Keeley would be of great value to you. Times have changed drastically and the counselling field is often lagging behind. Post qualification can be a tricky time as the path for making a living from our vocation is not always clear. Sustaining your placement hours can be helpful, but did you train this long to continue to work for free? In addition, if you are a trainee navigating the counselling field you may be discovering that it is not a smooth walk. In addition to having to contend with your placement demands (and politics), clients, essays, personal therapy, supervision and the demands of attending your course, you may also be dealing with the ripple effects that training can have on your personal life especially your relationships. Walking the path to becoming a therapist (and staying a therapist) is not an easy one, but with the right support it can be done. Supervision is an essential requirement for all therapists as it enables you to work with clients in a safe, ethical way. In addition, having independent supervision away from your placement and training institute, can be empowering as it can provide you with a much needed safe-space to vent your frustrations, particularly about the many bureaucratic processes that can dampen your training experience. Group supervision also available Group supervision can be an important factor in speeding up your learning process. It can provide a variety of insights from diverse backgrounds as well as broadening your thinking in refreshing new ways and expanding your professional network. Time and date can be arranged to suit your group. Weekends and weekday evenings also available.
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).
