I have been supervising Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Supervisors and other Professionals in the helping professions for more than 10 years. This has been in both the Private Practice setting and within a BACP Accredited Counselling. I have experience of managing and supervising Counsellors from a range of modalities including, but not limited to: Integrative, Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural and Transactional Analysis. I have also had the privilege of working with Counsellors practising at different stages in their development, from those in training, offering counselling for the first time in voluntary placements, to highly qualified and experienced practitioners working either with extremely challenging caseloads or in challenging settings e.g. within Prison Services. Over the years I have supported a number of Counsellors in their successful accreditation with BACP by providing mentoring through the process and by reviewing applications before submission. If you require short-term supervision to support you through this process please get in touch. If you should like to discuss your Supervision requirements with me further I should be very happy to hear from you.
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).
