I offer one to one and small group supervision and I also offer outdoor supervision for some practitioners who have had training in outdoor therapy. My journey as a counsellor came through the world of education and an initial career working as a teacher so I have had a lifelong commitment to the importance of lifelong learning and reflective practice. I bring that passion to my supervision work which I see as a developmental and relational conversation in a safe, supportive and empathic learning environment for the supervisee. My therapeutic orientation is in person centred and emotion focused therapy and I bring that lens to my supervision work including some maps and models from supervision theory (Hawkins & Shohet 2007) I have an Advanced Certificate in Supervision and have subsequently done further training with Robin Shohet.
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.
