I completed a post graduate qualification in clinical supervision at Salford University in 2004; and although the training was in the psycho-dynamic model: over the years I have continued with professional development and can provide supervision from an integrative approach. As I regularly work with trainee counsellor's who are on person centered courses; I am often asked to provide supervision from a person centered modality; which i am happy to do as my original counselling training was in person centered. I believe that supervision is a collaborative process and that the relationship between supervisor and counsellor is a crucial element. Experience Over the last 15 years I have provided clinical supervision for placements; trainee counsellor's; experienced counsellor's and specialist support staff who work in various settings including voluntary sector counselling agencies; Universities; NHS; Mediation Kirklees; Victim Support; Dewsbury and Bradford College and private companies. I worked within the NHS for over 12 years providing counselling for clients who presented a range of issues including; depression; anxiety; health adjustment; loss; bereavement; trauma; low self esteem; lack of confidence; abuse issues; self harm; stress; illness; and anger issues. in addition i provided supervision and mentoring for trainee counsellor's I have over 30 years experience of working with the issues of sexual; domestic and psychological abuse within a number of specialist counselling agencies; where in later years a key aspect of my role as clinical lead was to provide clinical supervision to trainee and experienced counsellor's. Within my role as clinical supervisor for Bradford Counselling Service myself and co-worker coordinated and provided supervision for all of the counselling staff both qualified and trainees; who worked from a range of modalities including person centred; CBT; pyschodynamic and integrated. I currently supervise: Qualified counsellor's who work with a range of issues. Trainee counsellor's and placements. My specialist area of work is abuse and trauma; however I have a sound range of experience providing supervision to practitioners who work with a wide range of issues. I offer one to one supervision and group supervision. As well as face to face I also provide supervision via webcam on request My supervision fee is £60.00 per hour and I offer a reduced rate for trainees.
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).
