I am an experienced, BACP Senior Accredited, Person Centred Counsellor and qualified Supervisor. I am based at Brighton’s Seven Dials and Burgess Hill and charge £60 per supervision hour. If you’re interested or have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.
As a Person Centred therapist my approach to supervision is to work with you in a supportive and collaborative way, providing a safe space for you to explore and grow. I want to empower you to connect with your capacity and potential, and to trust your own sense of right ways for you to practice. I have a long standing commitment to Person Centred values and as such I believe that it is not my place to act as an expert in relation to you or your client. I will seek to understand how your client work is from your point of view.
I would invite you to use the relational space within our supervision: How might meeting as two humans, open to the other’s humanness, enrich our supervision time and our work with clients? I am interested in genuine human connection and am open to being affected by and learning from my supervisees also.
I am keen to work with issues around how diversity affects our work: How might differences in age, ethnicity, gender identity, ability, sexuality affect the work and the relationship between counsellor and client, supervisor and supervisee? It is important to me to strive to be accessible to people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
My Focusing practice is a big part of my life. During supervision I may invite you to listen to any subtle body senses you have that may contain information about your work with clients, your feelings and needs. In order to connect with ourselves, our supervision needs and our inner knowing about a right course of action it may be helpful to pause or slow down, to get a sense of the grounded body and its resources.
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.
