My name is Sharon and I offer supervision to a diverse range of individuals and groups. Supervision is a means of delivering professional support to the practitioner to enable their continued learning and ownership of their work. As a trained supervisor I work to challenge, train, support and explore the practitioners work to promote best practice and safety for themselves and others.The qualities that I offer include: active listening, honesty, congruence, warm regard and respect. I specialise in working with women who have been affected by domestic and sexual abuse and trauma. I also have extensive experience of working with people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities. I have been practicing for over 8 years. My therapeutic approach is one that best suits the needs of the individual as I am trained to work with various therapeutic models including person centred and CBT. I have experience of working with individuals who presented with various issues such as stress, depression, bullying, post natal depression, child related issues, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sexual issues, crisis intervention, life changes, menopause, domestic violence/abuse, relationship challenges, bereavement and loss, anxiety, relaxation and stress management, personal and professional development, redundancy, retirement, low self-esteem, self-harm, identity issues, loss of purpose, assertiveness, panic attacks, trauma, disability, sexuality, and more.
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.
