I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision from Counselling Xtra (in Nottingham). As a Supervisor, I aim to offer an environment in which supervisees feel free and supported to explore all that is relevant in their work as a counsellor.
This may include: your clients and the issues they are bringing to sessions; your counsellor/client relationships; the context in which counselling is taking place; your wellbeing, competence and development; situations in your own life that you feel could be impacting on your practice; and any thoughts/concerns/comments on your supervisory relationship. Supervision may also involve at times: an exploration of counselling theory with links to practice; examining ethical issues; identifying development needs or the need for personal counselling; and celebrating success.
As a humanistic practitioner, the relationship is fundamental to me, and my priority is to develop open, honest, and trusting relationships with supervisees. I see supervision as a space for review, reflection and development. I value and recognise the different contexts (social, cultural, and personal) in which we all live our lives and how this may impact upon your practice and your clients.
I charge £50 per hour.
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.
