Supervision details

Counsellors and Psychotherapists are required to have supervision every month for them to practice ethically and competently. This work will always be with a more experienced psychotherapist and trained supervisor, who will enable you to review your practice with clients. Supervision will focus on the interactions between supervisor, counsellor and client. 

The aim is to enhance best practice, build on strengths and address developmental areas. Supervision will support and enhance the individual’s professional and organisational objectives which may include: following best practice, adhering to an ethical framework, accountability, personal support and growth, and continual professional development. All of this is based on confidentiality.

My supervision model is based on Shohet and Hawkins’ work described in their book – ‘Supervision in the helping professions’ (2012). They refer to the … the ‘seven eyes’ which describe the seven different ways of looking at the client presentation and related relationships. 

THE SEVEN EYES FOCUS ON:
Client details – understanding context
Supervisee’s interventions
Client–supervisee relationship
Supervisee’s own experiences of being with the client
Supervisor–supervisee relationship
Supervisor’s own reflections
Wider context of the work

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
