I offer clinical Supervision for qualified and trainee therapists, and those in the helping professions. My background is psychodynamic and my supervision training and practice is integrative. I have experience of supervising therapists and trainee therapists in private practice, in organisations, in hospital and hospice settings. I also supervise healthcare professionals, and those working in the ‘helping professions’.” Supervision offers support to you and your practice in numerous ways: promoting and maintaining safe, ethical and professional practice, the opportunity to collaborate with another professional to think creatively about your own practice, to reflect on practice and practical issues, to explore the impact of culture, class, ethnicity, power, gender and sexuality in our work, to develop clinical skills, to consider personal and professional boundaries, and to focus on the impact of working alongside individuals in distress, supporting you to find ways to work safely and effectively. I suggest an initial consultation, online, by ‘phone or in person. You can tell me about you and your practice, I can describe how I work, and we can see if we think we can work together. There is no charge at this stage.
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.
