My supervisory approach is working with a predominately person-centred approach to supervision helping you to support your clients in a safe and professional way.
In terms of supervision experience, I currently supervise bereavement volunteers for the national bereavement charity Cruse and since 2017 supervising counsellors on placement (trainee and qualified) with the children's mental health charity Place2Be.
Further to my on-the-job experience as a supervisor, I completed my training for a Level 6 diploma with Place2Be and accredited by the CPCAB. My training has been influenced using Shohet & Hawkins 'Seven-eyed Model of Supervision' but I am also influenced by the work of the chartered counselling psychologist Michael Carroll.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
