Supervision details

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Clinical Supervision, Diploma in Person Centred therapy and a Advance Post Diploma Certificate in Person Centred Couples Counselling.  My supervision practice is informed and supported by my extensive experience as a therapist, a key-worker and as manager of volunteer and paid counsellors, for whom I provided clinical and case-management support. I have worked as a mental and sexual health counsellor and as a counselling manager supporting people with addictions and people from the LGBT communities. This included a focus on those from Black and minority ethnic communities and people affected by HIV/AIDS. I presently run supervision groups at various third sector organisations across London. I offer clinical supervision to individuals, groups, trainees and experienced practising therapists. Supervision sessions will be led by you and focus on the issues and challenges you bring to the session. Whether you need to reflect on your work with a particular client, feel stuck in your approaches, or need feedback on and support with an essay or case study, regular clinical supervision is a vital support to all counsellors and therapists.

Accreditation support

Finding the accreditation process daunting? Feeling stuck on a criteria? Been deferred, or just need support in starting? Want someone to discuss the process with?, Then I may be able to help.

Deciding to train as a therapist may be a calling. You may feel need to help others, or it might simply be a career choice. You have may have spent countless hours and expense on CPD, self-development and personal therapy and now it feels like you have to jump through the further hoop of accreditation.

Accreditation should not be seen as a chore. It will be an opportunity for you to demonstrate to your employer, the general public, your peers and yourself that you able to articulate you knowledge and skill and work ethically for clients and the profession as a whole.

Do not take this step lightly. As stated on the BACP website, accreditation is not for newly qualified counsellors but for those with experience in the field.

BACP requires a minimum of 450 client hours to start your accreditation. In my experience of supporting those that have gone through this process just having these hours sometimes is not enough. Before you begin accreditation you may want to consider the following questions:

  • ·       Are you willing to commit to the time needed to complete this?
  • ·       Do you have others in and out of the profession able to offer you the emotional and practical support you will need?
  • ·       This process requires you to look at yourself as a therapist and explain what you do and the reasons for doing it. Do you feel able to do this?
  • ·       Are you able to articulate and explore the model/s of therapy you use? And if the models you use now are different to those you trained in can you explain that journey?

Having been through this process myself and supported numerous others going through it, I have the knowledge and experience to help you through to completion.

My initial training was in a Person Centred Approach. I am now an integrative trained counselling supervisor and therapist. I am also a qualified couples counsellor.

I cannot guarantee that you will pass but I will offer you the support you need to get through this process successfully.

If you need support in starting, or just want to discuss the process please contact me.

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.
