I offer supervision to trainee, newly qualified and more experienced counsellors. I can offer supervision to therapists working with any, or all, of the following client groups: young people, individuals, couples and families. I feel that it is important to offer a warm, respectful and safe environment so that you can feel supported in your work with your clients. I believe, strongly, that supervision is a mutual and collaborative process. We can work together as you develop your practice with clients. As a supervisor and member of the BACP, I have a responsibility to see that all practice with clients meets the standards of their Ethical Framework. Although my training is in systemic and psychodynamic therapy, I work, also, with supervisees from other theoretical approaches.
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.
