Supervision details

Working in the caring professions means that, as practitioners, we all need help and support at some time. BACP guidelines state that counsellors should undertake 1.5 hours of supervision per month.Further information for counsellors and sex therapists...Effective counselling relies heavily on the emotional health and development of the counsellor or therapist and supervision helps to maintain this. Supervision helps to enhance the skills of the supervisee, leading to improved outcomes with the client. I work in a structured, integrative, way using cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic and systemic theories.But it's not just for counsellors...All practitioners working in the helping or caring professions - from staff who work in hospices and care homes to nurses and teachers for example - can benefit from regular supervision. Supervision is based on development and aims to help the supervisee reflect on all dimension of his/her practice within their profession. It is not 'management support', rather a space to help maintain practitioner wellbeing.What next...If you are looking for a clinical supervisor to help support you and develop your skills, then please give me a call on 07500 716 801 or email julie@newbeginningstherapy.org.uk.

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.
