I see supervision as a collaborative, professional relationship which helps to promote learning, personal and professional development, self care and ethical practice. I seek to provide a safe and informative environment offering a safe space in which to explore and make sense of your work and feelings, a place to explore your own thoughts and feelings about client work and yourself within the process. I offer help and encouragement, develop reflective practice, explore transference, counter-transference and projection, develop an understanding of skills and theory whilst enhancing your own internal supervisor. I bring the breadth of my counselling experience having worked for the past 10 years with both primary and secondary school children,together with counselling families and adults with a charity who specialise in issues such as addictions, anxiety, bereavement and loss, depression, relationships and stress, as well as running my own private practice.I offer face to face, Skype, Zoom, Facetime and telephone supervision. The length of each session will depend on the supervisees case load 1.5 to 2 hours. For trainee counsellors 1 hour sessions are also available at a reduced rate of £35.
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.
