Quality work cannot be sustained alone. To withstand the quality of care offered to clients, the therapists need ongoing clinical supervision. As a supervisor I support my supervisees to explore their ‘illusions, delusions and collusions’ that could develop while responding to complex cases. Competent therapists can be reduced to severe doubts about themselves and their abilities to function in their work through absorbing distress, dis-ease and disturbance from the clients. The supervisor’s role is not just to reassure the supervisee but to allow the emotional disturbance to be felt within the safe setting of the supervisory relationship, where it can be survived, reflected upon and learnt from. I have been supervising and training therapists for the last 15 years. I offer Special rates for trainee therapists.
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.
