I am a qualified supervisor with a BACP-endorsed Diploma in Counselling Supervision offering supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors. I am a member of the Supervisors' Network for both Leeds Beckett University and The University of Leeds. As a counsellor I work relationally and carry this through to my supervision work. For me supervision is about creating the right environment to help supervisees to grow and develop as competent, confident, creative and ethical practitioners. I have experience of providing individual and group supervision to counsellors. I also have experience of providing supervision to safeguarding and student support services staff in a FE/HE college. If you would like to meet to explore the possibility of our working together in supervision please contact me to arrange an initial session for which I do not charge.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
