I am currently in training as a Supervisor and as such am willing to offer reduced rates at least whilst I am training and gaining my hours which is likely to take us through to the beginning of Autumn next year. Therefore, I am offering a starting rate of £40 for the hour, rising to £45 once I complete my course and £50 once I receive my certificate. An hour and a half would reflect these fees accordingly, being an additional half the fee paid for the hour.
My core model is Psychodynamic but I also completed a top-up degree in Integrative Counselling which of course means I do have more in my toolbox to draw upon when appropriate.
Over the years I have developed in style and would say now I work in a person centred way, but with psychodynamic influences.
When it feels appropriate, I do employ other models and theories to my practice. I often use Attachment based therapy, Person Centred, Gestalt and CBT.
I have some availability most days during the day, but always happy to have a chat about what might work for us both.
I will be taking time off over Christmas from 21st December 2023 returning to practice from 2nd January 2024.
I also have a break coming up mid February for two weeks but with supervision being monthly generally, I am sure none of this needs to impact too much.
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.
