I work as an Integrative Supervisor and work within the ethical guidelines for good practice for BACP and the National Counselling Society. I have over 25 years of running groups and individual supervision. For me it is important the supervisee comes to me with with their client/supervisor work feeling I will help them in a Formative, Supportive/Caring and Educational way. As well as working integratively I teach in supervision when necessary, how to work with Genograms, art work, objects, visualisations, Inner Child work/CBT, Co-dependency etc., as and when needed for the ciient's best interest, to aid their supervisee client work.
I believe my job is to help the supervisee's grow in their professional development, working with them within their ethics and guidelines of the professional body they belong to. I have also worked with individual companies who wanted supervision for their staff who were not in the therapy world, very often teaching Communication/Assertion skills/Anger/Stress Management.
I enjoy supervision so that supervisee's can be honest in the room with me about their work, knowing that I will guide and help them all I can, so they can look forward to our work together feeling that they have got growth and learning from supervision
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.
