Supervision details

My aim in providing Supervision is to create an environment that is safe enough to explore every aspect of Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Practice. An environment where doubts and uncertainties can be addressed and creative approaches can be explored. I am passionate about Supervision as an essential part of ensuring the wellbeing of the practitioner and therefore supporting them to be available for whatever a client needs to bring into their work. I have also been the Clinical Director for a Counselling service and so have experienced in the Supervisory and practical challenges for running a service. 

BACP
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.
