I am BACP accredited counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, with a supervision qualification accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). My counselling and psychotherapy training has involved a range of modalities including integrative, solution focused, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, internal family systems, eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness, and somatic approaches. Hence my model of supervision is best described as integrative. My clinical practice is both trauma, and attachment informed, which consequently informs the model of supervision I offer. I believe that effective supervision is incredibly important for all clinicians, to assist us in working safely and competently, whilst promoting reflective practice and self-care. Supervision is also a space and process that I enjoy very much, both as a supervisor and supervisee, in addition to finding it incredibly useful for continued professional and personal development. I am also experienced in supervising non-therapy trained professionals such as service/organisation managers, project workers, social workers and teaching staff. I also offer a free initial 30 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs, get a feel for each other, and for you to decide whether or not you would like to work together. My online supervision fee is: £60 per hour
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.
