Hi, I'm Allie. I'm an experienced integrative therapist with over twelve years of experience in clinical practice and ten years of experience working online. I work in private practice, as well as managing a service delivering online counselling to children and young people.
I am trained as an integrative 'relational' therapist, which means I have a particular interest in exploring the relational process 'in the room' between client and therapist. I believe that this requires a collaborative approach which is first and foremost supportive, enabling us to work together to explore challenges, but of course, also celebrate achievements in your clinical practice!
Having worked online for over a decade, I particularly enjoy providing supervision to people who deliver some of their work in this way. BACP recommends that you receive at least part of your supervision in the same format as you practice as a therapist, so I am happy to offer supervision in a range of mediums to reflect your current ways of working.
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.
