Supervision details

Considering a Counselling Training is a big step with many things to consider. Financial, emotional, personal, practical.  Much of this can only be learnt when you have already commited to a particular course.    1 or 2 sessions of discussion about you and your motivations can be helpful to ensure you make more informed choices. We could make sure you are aware of the following: - The level of commitment and the demands on you - Choosing the right modality/type of training - What you want out of this course now and in the future - Different routes through training. - Trainings that are safer bets and trainings that might need to be thought about in more detail - The balance between Theory and Experiential - When you gain the qualification what will you actually be able to do and not do?

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.
