I offer Clinical Supervision. My approach is Person Centred, and is very much lead by the supervisee.However, if as a supervisee you want or need more direction or challenge then this is where the process can also be beneficial. I see Supervision as is like being the third person in the room listening & observing what is shared between client and counsellor. A way of keeping on track, a process of consideration or looking at things from a different prospective which is really useful if we get bogged down occasionally.Is it transference or counter transference? we are experiencing, sometimes were not even aware what a client can leave us with. Is it projection that makes us hit a sticky patch. Or is it just reassurance we need that we are being the best we can be for our clients.
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.
