I am a qualified clinical supervisor offering supervision to counsellors, trainee counsellors, other therapists and mental health professionals. I work from a person-centred foundation, incorporating other models of supervision to enhance the process when these might be helpful. I believe my responsibility as your supervisor is to offer a supportive, non-judgemental and encouraging space for you to examine your therapeutic relationships with clients, explore your own personal ethical boundaries in relation to your professional ethical framework and facilitate you to come to decisions that feel right for you and your clients. As a supervisee this supports you to work ethically, safely and within your competencies. I am a member of BACP and work within their Ethical Framework to ensure my own professional standards and ethical practices. I have been a counsellor in the third sector and in private practice and have worked with adults and young people of all genders with wide-ranging presenting issues. I am passionate about counselling and about facilitating other therapists to grow and develop in their practice. If you would like to discuss supervision with me please contact me to arrange an initial call or meeting.
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.
