I am a consultant clinical supervisor for the University of South Wales, successfully functioning within a relational model, utilising the Seven Eyed Model of Hawkins & Shohets, which encompasses the whole of my supervisee's well-being and enabling positive support for their client groups.I am mindful that each supervisee is at a distinct level of learning, so it is of paramount importance that I utilise the working alliance and deliver an appropriate platform for supervisees to engage in the various stages of formative, normative and restorative themes to enhance their education in the field of counselling.I work creatively to enhance supervisees experiences of utilising different skills and techniques with children, young people and adults; which allows a deeper insight into presenting issues.
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.
