Supervision details

I have been a counsellor for several years now, I also have a degree in teaching. The supervision process intrigues me immensely and meets my hyper focus need. How this benefits you is you will have a supervisor that is stimulated and riveted by the supervision process. This field of counselling has been my passion ever since I discovered it, I am marvelled and in awe by the miraculous presentation of people in their day to day lives. I am existential at my core but have a wide range of theoretical knowledge that i have an ability to apply to the workings of this to people and their lives almost as second nature. I have a strong empathy for the process particularly to those that fear their work being scrutinised. I believe this quote by Yarleth Benson sums up what the supervision process can feel like particularly in the early days of our careers. “The supervisee is required to exhibit and expose her work, with the inevitable background fear that it is her very self that is being scrutinized and judged. Similarly the supervisor has to balance precariously between avoiding injurious criticism and being inappropriately therapeutic.” With this in mind you can be assured that you will never be judged, think of our relationship as viewing human beings hand in hand with the view to helping along therapeutic change. There is no right and wrong just different ways of being. If you are looking for a supervisor to work in this way then get in touch.

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.
