Finding the right match for a supervisor is an important step. As a fully qualified supervisor my aim is to provide helpful supervision to both psychodynamic and integrative therapists. Working with both psychodynamic counselling and counselling which is more supportive or solution-focused, although I always encourage a collaborative endeavour to understand your clients better and think about their unconscious experience and how it manifests between you.
My supervision training was at the Society of Analytic Psychology (Diploma in Psychodynamic Supervision). I have a natural enthusiasm for psychodynamic understanding and my practice tends to be containing in nature, and educational where helpful. I seek to hold a supervisory space that encourages freedom of thought and feeling in the service of deepening our knowledge of your clients. I can offer sessions in person or online, and normally on a weekly or fortnightly basis. My standard supervision fee is from £70.
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.
