PROFESSIONAL SUPERVISIONAs an Accredited BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist and qualified clinical supervisor; I provide a collaborative process between two or more practitioners of the same or different professions. This process encourages the development of professional skills and enhances the quality of patient care through the implementation of an evidence-based approach to maintaining standards in practice. These standards are maintained through various methods of evaluation, discussion around specific patient incidents or interventions using elements of reflection to inform the discussion. As an integrative therapist, my focus is upon CBP/CBT and EMDR, as my primary mode in delivery of service. Presently working within a private & corporate setting as an EAP provider. My business background is invaluable in building a successful practice. Resolving workplace conflict and disputes via mediation, being particular areas of interest and development.I offer individual supervision sessions, but have a preference towards offering two hour group supervision sessions to a cohort of not more than four counsellors. As I believe it to be a more cost effective solution for trainee and newly qualified counsellors alike, that also fulfils BACP requirements for the granting of Diploma's and Accreditation purposes. Supervision is conducted at the Chester location. It is structured, collaborative and above all, delivered on a basis that we are all equal colleagues within the profession, fully qualified or soon to be.
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.
