I trained, and qualified in Hawkins and Shohet 7 eyed Model of Supervision, and have extensive experience working as a Clinical Supervisor in the Charity Sector with Relate, Beacon and TLC, and as Clinical Lead for The Relationship Hub. My experience also comes from working with other professional organisations, offering supervision to Social Workers, Child Protection Officers, Teaching Staff, and Welfare workers. In my experience of working for Relate, and Beacon, I have been privileged to work with a lot of students, doing their level 3, 4, 5, Diploma and MA courses. I understand of a lot of the difficulties that new counsellors face, emotionally, practically and financially, whether it is to do with their placement, training, client work, or personal difficulties. I will always endeavour to bring out the best and to highlight what is working well as well as looking at if something could be done differently. Supervision can be face to face, online, or by telephone. Supervisee Feedback: 'Thank you for all your support. If it wasn't for you I would have quit.' 'I now understand the importance of counselling assessments and reviews and I will use these in my practice.' 'Supervision with you is always interesting. I always come away with something to think about, or a way of working that hadn't occurred to me before.' 'I have now learnt to use my whole self in the room with the clients.' 'Lorraine, you have truly helped me become an intuitive and creative counsellor.' 'Your faith in my ability has helped me through some difficult times.' I can offer individual face to face Supervision, telephone or an online supervision. Supervision is 1.5 hours, and cost £85. Student concessions can be negotiated.
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.
