I gained my counselling qualification in 2010 from Keele University with a MSc in Counselling Psychology and qualified as a supervisor in 2013 having studied at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy. Although I now have a private practice I have until recently worked within the NHS where I supervised both students and qualified counsellors. As well as my private counselling practice I am a visiting Lecturer at Chester University where I work with students of all ages offering them supportive learning. Supervision is an opportunity to reflect on our practice and to explore new ways of working and understanding our clients. It is an opportunity to develop our knowledge and skills in a safe non-judgemental environment. A place to be challenged and to challenge as I see supervision as a two way process where we can explore together how best to help the client and grow as counsellors. If you would like to chat about the possibility of us working together, please give me a call on 07809611745 and I can answer any queries you may have in helping you find the right supervisor for you.
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.
