Supervision with Kerstin
Balancing being a diligent practitioner with the necessity to practice self-care and run a business or work in an organisational setting is not easy and requires ongoing self-reflection/coaching. That’s where my experience comes in to empathically support, challenge and empower you to stay on your path whilst sailing through sometimes rough waters with your clients.
My background is in providing contemporary trauma informed practice that incorporates intersectionality and practitioners wellbeing. Clients can introduce a multitude of themes that can make your head spin and wonder how it connects with their initial hopes for counselling outcomes. How might have their e.g. gender, skin colour, sexual orientation, age, class, culture etc. have informed their understanding about the struggles they are facing and how does your own intersectionality may impact the therapy process? Potentially working with a number of complex cases and narratives about experiences or witnessing of violence and abuse can lead to therapists developing secondary trauma traits. I therefore don’t limit our time together to client work, as counselling and psychotherapy supervision involves you, so bringing all of yourself to supervision; personal and/or private practice/organisational aspects.
I’m also there for you along your academic career from Diploma to Phd level, if you are planning to apply for accreditation, supervision training and/or planning to set up a thriving private practice. Despite going through difficult socio-political, environmental and pandemic dominated times I can provide you with supervision that is collaborative, dynamic, holding and respectful of your requirements.
I practice nationwide via Google Meet and can also offer in-person supervision in Bristol and Dursley (Gloucestershire). My usual in-person and Goolge Meet supervision days are: Monday and Thursday from 10am to 3pm in-person or 10am to 7pm via Google Meet. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at the rate of £110 per 1.5hrs or £73 per 60min. session.
I can offer a limited number of two monthly 45min./£55 supervision sessions between 11am-7pm in-person or via Google Meet. I would recommend to book a 45min. introductory session to explore your experiences/expectations and the way I work.
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.
