I have an Advanced Diploma in Relational Supervision and offer warm, friendly and professional Person-Centred / Integrative Counselling Supervision for counsellors in the Bristol area. My own brilliant Supervisors have instilled in me a passion for supporting others in a way that is collaborative and empowering, and fundamentally beneficial to clients. The BACP code of conduct stipulates that every practitioner should have a minimum of one and a half hours of supervision per month, but recognises that this can vary by workload and experience. The higher your workload, the more stressful your work, the more supervision you’re likely to need. My approach to supervision has 4 main aims:Providing you with support for the often difficult emotional issues you will be working with – an opportunity to ‘offload’ Helping you to reflect on your work as a professional – enabling you to learn from your experiences safely, ethically and effectively. Supporting supervises towards accreditation with professional bodies in the UK. Enabling accountability through the mutual monitoring of your practice– by preparing for our sessions you will be recording, analysing, and managing your workSupervision SessionsTime: 90 minutes per monthCost: £75 per session
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.
