In addition of being a counsellor, I am also a supervisor. I have been supervising trainee counsellors in my workplace which is within the NHS, providing support, mentoring, casework Supervision, guidance on ethical practice and challenge. With qualified counsellors, I strive to enable them to develop as a therapist, get the most from their continuing professional development and improve their practice as a counsellor while paying attention to their work/life balance. Supervision is crucial and valuable for the supervisee to reflect on themselves as a practitioner. My approach as a supervisor is genuine and honest. It is important for me to listen, explore and reflect on what the supervisee is bringing. My fees are for Students £50 My fees are for qualified counsellors £60
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).
