Clinical Supervision Clinical Supervision I began the supervision of student counsellors in 2007 and then obtained my Diploma in Supervision in 2010. I now have many years of experience in working with student, interim and experienced counsellors who are working with an adult client base. My own way of working as an Integrative Counsellor draws on Person Centred and Psychodynamic practise, laterally incorporating some aspects of Cognitive and Behavioural theory. As a supervisor I particularly enjoy helping other counsellors to develop and explore their practise in a safe, supportive environment, and to form an effective working synthesis between their professional and personal selves – that is, to really find the way of working that is right for each individual supervisee, and to build confidence in the process of effective, ethical counselling. As a former senior counsellor I have years of experience in working with often complex issues, overseeing the running and the work of a team of counsellors, setting up & establishing a new counselling service, and dealing with the undoubted challenges of the modern work environment.

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.
