During this difficult time I am using Zoom to support my supervises and clients with online video sessions. I am an Accredited Member of BACP. I hold an OCN Certificate in Counselling Supervision, a Diploma in Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Practice and Couples Counselling and I have also lectured on Level 3 and Level 4 ABC courses in Person Centred Counselling. I have over 15 years experience counselling children, young people and adults, offering warm, caring, counselling within an open, non-judgmental environment and will show clients self-help activities using Mindfulness and CBT, if applicable. My Supervision practice reflects my counselling style, which is based on Person Centred, but I would class myself as Integrative as I use other methods with my clients where appropriate and would be open to supervising other theoretical approaches. As a supervisory relationship is usually a long term working partnership, I feel it is important that both supervisor and supervise feel comfortable working with one another, so I offer an initial session of up to an hour FOR FREE to establish if we would be able to work together. Once we have agreed to work together, my costs are £60 per hour.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
