Who do I supervise? I welcome enquiries from health professionals, social workers, teachers and other professionals, as well as practitioners working in a wide range of counselling and psychotherapy settings, in paid and voluntary roles. What are my qualifications? I'm a qualified counsellor and registered, accredited member of BACP (see main counsellor profile). I have a certificate of counselling and psychotherapy supervision practice and have undergone further training in supervising counsellors working with risk; I also have experience of offering supervision for those using counselling skills in a non-therapeutic role. How do I practice? My supervision practice has grown out of my person-centred counselling practice, so I aim to create the same accepting and empathic environment for supervisees as I do for clients. As a supervisor, I use Hawkins & Shohet's "7-eyed supervisor" model (1989/1996) to facilitate the supervisee's growth and development as a practitioner whilst keeping the focus on the work with the client.
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.
