I have been providing clinical supervision for counsellors and therapists in Stockton on Tees for a number of years. My aim is to provide a safe and supportive environment where you can review and examine your practice and your relationships with clients. My consultancy is based in Stockton on Tees with supervisees coming from around the local area. I believe that the most effective, creative and safest therapy comes from your ability to constantly challenge your own perceptions and feelings as they arise in the therapeutic relationship. Supervision should be a positive and creative experience that enables you to review your work in an honest and respectful way. My practice is influenced by person-centred theory, but also includes my experience as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
I offer supervision to a wide variety of professionals, including;
- University Students
- Counsellors working with both adults and young people
- Therapists in private practice
- Therapists working in lots of different companies
- Local Authority workers
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.
