I have a Diploma in Supervision and offer both in person, and online sessions. I aim to support and encourage you in developing your practice. I work in an integrative way and am informed by the Seven Eyed Supervision Model (Hawkins & Shohet). The practice of counselling and psychotherapy has the potential to be an isolated profession, therefore I believe that developing a trusting, supervisory relationship which enables you to feel safe in exploring both the successes and challenges faced in practice, is vitally important. Such a relationship should support and facilitate your personal and professional awareness, as well as better outcomes for clients. I have worked in a variety of settings and have been in private practice for a number of years and am happy to share any experience, or knowledge that you may find useful.
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.
