Supportive, Reliable and Confidential If you are looking for clinical or professional supervision I am happy to offer my services. In order to check that our relationship will be a good fit, the first session will focus on your wants and needs and what I can offer, and how we can work together succesfully. This session is free and usually takes a little under an hour. I enjoy working with counselling students, as well as qualified mental health practitioners and others working in the caring professions. My post-graduate qualification is in Integrative and Relational Supervision, and I offer an integrative and relational approach that respects practitioners from many different fields and theoretical backgrounds. The supervision will be supportive and will pay careful and particular attention to your own self-care and facilitation of growing resilience. It will be reflective, a place where you can reflection and evaluate your practice and consider how your own values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours impact on your work. It will be developmental, stimulating critical thinking about the relationship between theory and practice, and facilitating integration of the formal and informal training, skills and experience you have undergone. Supervision also has a managerial aspect and pays attention to the wellbeing of clients by reviewing your ethical and theoretical basis of practice. Currently all my work is online in order to comply with rules around social distancing. I offer a student discount as well as concessions to key workers.
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.
