I supervise arts therapists, psychodynamic psychotherapists and counsellors, psychoanalytic psychotherapists and Jungian analysts. I qualified as an arts therapist in 1995 and worked as an arts therapist and supervisor for 12 years within the NHS. I qualified as a Jungian psychoanalyst (SAP) in 2005. I completed a psychodynamic supervisors course with the BAP in 2000. I am also trained as a "Reflective Practice Practitioner' with the IGA (Diploma). I have extensive experience in supervising for over 20 years, working with difficult patients in secondary NHS settings, both inpatient and outpatient, with severe and enduring mental health problems (psychotic and non-psychotic HonOS cluster groups). I enjoy supervision, and my approach is to enable you to reflect psychodynamically on all aspects of your work, and the therapeutic relationship, in an emotionally containing and deepened way.
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
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.
