I have a PG Diploma in Consultative supervision (level 7) and have supervised both qualified staff and students within the NHS over many years and currently supervise counsellors working for a cancer charity. My core training is in CBT but I have also worked in the NHS using both patient centred and attachment theories and practice. I aim to provide a safe supportive space for you to explore your client work, providing education and learning, and upholding ethical principles. There may be challenge but also celebration of success. I use Van Oojen's 3 step model as an overall structure for sessions and Hawkins and Shohet's 7 eyed model to give focus on the different and various aspects of the work. I would encourage you to make contact to discuss supervision requirements prior to arranging any sessions. Sessions cost £50 per hour.
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.
