I am a qualified supervisor CPCAB level 6 in Therapeutic Supervision (2015) Prior to this training I was course director for the FdSc in Counselling and a module lead for supervised practice where I trained and supervised trainee counsellors in supervised practice for10 years. I have been in professional practice as a supervisor since 2015 I work with trainee and qualified counsellors and multidisciplinary practitioners. I practice using a Cyclical (Page and Woskett 2001) model and utilise a Seven Eyed Process model Hawkins ans Shohet (2006) for both therapeutic and multidisciplinary practice. My fees are £35 per hour for trainee and volunteer counsellors and £40 per hour for qualified and paid practitioners. As a supervisor I endeavour build supervisory relationships that foster trust and facilitate a supervisory experience which is Formative, Resourcing and Qualitative. As an therapist accredited with BACP I support counsellors to work towards accreditation.
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.
