I work with qualified Counsellors and students in training to become counsellors. I work face to face and on line and offer some flexibility.
I was trained with in the Developmental Model simple means, that I take into account the level at which you are starting from.
Our first meeting is an opportunity for us both to assess whether I am the right supervisor for you? What are your expectations from supervision and the model in which you were trained.
The relationship requires that we are both comfortable with each other based on mutual respect and a non judgemental environment. This will enable you to present your client's work without holding back for fear of being judged or which will not be in the clients best interest.
At the end of the meeting hopfully, we would have agreed a working contract. This will include venue, fees, how cancellation will be managed and our responsibility to each other for the purpose of supervision. I would encourage you to prepare for supervision and to reflect on your work with clients.
I work within the BACP guidelines for Good Practice in Supervision. I aim to work sensitively and embrace difference; to respect, support and help you to grow in confidence, skills and knowledge.
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.
