I am a person-centred practitioner, I offer supervision to fellow counsellors, trainee counsellors and to other professionals who work directly with people, in a supporting/helping role.
As a supervisor I aim to support supervisees to reflect on all aspects of their clinical work by creating an environment that facilitates open and honest communication, that helps develop reflective practice, where the welfare of clients and the quality of therapy is central. As a supervisor I aim to provide a collaborative relationship for supporting, developing and monitoring the supervisee’s work in their counselling practice by:
• Open and honest communication
• Protecting and enhancing standards of practice
• Offering constructive feedback and guidance
• Providing an environment that is supportive and reflective
• Offer empathy and respect – to provide sufficient privacy for the supervisee to work with their personal issues involved in the work.
• Enhancing the aptitude, knowledge and skills of the counsellor focusing on work with current clients.
• Identify and monitor professional learning and development needs.
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.
