I am approachable, practical, realistic, caring, understanding and non judgemental. I will challenge in an honest and supportive way.
My role as your supervisor:
· To provide an overall safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment for supervision
· To provide the agreed amount of time on the agreed date on a 1:1 basis, either face to face or online (Zoom)
· To provide appropriate learning, advice and support for your ongoing professional development
· To provide emotional support in relation to client work
· To monitor, challenge, suggest, advise, encourage and support you.
· To raise any concerns about client work I may have as and when they arise
· To discuss those concerns with you and work with you to address them, with a beneficial outcome in mind
· To work with you to provide the most useful form of supervision that is right for you (I work from the seven eyed model, but adapt supervision offered to meet the needs of each supervisee)
· To learn from you and your client work for my own ongoing professional development (we are peers)
· To be available in emergency/urgent situations for supervisory support where possible
· To invite review of the supervision I provide on an agreed basis
· To be accountable to you and NCS/BACP code of ethics
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.
