I have 17 years post qualification experience and for the past 15 years have been providing supervision within the NHS and in private practice. I think supervision is a necessary important integral part of our ongoing development and self-care as therapists. I aim to provide you with a safe supervisory relationship through which we might explore together the thoughts and feelings you have about your clients and about yourself as a practitioner. I work predominantly from within a classic Person-Centred approach. As such I would always strive to apply the attitudinal qualities of empathy, acceptance and genuineness within our supervisory relationship, whatever your theoretical approach might be. Exploring the relationship you have developed, or in the process of developing with your clients, would be a feature of our work together, as would your well-being.
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.
