I work collaboratively with my supervisees believing that everyone has something valuable to bring to the work whatever stage they may be at in their counselling career. I am an integrative practitioner with my roots in person centred and psychodynamic theory, now heavily influenced by attachment theory and dyadic developmental practice and PACE therapeutic parenting. I am open to working with supervisees from other therapeutic schools and non-counsellors from other helping professions. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of facilitating change in our clients and that whatever school we work from the quality and development of this is a primary goal.
If you are looking for a new supervisor and feel I may be a good fit please get in-touch. I offer a free 30 minute Zoom or face to face session so that you can get a sense of how I work and if I am the right person for you.
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.
