Training in supervision is not something that I took lightly. I know just how much I value my own supervision and I knew that if I went down the route of training then I would want to be the type of supervisor that cares, listens, and really wants to help you work the best that you can, by myself working the best that I can. A bit about me...I qualified as a counsellor and then set up a counselling department within the school that I was working in, while still continuing to volunteer at my placement in a Hospice. I also set up my own private practice that includes counselling as well as workshops for well-being. Just because I feel so passionate about the field of counselling and psychotherapy, I then went on to become a tutor at the local college teaching CPCAB courses to train others. So, I have experience in many different areas which I feel is important in a supervisor. I also love too work creatively. I know when I was looking for a supervisor that had knowledge of working with children and young people, understood working creatively, and experience of private practice...well...it was hard! This was one of the things that led me to train as a supervisor. If this sounds to you like we might be able to work together, then please text, email or phone me and we can arrange for a meeting to discuss if we both feel we could work together.

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.
