Supervision details

Regularly supervision for both trainee counsellors and experienced practitioners are an essential requirement for therapeutic work with clients and provides a space for practitioners to work as effectively, safely and ethically as possible. (BACP, 2018)  I provide supervision in accordance with the BACP ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy. My approach I work from a person-centred perspective and my approach to supervision is relational. You can expect an empathic relationship that is authentic and accepting as well as an appropriate level of challenge. I am mindful of supervisee’s level of experience and development and will work with you at that level. For example trainee counsellors will have different needs from experienced counsellors.   I am also open to working creatively using a range of art materials, toys picture cards etc. The space I offer values, creativity, difference, diversity, vulnerability, presence, ruptures and collaborative repair. In a safe and co-created relationship I believe supervisee’s can:

  Become aware of blind spots which can be explored safely   Work with ethical dilemma without the threat of being judged  Work more confidently with difference and diversity for example  in relation to race,     culture, class  and sexuality   Explore self-care issues   Recognition of areas for development and as well acknowledging strengths                   

Please visit my website which gives you more information about my counselling and supervision service. Web: www.paulettegibson.co.uk Fee structure: I offer counselling supervision to individuals, pairs and small groups. Sessions for individuals are 50 minutes; longer sessions can also be arranged. The fee for individuals is £80 per hour.  For groups, length of sessions and fee will be arranged between us.   Some concessions are available for students.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
