My decision to train as a supervisor felt like a natural development of my experience in counselling and something I am really looking forward to offering to experienced or trainee counsellors.
Finding a supervisor that you feel comfortable with is really important and I will always endeavour to offer you a space where you feel supported and that helps you enhance and develop your counselling practice with your clients kept at the centre of our work together.
If you want to see if we may be a good fit, I invite you to contact me to arrange an initial meeting. This initial session will give you the chance to experience how I work and whether you feel we could work together. There is no cost for this initial 1/2 hour session and there is no obligation to book further sessions.
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.
