I am a qualified supervisor and have many years experience working with individuals, providing supervision and reflective practice. The aim of supervision is to provide a safe, supportive space in which individuals engage in critical and personal reflection in order to raise issues, explore problems and discover new ways of working with the aim of becoming better therapists. My passion, within supervision, is to create a learning environment where we can learn from each other, feel comfortable enough to explore mistakes, challenge any blind spots and reflect on ways to improve professional practice. Being a therapist means that we are more susceptible to burn out because we are giving out emotionally to every client. Good supervision and finding the right supervisor is vital in maintaining a high level of professionalism, which ensures that you are able to continue being a therapist that provides quality therapy. Sessions are from £45-£65 per session. (Hourly rate includes reports needed for placement hours)
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
