I will work with you to develop your own authentic way of working, developing your own strengths and preferences in your client work, to help you take ownership of your practice and better serve your clients. I work in an integrative way, with a person centred and relational core, believing that the relationship between us is an essential component of supervision, and where most of the work is done. I work with a range of clients, including adults, teens and young people. I am also experienced in working remotely and am qualified to supervise this aspect of your client work. I have a particular interest in working with neurodiverse clients with autism, ADHD, or dyspraxia, either with a self- diagnosis or officially diagnosed. I can also supervise any work you have with this client group, which, although has commonalities with counselling neurotypical clients, can present specific differences which will affect how you work. I am happy to support your practice, whether you are in the early stages of your career or are a more experienced therapist, and I supervise with reference to the BACP Ethical Framework and the National Counselling Society Code of Practice. With a background in training and teaching, as well as a first degree in Psychology, I am well placed to support your theoretical knowledge development as well as your client work and will offer encouragement and praise as well as appropriate challenge. I am happy to work with you on an on-going basis. I also offer additional ad-hoc supervision sessions as a supplement to your regular supervision to support your work with neurodiverse clients a, cover absences in your regular supervision, or act in an interim capacity if you are needing to sort out changes in your regular supervision.
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.
