Hi, I'm Diane, I work full-time in my own counselling practice in Marsden, West Yorkshire, where I offer sessions both face-to-face and online via Zoom. I qualified as a counsellor in 2018, and I am now training to become a supervisor.
Prior to having my own practice, I gained counselling experience in a number of settings, these included working for Mosaic 2, which was an organisation that specialised in working with those who had experienced sexual abuse and their families. I was also a counsellor at CHART, where I worked with those experiencing substance addiction, and at Women Centre where I specialised in working with those who had experienced Domestic Abuse. I also taught Counselling Skills and Health & Social Care at a local FE college.
I am looking to work with supervisees who are newly qualified or in their early years of practice. I am offering free supervision for the first 5 sessions, if we continue to work together after this period, the sessions will be charged at my normal hourly rate (currently £45). I can offer supervision face-to-face, or online via Zoom. At the moment I am afraid that I don’t offer Supervision outside the UK.
As your supervisor, I will aim to offer you a safe supportive space where you can explore your work and your own process around it. As part of this, I believe that the relationship between the Supervisor and Supervisee is incredibly important in order to develop trust and authenticity. If you would like to have an introductory chat to get to know me a little more and explore if we could work together, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
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.
