I fully understand the need for good supervision. Not only is it an ethical part of our practice as a therapist to have regular reflective supervision but it is also needed if we are to grow as therapists and not burn out.
Supervision is intended to be an encouraging and supportive experience for you. where you can also be gently challenged. i encourage my supervisees to be honest and open about any differences we may have and to respect each others ways of working.
I offer an integrated approach to supervision using Shoert 7 eyed model. Supervision offers you time to reflect and discuss your current client work in a safe and non judgemental place, enabling you to get the best outcome for your client. it will enable you to refocus and explore your thoughts and feelings around the impact the work is having on you both personally and professionally.
I am happy to provide supervision to trainee counsellors as well as qualified experienced therapists. i also work with other professionals within the caring profession.
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.
