I know first-hand how taxing and overwhelming it can be to work as a supporter. Supervision of counsellors, wellbeing advisors, or workers and managers in wellbeing or educational settings is essential to sustain such an important workforce.
I believe in empathetic supervision, that I've been conducting for 6 years now both in the US and in the UK, utilising my experience in mental health and counselling, integrative psychotherapy and multicultural psychology, and integrating it with my 15 years of people management and change development.
I enjoy supervising individually and in groups under an integrative approach, or that are trying to expand their horizons from just one school of training. It's invaluable for me to make it engaging and interesting to look at the client's issues, bumps on the road, and interventions, from many different points of you.
I hold a Master of Education in Mental Health Counselling and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology obtained at Columbia University in New York City (USA). I currently work as the Head of Wellbeing of a prestigious university in London, as well as supporting Solas Mind in bringing access to mental health and wellness to the entertainment industry,
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.
