For me, it is paramount that additional training is undertaken to ensure safe and ethical practice at all levels.
The Supervisory role is such an important part of counselling practice and underpins and protects our work and our profession.
I work from a Person Centred modality in my Supervision and I utilise Hawkins and Shohet's (1985) 7 Eyed Model to support our work.
I am able to support Adult, Child and Young Person work, as well as Animal Assisted Therapies (I can also incorporate this into our Supervision).
Working within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice (2018), this holds our work safely and ethically, alongside the further supervision that I undertake to offer this type of work.
Please contact me to discuss whether we might be able to work together.
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.
