I have been practicing as a Counsellor since 2006 and qualified as a Supervisor in 2020. I provide supervision to both trainee and qualified Counsellors who work in an integrative humanistic approach, offering a supportive mentoring style that enables you to fulfill your potential with your clients. For trainees, this will mean advancing through Kram's Four Stages (Initiation, Cultivation, Separation, Redefinition) until we achieve a new relationship which puts us on an equal footing. At that point, the relationship has the potential to enhance both your professional development and my own, for we are all always learning! I can offer one-to-one supervision at £40 per hour (£35 for trainees) or work with small groups of two to three trainees with a pre-existing familiarity with each other at £20 per person per hour, which might be more cost-effective. Longer sessions by negotiation. Additionally supervision for both qualified and trainee Counsellors can be carried out online using a variety of video conferencing platforms. I welcome initial telephone or email enquiries to explore whether we would have sufficient compatibility to work effectively together.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
