Supervision is a key part of counselling, whether you are in training, new to counselling or an experienced counsellor.
In my supervision, I particularly focus on supporting you in your training, or experience, as well as offering perspective on your client relationships. Together we may explore boundaries, challenges, issues of power or feelings of overwhelm. Perhaps you are in need of support or someone to share in your experience. I'm here to support you personally and professionally, to help you provide a holding environment for others in a way that feels safe to you.
Emerging in the field of counselling can be a challenging task. I hope to guide you along your training and help you find your feet in your placements and course. I particularly work with issues surrounding difference and diversity. As someone of mixed-race myself, I highlight these issues and their often lacking discussion in counselling training. If you are seeking supervision as part of your course, please be sure to check your course requirements for supervision!
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.
