Supervision details

The aim of my supervision is to provide an attentive and supportive climate within which a therapist can develop new options for managing themselves and their work with greater satisfaction and effectiveness by:

  • Supporting the continuing professional development of the supervisee’s skills, knowledge and insight in a way that the supervisee can understand and absorb
  • Shared accountability to uphold standards and ethics, i.e. ethical requirement of the BACP, colleges, employers and other organisations
  • Providing the supervisee with constructive feedback, appropriate challenge, support and a safe place “for discharging and recharging batteries” (Inskipp and Proctor, 1989)
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.
