What is Supervision
WHAT SUPERVISION MEANS
It is important to note that Supervision is not personal counselling, nor is it professional development education, but guidance, assistance and support for professional practice. A therapist utilises a supervisor to assist them to build the quality of their professional practice. The Supervisor is there for the therapist and their clients. Supervision is a valuable part of a therapist’s growth, ethically, professionally and personally. I have the great fortune to be supervised by Ernest Rossi, PhD. Everyone benefits from a supportive, wise, and experienced supervisor.
IN A NUTSHELL
A supervisor is there to help, assist, encourage, advise, resolve and reflect over a number of important areas of professional practice, including:
Concerns with clients and therapeutic progress
Professional and personal burn-out – wellbeing and self-care
Business and management skills and practice
Through compassionate and effective supervision, counsellors new and old are able to develop their professional identity and gain an objective, in-depth look at their counselling practices.
