Clinical Supervision, Mentoring, Life Coach
Clinical supervision is a requirement for counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists and other allied health professionals.
Supervision is essential to ensure high standards of professional practice. Ongoing supervision helps practitioners to monitor and review the quality of their work as well as their client's progress. Supervision also provides personal support and a process for practitioners to monitor their own ongoing mental health and emotional well being. This is crucial for ongoing professionalism in emotionally demanding work.
Supervision is a form of professional self-regulation.
Counselling supervision is especially important for trainees. Counselling skills can appear deceptively simple to learn with few technical details or technical language.
Supervision has a special role in helping trainees move beyond basic forms of counselling skills to develop a more sophisticated and sensitive form of counselling expertise. Equally, counselling placements need careful management and structured support.
The trainee experience should be encouraging and empowering rather than negatively demanding.
Supervision provides personal support and a solid base to help trainees make sense of their learning experiences and to facilitate their professionalism.
