Supervision for Psychotherapist and Counsellors

Supervision is offered to psychotherapists and counsellors who are in training, pre accredited and accredited with IAHIP, IACP and other professional associations. Supervision fulfils the criteria of these professional bodies and can be arranged at a frequency which suits both the supervisee and supervisor. individual and group supervision is available.

Supervision for other Professionals

Supervision is offered to professionals who work closely with other individuals or groups. This provides the worker or supervisee with emotional and psychological support in their work, an opportunity to reflect on their work and work practice enabling them to continue to develop professionally while providing the best possible service to their clients. Supervision appointments are arranged to suit the supervisee and supervisor in either individual or group situations. The supervisee or worker benefits from supervision through having a safe space to discuss their work. Supervision also provides an opportunity to review their practice so allowing for continual professional growth and development. The benefit of supervision for the employer is a worker who feels supported both emotionally and psychologically in their challenging work so reducing worker stress. Supervision offers the chance for the worker to review and improve the quality of service received by their clients due to the continuing reflection on their work practice. This also enhances the professional development of the worker due to the reflective practice employed.

Group Supervision

Group supervision is available to supervisees in groups of two upwards, though the proportion of group members to time is recommended at half an hour per person. This means that a group of four people will have a two hour supervision session. The advantage to the supervisee is that there can be greater learning in a group due to the input of other group members and in general the greater body of knowledge held in the group For the employer group supervision can be more cost effective than individual supervision. It can offer a group of workers the opportunity to enhance their work as a team as well as drawing on the knowledge and expertise of their co workers.
