Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision is an essential part of working therapeutically with clients.

All psychotherapists, counsellors, play therapists and supervisors are required to have on-going formal clinical supervision to support their work in accordance with professional requirements.  Clinical supervisors will hold significantly greater experience of practice than their supervisee and have a responsibility to maintain the good practice of supervisees and to protect clients from harm and bad practice.

Clinical Supervision is threefold: Educative, Supportive and Managerial (it is not line management).  The aim of the supervision is to monitor, develop and support the supervisee’s practice and will be independent of all managerial relationships.

The role of a Clinical Supervisor is to provide a supervisory space for the supervisee to reflect on the content and process of their client work. Issues might include therapeutic techniques, therapeutic relationships, difficult problems, ethical dilemmas or issues that impact upon the therapist personally as a result of the therapeutic process.

Counselling Solutions provides clinical supervision to professionals and front line workers and can work with individuals and groups.  Methods used to supervise reflective practice may incorporate creative techniques and creative mediums including sand, art, clay, drama.

If locating a clinical supervisor is difficult due to distance, we are able to provide Skype supervision, which may provide a viable option.  Currently we provide Skype supervision to supervisees in UK, Hong Kong, Egypt, Malta.
