Professional Counselling & Supervision


Supervision is a professional service, rather than a managerial role.

Supervision provides a structured approach to deeper reflection on clinical practice.  This can lead to improvements in practice and client care, and contribute to clinical risk management.

Clinical supervision in the workplace was introduced as away of using reflective practice and shared experiences as part of continuing professional development.

Clinical supervision sessions should be carefully structured and managed with clearly defined aims and objectives such as:

  • A process
  • Commitment to confidentiality
  • Open and honest learning
  • sharing best practice
Effective supervision encourages self-awareness, personal development as well as continued learning and reflective practices.
