Supervision details

Supervision can be summarized as educational, supportive and administrative. All Counsellors and Psychotherapists working in this area of ​​patient care should be supervised. Regardless of experience, the vast majority of professional bodies in the UK, such as the British Counseling and Psychotherapy Association (BACP), require supervision. It is seen as an ethical imperative. Supervision exists for two reasons: For the patient's well-being. For the professional development of the therapist.

As a supervisor, I´ll help the Counsellor or Psychotherapist to reflect on his/her work, explore other possible ways of working, discover new ideas and strategies, analyze some of the interventions with the patient and their consequences, receive feedback and some more guidance whenever necessary. Together, we´ll ensure continuous learning on a personal and professional level. We will gain greater awareness of ourselves, our work, our patients and the dynamics of the relationships involved.
