Working in the caring professions means that, as practitioners, we all need help and support at some time. BACP guidelines state that counsellors should undertake 1.5 hours of supervision per month.Further information for counsellors and sex therapists...Effective counselling relies heavily on the emotional health and development of the counsellor or therapist and supervision helps to maintain this. Supervision helps to enhance the skills of the supervisee, leading to improved outcomes with the client. I work in a structured, integrative, way using cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic and systemic theories.But it's not just for counsellors...All practitioners working in the helping or caring professions - from staff who work in hospices and care homes to nurses and teachers for example - can benefit from regular supervision. Supervision is based on development and aims to help the supervisee reflect on all dimension of his/her practice within their profession. It is not 'management support', rather a space to help maintain practitioner wellbeing.What next...If you are looking for a clinical supervisor to help support you and develop your skills, then please give me a call on 07500 716 801 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
