Supervision details

We are currently using video conferencing (via Zoom, Skype, or VSee) to protect you, & to keep everyone safer during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sisto provides clinical supervision for counsellors and therapists at all stages and levels of their professional journey, and uses a number of supervision models and modalities specifically to suit the particular needs, requirements, and demands of each individual supervisee and their chosen modalities, philosophical and/or theoretical leanings, and working environment(s). Sisto is passionate about helping supervisees to develop their knowledge and skills in counselling, integrative psychotherapy, and CBT, as well as helping them process and manage any issues arising from their client work, their placements (where appropriate), their academic work (where appropriate) and their Degree or Diploma portfolios (where appropriate). Within clinical supervision, Sisto takes care to adhere to such core processes as the supervisory relationship, promulgating ethical practices, and managing the administrative aspects of supervision. Sisto ensures that supervisees are aware of their responsibility to adhere to relevant supervision ratios, and to work ethically within their private practices, workplace/employment settings, volunteer positions, or placement organisations. For students, Sisto will provide constructive feedback on audio/video recordings, in accordance with the requirements of such measures as the CTS-R and other relevant competence framework criteria. Sisto will also help review case studies and other portfolio requirements, write interim and final supervision reports, and monitor attendance, clinical work, and ethical practices. Sisto's primary focus is to ensure that all supervisees are supported to provide high quality, ethical, and informed services, whether in counselling, integrative therapy, or cognitive behavioural practice, and sees the principal functions of supervision to be: Personal and professional development - to promote supervisee's personal growth as individuals and therapists, to enable them to reflect on their own self-awareness, and on their responses and reactions within the counselling or psychotherapy process, to develop knowledge, skills, and congruent attitudes and qualities, and to delineate their own learning needs. Support - to enable supervisees to feel validated, supported, and gently challenged as they work to benefit their clients, to provide space for them to discuss any areas of difficulty and also their successes within their work, and to enable them to reflect on their current practice. Accountability - to ensure that supervisees maintain an ethical practice and reflect on the meaning of this, to ensure that they monitor their practice, to maintain the standards of their service, to ensure quality, and to ensure that they work towards course completion (if in training), and accreditation by their chosen membership or regulatory bodies, where appropriate or required.
