Attending Supervision on a regular basis is an integral part of the therapist’s commitment to his/her clients. Supervision is an activity which allows people who complete emotionally difficult roles to meet and discuss issues in a supportive forum.
Offering both support and challenge, supervision is a recognised method to build personal skills. It allows people who have “emotional interface” jobs to deliver optimum performance and be at their best.
In a sometimes “chaotic world” group supervision provides a space to reflect on best practice.
Clinical supervision is an emerging area of cross disciplinary practice in a range of different professional disciplines, especially health and social care areas of practice.
Professional supervision is increasingly being recognised as a necessary support structure that is mandated in a range of professions including Social Work, Social Care, Psychology, Childcare, Youthreach, Nursing, Psychotherapy and Counselling.
