Regular Supervision for Counsellors: for reflection, feedback and where appropriate, guidance
Regular supervision enables counsellors and psychotherapists to review their work with clients, enhance and develop their professional practice. The supervisory relationship is not primarily a therapeutic one.
Definition of Supervision
Inskipp and Proctor describe supervision as a working alliance between a supervisor and a counsellor in which the counsellor can offer an account or recording of her/his work, reflect on it, receive feedback, and where appropriate, guidance. The object of this alliance is to enable the counsellor to gain in ethical competence, confidence, and creativity so as to give her/his best possible service to her/his clients.
