What is Counselling Supervision?
When you get counselling for anger management or another issue, your counselor may also have counselling supervision. This is done simply to ensure that you get the highest level of counselling care that is available.
A counselling supervisor makes sure that you are happy with your counsellor, and that adequate progress is always being made. If you ever have any questions about the strategies or techniques that your counselor suggests, you can always ask the counselling supervisor about it. The counselling supervisor works mostly directly with the counselor. In this way, the counselor can bounce ideas off the supervisor and get more resources available to help you with your anger management or other issues. Counselling supervision is just another layer of resources and protection for persons who are seeking counselling services. It helps to ensure that you are getting good value and top level counselling services.
The Ethical Framework defines supervision as:
"A specialised form of mentoring provided for practitioners responsible for undertaking challenging work with people. Supervision is provided to ensure standards, enhance quality, advance learning, stimulate creativity, and support the sustainability and resilience of the work being undertaken."
Supervision offers you a reflective space in which to develop practice and so benefits client safety. All aspects of your practice should be open to supervision.
