Professional Supervision

Supervision for Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Therapist

Supervision is an essential part of the counselling, psychotherapy, and psychological process. We care deeply about your work and identify your strengths and future goals. Together we can create a safe environment that meets your unique needs. You can trust us to encourage you to think in ways that promote personal growth through self-discovery and collaborative work.

People of various ages ethnicity and ability

If you are a student or professional health practitioner, let’s see how we can collaborate to make your work more client-focused, ethically driven, and personally satisfying. Our supervision services are for counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists, and other health care providers. Supervision is critical for your therapy goals, training and continuing education in techniques that benefit your clients and keep you abreast of new treatment modalities.

What is Professional Supervision in Practice?

Professional Supervision recognises the need for ongoing professional development and the importance of supporting professional growth and transition. ACA members must complete annual supervision leading up to their next renewal date. Ongoing supervision is necessary to maintain professional development, professional networks and knowledge exchange opportunities.

Professional supervision is the way you check you are talking about the right things with your client. It is the measure of everyone’s work against one another and not in isolation. Professional assessment and supervision is an integral part of training to maintain a level of quality. This day to day management process will ensure that your training leads to strong counselling skills and therapeutic support work.
