Clinical Supervision

 

Clinical supervision is an essential part of working therapeutically with clients.

All counselors, play therapists and other creative arts therapists are required to have regular clinical supervision in order to support their work in line with their professions’ requirements.  Clinical supervisors have a responsibility to maintain the good practice of supervises and to protect clients from harm and bad practice.

 

Clinical supervision is threefold: Educative, Supportive and Managerial (it is not line management). The role of a Clinical Supervisor is to provide a supervisory space for the supervisee to reflect on the content and process of their client work. Issues might include therapeutic techniques, therapeutic relationships, difficult problems, ethical dilemmas or issues that impact upon the therapist personally as a result of the therapeutic process. Methods used to supervise reflective practice may incorporate creative techniques and creative mediums including sand, art, clay, drama.

 

Our Clinical supervision can be face-to-face, over the telephone, or through Skype.
