So you’ve set up your practice and booked your first appointments. It seems like everything is going well, so is it really necessary to have professional supervision?

Regular supervision is a mandatory requirement of professional associations and provides clinicians with essential support throughout their practice and especially in those first few years of working.

Despite her concerns about the added expense of seeing a supervisor when she was building her professional practice, Kellie Miles experienced enormous benefits. “Supervision meant that I wasn’t alone and I could flourish under the eyes of a kind and trusted elder,” she says. She credits the growth of her practice with supervision sessions, calling it her Super Power.

So what sorts of things can you take to supervision? Quality supervision is a place where you can
🌀present how you are working with your clients,
🌀examine any areas where you feel stuck or uncertain,
🌀look at other ways of approaching an issue or concern,
🌀unpack your response to the client,
🌀work through your triggers or transference or projection,
🌀unravel ethical dilemmas,
🌀consider the physical, emotional and spiritual impact of your work on you as a therapist,
🌀be challenged and encouraged and
🌀above all be supported to grow and develop.
