The importance of Supervision for our counselling work is a concept that is understood ethically and also to ensure the Normative, Formative and Restorative needs we have are being met.
The Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions tells us the following as part of the Supervision section.
62. Supervision requires additional skills and knowledge to those used for providing services directly to clients. Therefore supervisors require adequate levels of expertise acquired through training and/or experience. Supervisors will also ensure that they work with appropriate professional support and their own supervision.
My practice offers a dedicated space for supervisors to bring their supervision work for Collaboration to ensure continued professional and personal development.
