Helping You Find Success With Counselling & Supervision
Professional Supervision for Counsellors and Allied Professionals
Supervision is the process whereby a counsellor can speak to someone who is trained to identify any behavioural and/or psychological changes in the counsellor that could be due to an inability to cope with issues of one or more clients.
A supervisor is also responsible for challenging practices and informing supervisee’s of alternative theories and/or new practices, as well as changes in the industry. The supervisor is responsible for observing the mental health of their supervisee in turn protecting the public from poor practices.
Counsellors can face issues such as transference and burn out without any recognition of the symptoms. A professional supervisor would notice the symptoms long before the counsellor. Supervision is a learned discipline separate from counselling.

How often will I need Supervision?
Once a month – supervisees are required, for compliance, to attend 10 sessions annually. Supervision is a mandatory ACA expectation.
What about confidentiality and supervision agreements?
All our supervisees must complete a confidentiality and contract agreement that explains the terms and conditions. We send these documents for reading and then signing prior to the first session.
We use an eclectic approach for both counselling and supervision, narrative, cognitive behaviour therapy and others. The Rise Up Model is also very helpful.
Counselling skills such as advanced micro-skills are used as well as a solid base of knowledge on theories old and new and a working knowledge of the industry.
