Clinical supervision

We can provide Clinical Supervision for qualified counsellors, psychologists, social workers, family dispute resolution practitioners (FDRPs), mediators, and practitioners working in related fields.

Clinical Supervision is a process which supports practitioners to provide a better, more confident and creative service to clients. 

It will enable you to extend yourself in relation to your practice, or in qualifying for practice, by providing:

  • support to enhance your skills, competence and confidence
  • a reflective space and emotional support
  • assistance with professional development
  • guidance on delivering services to clients in a safe and ethical manner
  • information about compliance with professional and organisational treatment standards and ethics and legal issues in practice.


Delivery modes and settings

We can provide:

  • one-to-one, in-person supervision in a private setting or organisational context
  • in-person, group supervision in workplaces or organisations
  • e-supervision, which is provided online, via video-conferencing and over the telephone. 

The format of the supervision can be adapted to meet supervisees’ needs.

We can also provide group supervision to organisations or groups working in related industries.
