Sheila can help you with Supervision!
Supervision is an important part of a professional Counsellor’s life. Regular and appropriate supervision of client cases helps to protect clients and support Counsellors in what can prove to be very demanding work.
In their Registrant’s Guide to Supervision the BACP define Supervision as:
“A specialised form of mentoring provided for practitioners responsible for undertaking challenging work with people. Supervision is provided to ensure standards, enhance quality, advance learning, stimulate creativity and support the sustainability and resilience of the work being undertaken” (Ethical framework for the Counselling professions: Glossary; www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework)
They go on to say that “Supervision is a value of the ethical framework and the register requires that all registrants should engage in supervision appropriate to their practice. Supervision allows the practitioner a reflective space in which to develop practice and as such benefits client safety.
Supervisors should be sufficiently experienced in counselling and psychotherapy or a closely related field ideally with some training and qualification in supervision.”
