Two vital aspects of supervision are the welfare of the client and the development of the supervisee

There is also more than one way for clinical supervision to be conducted. As a supervisor, I am open, approachable, kind and empathic.  I always strive to embrace the following principles in my work:

  • To establish a relationship with my supervisees.
  • To understand and implement the multiple roles of a supervisor such as; consultant, mentor, teacher, model, counsellor and evaluator.
  • To monitor supervisees development.
  • To be flexible and try to meet the different needs of each supervisee by adapting my role and style to meet each supervisees’ learning requirements and level.
  • To monitor the supervisees’ approach to clients, offering guidance and to be supportive for ongoing learning.
  • To support supervisees in maintaining a quality of service to their clients
  • To work within a supervision model/s giving a structure to the supervisory process.
  • To undertake my own supervision
  • To continue with my own professional development.
