Supervision is a fundamental tool for the continued growth of counsellors. It helps to understand some of the rules that may not have been fully covered in their schoolings (note taking, subpoenas, assessments, business practices, ethics) and it also helps remove blocks affecting the therapeutic alliance with their clients.
Our own personal trauma can get mixed up in our relationship with our clients. As such, it is important that we always stay curious about our part of the therapeutic relationship. Having regular supervision encourages us to keep shining that light on ourselves with curiosity and compassion…and allows us to continue to grow and walk the talk that we ask our clients to walk. Sometimes the block is us and we are ethically required to continue looking at what we bring to the table.
Competency Based – Process Oriented Supervision for Counsellors
I operate from a Competency Based platform using Process Oriented Supervision. This means, the supervisee will be bringing their client cases as well as themselves to the session. It is amazing how we are presented with clients that help illuminate areas where we have some more of our own growing to do! This is normal. We are meant to continuing growing and expanding throughout our lives – there is always another layer of the onion to discover. We can only take our clients as far as we have gone ourselves. Supervision is a perfect way to continue growing and expanding. As you grow, you will see the shift in your clients as well.
