General Introduction

What is Supervision?

Supervision is a formal arrangement for Counsellors / Psychotherapists to discuss their work regularly with someone who is experienced in Counselling / Psychotherapy and Supervision.

The task is to work together to ensure and develop the efficacy of the Counsellor / Psychotherapist / Client relationship. The agenda will be the Counsellor / Psychotherapist’s work, with the Supervisor’s reactions and comments. Supervision is a process to maintain adequate standards of  Counselling / Psychotherapy and a method of consultancy to widen the horizons of the practitioner.

Why Supervision?

Supervision is seen by the IACP as vital to the process and ongoing maintenance of a Counsellor / Psychotherapist’s competency and continued accreditation.

All IACP Members working as Counsellor / Psychotherapists are bound by the IACP Code of Ethics and Practice to monitor their work through regular Supervision, to ensure that their standard of Counselling / Psychotherapy is competent and continues to develop.
