Psychological supervision is an integral part of an psychological or counseling training and is also a valued resource to even the most experienced therapist. Supervision provides the therapist with a confidential space to discuss their clinical cases and to work through any difficulties or problems they are encountering with another experienced therapist. The UK Health Care Professions Council stipulate that its members be in bi-monthly supervision throughout their career to ensure the efficacy and ethics of their practice. Supervision is an excellent way to gain new insight in to ways of working or clinical approaches, and to work through the therapists own experiences of transference and counter-transference in a safe and ethical way. Supervision can be provided “cross-discipline” ie a psychologist can supervise a psychotherapist, where appropriate.
