Clinical Supervision for Mental Health Professionals
Professional clinical supervision is offered for both individuals and for small groups or teams.
Professional supervision provides an opportunity for workers to reflect on their practice. In order to gain and maintain accreditation, most mental health professionals require on-going clinical supervision. However it’s so much more than just a way to build up Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements .
Emphasis is given to the importance of self-care, to prevent compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and burnout.
You may have heard the term reflective practice before. It’s something that often comes up in supervision. Reflective practice is a huge part of supervision is the essence of reflective practice. Reflective practice has been conscious of the things we’re doing and why we’re doing them. I believe this is so important in our practice as it allows us to grow to change and to adapt our practice as necessary.
Being reflective in your work means examining your own thoughts in relation to the clients that you work with. It means being self-aware while remaining curious and open. It also involves consultation and collaboration with peers and supervisors to help you understand your own capacities and needs as well of those of your clients. Reflection is a core area of focus in supervision at The Therapy Hub.
