Cross-Professional Supervision

What is clinical supervision?Karen Graham - Northstar Counselling

For therapists supervision of this type is to protect both the counsellor and the client.

It offers a reflective place to bring case load and look deeper at the process at hand.  This can be a creative space to explore the case and your part in it.

Clinical supervision is a vital part of self care and support for the therapist, enabling you to work to your full potential and reduce the potentially negative impact on yourself.

As supervision is a professional requirement by IACP (Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and other bodies, Karen offers an affordable rate.

What is cross-professional supervision?

Cross-professional supervision provides a supportive environment/space for those who’s work can create burnout.  Cross-supervision offers a space to off-load, confidentially discuss experiences, and manage those experiences for ‘self care’.  Both you and those you work with benefit from the support you get.

In highly demanding jobs, cross-professional supervision aids professionals in maintaining a healthy life/work balance. It provides support for those in the caring professions such as; nursing, gardai, foster parents, social care workers, emergency services person, prison officers, to name a few.

To perform best in our professional work, self-care is an important part of the journey.  In recognition of same, some employers funds external support for cross-professional supervision.  External support provides a safe place when;

  • internal support isn’t available.
  • internal support is lacking.
  • you’d like confidentiality.
  • you wish to avoid internal power dynamics.

Good support is the spring board to excel, increasing your productive and your job satisfaction.
