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.
