There are no universally agreed definitions – different definitions focus on different elements of the process. I like this one: a learning process in which a psychotherapist engages with a more experienced practitioner in order to enhance their skills in the process of ongoing development. This, in turn, promotes and safeguards the well-being of their clients. (Gilbert, M. and Evans, K. 2000 pg1)
Supervision is understood as a reflective and evaluative process conducted within a contracted working relationship between a qualified or trainee counsellor and an appropriately qualified and knowledgeable supervisor.
Supervision provides an opportunity for you to grow and develop as a therapist and to reflect and discuss clinical issues that have arisen in your clinical work.
If you have access to the members’ area of the BACP website, then you may wish to check the BACP article: how to choose a supervisor – as it may help you to identify things to consider when choosing a supervisor.
