Professional & Clinical Supervision

This is a productive and rewarding session for the practitioner to look at their work practice and reframe any bothering issues that arise in their daily practice.

Time to encourage reflection on practice; feedback, to develop clinical skills; to share and utilise knowledge (Formative).

Time to discuss clinical difficulties; to express feelings.

Time to ensure high standards of clinical care are met through: expressing, exploring and accepting constructive criticism; providing support in relation to the demands of the job; addressing managerial, service and quality issues, such as monitoring practice, quality of care issues and safeguarding issues.

Clinical Supervision is a practice focused, professional relationship involving a clinician reflecting on practice guided by a skilled supervisor.

Clinical supervision

is essential in achieving and sustaining high quality practice which improves client experience, safety and outcomes

Supervision explained …

At different times the supervisor may act as a teacher, coach, mentor, role model and/or advisor.

This will vary according to many different factors, not least, the level of the supervisee’s field experience.

While supervisees may require guidance and direction at times, I view effective supervision as a collaborative process, wherein supervisees take an active role in:

  • choosing what aspect of their practice to focus on and explore
  • determining how the supervisor-supervisee dyad works together
  • offering feedback about the experience of the supervisory process and the relationship
  • developing and being accountable to their own professional standards
