Your Own Counselling Consultant – Stepping towards Excellence

As a counsellor, you can often feel like a lone island floating in a sea of other peoples’ challenges. You can feel unsure and sometimes even ill-equipped to handle the complex scenarios that walk through your door.

“Supervision is perhaps the most important component in the development of a competent practitioner.”
– Corey, Corey & Callanan

There are numerous reasons to make the choice to engage in supervision. A good supervisor will:

  • Always offer support
  • Assist in managing your workload
  • Challenge to improve your ways of coping
  • Clarify client challenges
  • Help navigate the path to change

  • Identify blind spots
  • Boost counsellor confidence
  • Develop new and existing skills
  • Increase overall client satisfaction
  • Ensure ethical practice

“There is reason to show good supervision correlates with job satisfaction.” – Hawkins & Shohet

“I never thought I would look forward to supervision each month – but I do! I find it a place to be vulnerable, gain knowledge and clarity, and have someone to share in the responsibility of helping my clients navigate through their difficulties.” – Supervisee, Calgary

It’s time to stop worrying about whether you are giving your best to your clients, or just hoping you are “doing it right”!

“Supervision has become one of my favorite hours in my month – not only have I developed more confidence as a counsellor, I know longer feel alone and my clients are benefitting as well” – Supervisee, Calgary
