It has been my privilege to work with hundreds of individuals on their own personal journeys to become helping professionals - Counsellors, Coaches, and others. And a personal journey is exactly what it is. Being a helping professional is so much more than a job or something you do. It is who you are at your core. You've likely experienced traumas and stresses of your own making you a good fit to support others who are struggling.
We're all human, and there's no cruise control for our minds. Sometimes circumstances, situations beyond our control, and sometimes even ourselves can cause us to veer off-track. That's why we become helping professionals - to support those suffering and experiencing challenges in their life; facilitating growth and change.
But as professionals, we don't have all the answers and we need to support ourselves to prevent ourselves from experiencing vicarious traumatisation or burnout and that's where Supervision comes in.
Supervision is our sounding board, a safe place to explore theoretical concepts, client experiences, and our emotional reactions to the support we provide.
The relationship is at the core of good supervision.
We see supervision as a collaborative process between the supervisor and the supervisee.
The purpose of supervision:
To enable the supervisee to remain in good mental and emotional health
To offer education/guidance for issues in the supervisee’s professional practice context (eg. ethical and client issues).
To assist the supervisee in further development as a professional within their field and offer ongoing support eg business-building skills, and career development.
At Living-through-Grief we are pleased to be able to offer specialist clinical supervision to counsellors and other professionals.
Come as you are, leave more able.
Professional supervision is a mandatory component of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) registration for counsellors. Individual and group supervision is available.
We believe Supervision to be an essential part of good practice for anyone in the helping professions.
