Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists are encouraged to have ongoing supervision as long as they are practising in the field of mental health. This is to ensure that clients receive professional, and ethical services and that the professional continuously improve their skills and training, allowing them to offer more value to their clients.
At ICPC, we offer counselling supervision, training and development for individuals and groups. In this setting, the professional can discuss their work, explore skills that may benefit the established treatment goals and understand feelings that may come up during sessions. ICPC has offered supervision to psychology students at the Master’s level, counsellors in the school and community setting, mental health professionals in hospital and clinical settings and government institutions and human resources personnel in the corporate setting.
In supervision, three levels are usually attended to—these are the counsellor as the professional practitioner, the professional practitioner within a group or institutional practice and the personal world of the counsellor.
Client confidentiality is maintained at all times. The clients’ personal information is not revealed and all other information shared is under a contract that states that the information will be safeguarded within the supervision relationship.
If you have any questions regarding supervision, feel free to contact us and we would be happy to discuss your specific needs.
