Supervision is a formal arrangement for therapists to discuss their work regularly with someone who is experienced in both therapy and supervision. The task is to work together to ensure and develop the efficacy of the therapist/client relationship. The agenda will be the therapy and feeling about that work, together with the supervisor’s reactions, comments and challenges. Thus supervision is a process to maintain adequate standards of therapy and a method of consultancy to widen the horizons of an experienced practitioner. In choosing a supervisor, therapists need to assess their position on a scale ranging newly qualified to very experienced, to decide the main focus of the therapy work undertaken and to take into account their own training, philosophy and methods. The setting for therapy may be an important factor.
