Ethically, supervision is expected regardless of your professional experience, and also required by most professional bodies including the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Each professional body will have their own requirement for the level of supervision undertaken but this is usually monthly as a minimum with supplementary supervision based on case load.
Supervision is the exploration of the therapy process and relationship, in order to provide greater insight and understanding, to oversee caseload and to ensure practice efficacy. Your career aspirations, issues and professional development will also be reviewed.
Supervision can be individual – yourself and a supervisor acting as a consultant or conducted in a group. Group supervision is with a supervisor and several others; each participant brings a case(s) for review and peers may also offer their individual insights. Group supervision is often a good way to supplement individual supervision if your case load is high and is generally more cost effective. Group peer supervision is where therapists reflect on each other’s work this can be a useful adjunct to your regular one to one supervision.
