Supervision is a working alliance between a supervisor and a therapist in which the therapist can offer an account of their work, reflect upon it, explore intervention and process and receive the observations of the supervisor. The aim of this alliance is to enable the therapist to develop their practice in an ethical, confident and creative way, so as to be able to give the best emotional and therapeutic support to their clients.
Supervision can be on an individual or small group basis. After an initial consultation psychotherapy or dramatherapy supervision may be offered, or an integration of the two approaches offering the therapist to explore their work verbally, cognitively and creatively.
