What is Supervision

Supervision supports provisionally licensed or licensed professional counselor associates by direct or indirect oversight and support from a more experienced provider or supervisor. To become licensed to practice, all mental health providers must complete a minimum number of therapy hours under supervision. The specific requirements vary depending on the license a therapist seeks and the state in which they practice. 

Supervision may also refer to ongoing consultation, teaching and support from other mental health professionals. This may include therapists or other provisionally licensed professionals in the same practice may consult with one another about difficult cases or regularly review one another’s work. In this context, supervision can sharpen a therapist’s diagnostic skills, encourage self-care, and help them provide better treatment.

Although some may be concerned for fees associated with supervision, these fees cover for administrative tasks associated with supervision, coaching, mentorship, expertise, teaching and support with the navigation of the counseling profession. Supervision also covers the time the supervisor spends monitoring every step you take as they vowed as a duty to protect. Supervisors also are at vicarious risk should the supervisee make a mistake whether ethical or just minor general board violations. Choosing the right supervisor will help ensure that you gain as much knowledge, experience and ethical support throughout your supervision experience. Always remember, fees don't always equate to quality so we encourage you to interview at least 2 other supervisors before signing on the dotted line.
