As a counsellor, your commitment to helping others is unwavering. However, even the most experienced professionals need guidance and support in a field that demands continuous growth and adaptation. This is where supervision comes into play.

At Helps Counselling, supervision is offered by Rebecca Helps. Rebecca offers a range of supervision services tailored to meet the unique needs of ACCT counsellors and therapists. Whether you are just starting out or ready to build your practice and hours, our supervision programs can provide the support and insights you need to thrive in your practice.

Why Supervision Matters

Supervision is a crucial aspect of professional development for counsellors. It provides a structured environment where you can:

  • Enhance Your Skills: Regular supervision helps you refine your counselling techniques and stay updated with the latest practices in the field.
  • Receive Constructive Feedback: An experienced supervisor can offer valuable insights into your sessions, helping you identify strengths and areas for improvement.
  • Boost Client Retention: By improving your skills and confidence, you are more likely to build stronger, lasting relationships with your clients.
  • Manage Professional Challenges: Supervision offers a safe space to discuss difficult cases, ethical dilemmas, and personal challenges that may arise in your practice.
  • Maintain Professional Well-being: The emotional demands of counselling can be intense. Supervision provides the support you need to manage stress and prevent burnout.

Practical Tips for Improving Your Practice

To give you a glimpse of how supervision can be beneficial, here are some practical tips that we often discuss in our sessions:

  1. Reflective Practice: Regularly take time to reflect on your sessions. What went well? What could have been better? Reflective practice is a cornerstone of continuous improvement.
  2. Stay Updated: The field of counselling is always evolving. Engage in continuous learning through workshops, seminars, and reading current literature.
  3. Self-Care: Prioritize your well-being. Set boundaries, take breaks, and engage in activities that rejuvenate you. A well-rested counsellor is a more effective counsellor.
  4. Seek Peer Support: Engage with other counsellors. Sharing experiences and strategies can provide new insights and reduce feelings of isolation.
  5. Develop a Specialty: Consider specializing in a particular area of counselling. This can enhance your skills and make you a go-to expert in that niche.

Our Supervision Services

We understand that every counsellor has different needs and preferences. That's why we offer three distinct formats of supervision:

  1. Individual Supervision: Personalized one-on-one sessions tailored to your specific needs and goals. This format allows for deep, focused discussions on your cases and professional development.

  2. Dyadic Supervision: This involves two counsellors and one supervisor, providing a collaborative learning experience. Dyadic supervision fosters peer support and shared learning, enhancing your understanding through different perspectives.

  3. Group Supervision: Join a small group of counsellors in a supportive environment. Group supervision offers the opportunity to learn from others’ experiences, receive diverse feedback, and build a professional network.

Who Can Benefit?

Our supervision services are designed for all ACCT counsellors, but they are particularly beneficial for:

  • New Counsellors: If you’re starting your career, supervision can provide the guidance and confidence you need to establish a successful practice.
  • Experienced Counsellors Building Their Practice: Even if you have been in the field for a while, supervision can help you refine your skills, build your client base, and overcome any professional hurdles.
