I view supervision as a gift.  I was taught very early in my academic career the importance and necessity of good supervision.

But supervision does not have to be limited to those with license requirements!

I have been part of a wonderful supervision group for years, which includes therapists, SE trauma informed body workers, physical therapists, herbalists, sound healers, spiritual teachers, and more!  We discuss clinical issues as well as issues with running businesses, but we also pay great attention to how each of our work affects ourselves as practitioners and as individuals.  I am excited to begin "growing" this type of group in NH.

Individual Supervision also available

Why would I choose a supervisor when I already participate in peer supervision?

I like peer supervision.  But personally, I find peer supervision often lacks the structure and commitment I prefer.  I also prefer group supervision to be a combination of struggles and empowerment.  Many times in peer supervision, because of time constraints and work overload, it can be a place to vent and get some support, but does not balance it with self care and personal reflection.  Because I find this balance so helpful, I wish to create that space for others.

Understanding Supervision Terms in Mental Health

What is clinical supervision?

Supervision is a term that therapists use to define what type of support they receive while learning and practicing their profession.  But just because supervision is required for therapists, it does not mean it does not have benefits that everyone can access.

When a student is getting their Masters degree in a psychology based field, they are require a certain amount of supervision hours.  This is one on one time with a licensed therapist to discuss ethical issues, cases, and brainstorm.

When a student has graduated and is working toward licensure, they are required to have more supervision hours.

After a therapist has their license, each state has different requirements to maintain a license.  One requirement is on-going supervision.

Supervision can be provided within a job or internship.  Other times, especially for those in private practice or at the head of their agency, outside supervision is obtained.

Peer supervision: a group of licensed professionals meet (without a designated supervisor of the group) and provide support, feedback, and resource info to each other.

Group supervision: a group of licensed professionals or pre-license therapists meet, under the guidance of a designated "supervisor."  While the group provides support and feedback to each other, the supervisor is responsible for the structure and dynamics, as well as ethical responsibilities (outlined by their Board of Mental Health in their state.)

Individual supervision: one on one meetings with a licensed professional, either pre-license or post.  When pre-license, the supervisee practices with guidance under the license of the supervisor.  For licensed practitioners seeking supervision, the supervisee practices under their own license, but the supervisor has some responsibility, but not full responsibility, as outlined by the Board and codes of ethics.

* Note: In New Hampshire, supervisors take a specific workshop and are listed on the Board of Mental Health's list of Approved Supervisors.
