By Steve Page, Val Wosket
Supervising the Counsellor provides a comprehensive, accessible model of counsellor supervision in the UK. It meets the needs of the trained and experienced practitioner, as well as the supervision requirements of the student or trainee counsellor. Steve Page and Val Wosket explode the myth that an experienced counsellor necessarily makes a good supervisor and argue that training and development are essential for effective supervision.Using examples from their own diverse experience as practitioners, the authors provide a systematic and thoughtful account of counsellor supervision from its beginnings through to its emergence as a sophisticated tool of professional development. Readers looking for a supervisor will find here clear guidance on what to seek out and expect from competent supervision, while those about to move into or already engaging in supervision are provided with an excellent framework for organising and making sense of the supervision process.
