`It is a fairly well established clich[ac]e that while supervision is recognised as a crucial component of good practice in psychotherapy and counselling, there is correspondingly little written about it... [this book is] a good step in redressing the balance... It is a practical, didactic and generic view of how to do supervision... giving a fairly comprehensive account of 30 of the formal skills that all supervisors probably use whether consciously or not... The book discusses each of the skills, giving examples as well as practical suggestions as to how to approach difficult issues... directed principally at counsellors, it is a book to dip into when faced with a panic about a specific issue' - Therapeutic Communities





Supervision is a professional and ethical necessity for all counsellors, providing them with consultative and supportive aid while protecting clients from potential abuse - yet relatively little has been written on the subject. This volume aims to redress that balance.





Encouraging, yet sensitive to the difficult issues that frequently arise in supervision, the book contains practical suggestions, plus useful appendices, to help practising and trainee supervisors develop and enhance the skills they need to be successful in their work. The authors cover such key areas as creating a supervisory alliance, fostering the supervisory relationship, the use of tape-recording, highlighting supervisees' strengths and weaknesses, and protecting the client and counsellor.

`This is a very useful book... At a time when counselling supervision is being widely addressed, the authors have made a useful addition to the British literature... Their book offers valuable information on supervisory practice for supervisors at the start of their careers, and in a systematic way works through the issues that need addressing and which can occur in a supervisory relationship. It will also have some value to more experienced supervisors as a reference to areas that can be overlooked over a period of time in practice... I enjoyed the clarity with which it was written and the very comprehensive coverage' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling



`A useful book that will assist in the development of counsellor supervision. Detailed discussion and exploration of issues involved in the British Association for Counselling Code of Ethics and practice for the supervision of counsellors is very useful, with excellent summaries of key points highlighted in boxes. The book focuses with great clarity on exploring the boundaries between personal therapy, supervision and training, with good case studies illustrating some of the dilemmas... I recommend this book' - Childline Newsletter





`Full of interesting key topics' - The Psychologist
