Supervision

General Introduction

What is Supervision?

Supervision is a formal arrangement for Counsellors / Psychotherapists to discuss their work regularly with someone who is experienced in Counselling / Psychotherapy and Supervision.

The task is to work together to ensure and develop the efficacy of the Counsellor / Psychotherapist / Client relationship. The agenda will be the Counsellor / Psychotherapist’s work, with the Supervisor’s reactions and comments. Supervision is a process to maintain adequate standards of  Counselling / Psychotherapy and a method of consultancy to widen the horizons of the practitioner.

Why Supervision?

Supervision is seen by the IACP as vital to the process and ongoing maintenance of a Counsellor / Psychotherapist’s competency and continued accreditation.

All IACP Members working as Counsellor / Psychotherapists are bound by the IACP Code of Ethics and Practice to monitor their work through regular Supervision, to ensure that their standard of Counselling / Psychotherapy is competent and continues to develop.

Timeframe for statutory registration

 

Draft regulations to designate the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and to establish a registration board will be ready for submission to the Houses of the Oireachtas for their approval during the present session, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has told the Dail.

 

The Minister recently concluded a public consultation on  his proposal to regulate counsellors generally under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.

 

On foot of the consultation process, He has decided to proceed with the designation of two distinct professions under the Act, that of counsellor and psychotherapist. Each will have its own register under one registration board. This decision has been communicated to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council, the relevant professional bodies and all the respondents to the public consultation process.

 

Subject to the approval of the Houses, the next step will be the appointment of the 13 members of the registration board, following the submission of suitable candidates for the Minister's consideration, by the Public Appointments Service. The aim is that the registration board will be in a position early in the New Year to begin the task of drafting the various bye-laws to allow it to establish its registers.
