     Supervision can offer a professional place for supervisees to recharge batteries, release the emotional charge of client work and attend to self-care. Supervision is regarded as, …….“A healthy, self-respecting, mature process founded on self-awareness, self-compassion and sometimes consultation with “trusted other””

    A Different Wisdom, Reflections on A Supervision Practice, Penny Henderson (2009)


“ Supervision is the joint exploration of material presented by the Supervisee. It involves the recognition that each party in supervision has different types of knowledge and experience (so that the Supervisee has greater knowledge of the client than the Supervisor, even if the Supervisor may have greater experience of therapy than the Supervisee); and it rests on the belief that despite large areas where there is little knowledge, in the dialogue of supervision itself there is always the possibility of greater understanding.”
