Supervision of supervision

Home / Support for services / Areas of expertise / Supervision of supervision

Having a reflective space to review one’s clinical supervision work is essential to the wellbeing of supervisors. It is also a principle of accountability and good practice. Supervision of supervision can take the form of individual supervision sessions between clinical supervisors and their own managers. The efficacy of this arrangement depends on the quality of the working alliance and on the senior manager's ability to distinguish between the roles of line manager and clinical supervisor and to avoid mixing them. Other options for supervision of supervision include:

  • Engaging the services of clinical supervisors external to the organisation
  • Supervision-of-supervision groups, facilitated by an external supervisor 
  • Peer supervision-of-supervision groups, in which clinical supervisors meet to review their work practices together, and to offer one another feedback and support
