Professional Health Psychology Clinical Supervision Services

 

We offer Professional Health Psychology Clinical Supervision Services that are designed to provide qualified Health Psychologists and Healthcare Professionals with high quality, supportive, reflective time to improve the efficacy and safety of their practice. We are currently supervising professionals at all levels of their career from newly qualified, early career and at Consultant level/ Head of Department - across all sectors of healthcare. For example, NHS Bariatric and Chronic Pain Psychology Services, Smoking Cessation Services, Public Health Commissioning/Strategy within local authorities and independent practitioner health psychologists.

 

We define Clinical Supervision as  “a formal process of professional support and learning which enables individual practitioners to develop knowledge and competence, assume responsibility for their own practice and enhance the public protection and safety of care in clinical situations”.  

 

We expect the supervisory relationship to be collaborative and grounded in professional respect, giving an open working environment with which to promote personal and professional appraisal, reflection and critical analysis of client caseload, standards of practice and the challenges and ethics of working within the healthcare sector and with multi-discplinary teams.

 

Supervision from an appropriately qualified and experienced applied Practitioner Psychologist (the same as your registration title) is required to ensure that you continue to meet the HCPC Standards of Proficiency and Fitness to Practice Guidance on a year by year basis and that you can demonstrate if required (e.g. following a complaint)  that you have the ability to ensure safe and effective clinical and applied research practice through regular reflective practice.  Furthermore the British Psychological Society Professional Practice Guidance outlines the critical role of clinical supervision for safe practice and lifelong CPD and learning.
