Professional supervision

Professional Supervision service in Brisbane Queensland

LifeCare’s Director, Susan De Campo provides supervision for trainee and experienced practitioners working within counselling, psychotherapy, and helping professions. Supervision enables the supervisee to review his/her practice with clients; encourages the process of self-awareness and self-learning which results in ongoing ethical and clinically or professionally viable practice.

Supervision is mandatory for membership with professional governing bodies and is vital for anyone who works in Human Services or the so-called Helping Professions. It exists to protect clients/consumers, to improve professional knowledge and ability and to monitor self-care for the helping professional.

From 2021, Susan is offering a new professional supervision service for practitioners working in non-counselling workplaces. She has thought, for many years now, that practitioners who work in the family law space experience many of the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue, workplace stress and burnout. Professional supervision is an evidence-based strategy that can support practitioners to manage the inherent stressors of working with this cohort of clients.

Susan is accredited through the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia and is a Clinical member of the Australasian Association of Supervisors. She also holds post-graduate qualifications in clinical ethics and is an Ethics Panel member with PACFA.

Life caring thoughts

So, here it is. This blog will provide regular commentary on various aspects of Susan’s work.
