Supervision

As a self-regulating professional counselling association, one of the important values of ACCT is ensure our counsellors continue to develop compentency their entire professional careers. We want to stand shoulder to shoulder with counsellors affiliated with other counselling associations in following government regulations and the industry trends and best practices across Canada.

ACCT offers process-oriented supervision with experienced supervisors who are also experienced therapists, in both group and individual settings. Process-oriented supervision uses a counsellor’s awareness, their description of how they conceptualize their client’s issues, and their own personal experiences, to develop personal insights and enhance professional skills.

Supervision provides a framework within which a counsellor can offer an accounting, reflect on performance and receive feedback and or guidance.  Regular ongoing supervision is helpful for enhancing quality of service offered and continuing professional development and support. Supervision is beneficial for improved client care, effective self-care and career development.
