Supervision is a collaborative endeavour that cultivates the professional identity, competence and practice awareness between two or more mental health professionals
Andrea Groom


The nature of the supervisory relationship is one that is negotiated, developed and maintained through a collaborative, honest and accepting working alliance. This professional safe space allows the Supervisee to attune and develop their professional practice, clinical skills, self-confidence and relational style. Thus, enhancing their clinical practice, personal growth and development to the benefit of the client.

“I enjoy working with other professionals to help them equip themselves with the skills necessary to grow and optimise their full potential”
Andrea Groom — Psychologist
ca. April 8-15, 1979, Los Angeles, California, USA --- Psychotherapist Carl Rogers poses backstage at the 1979 World Symposium on Humanity, where he acted as keynote speaker. Rogers was one of the founders of humanistic psychology, which promotes a more person-to-person approach to the traditional therapist-patient relationship, and emphasizes the responsibility and intention in human behavior, as opposed to the more determinant ideas inherent in behaviorism and psychoanalysis. --- Image by © Roger Ressmeyer/CORBIS
“The more the therapist is him or herself in the relationship, putting up no professional facade, the greater is the likelihood that the client will change and grow”
