Clinical practice is enriching in many ways. As we help our clients grow and guide them on the journey to be their best self, we also go through a process of growth and self-development. This process, at times, can be exhausting and painstaking. Working towards being a psychologist or psychotherapist has its own obstacles, just like having your private practice. Either way, stress, uncertainty, lack of planning and daily life hassles can get in our way of performing at our best, and put us out of balance.
For all these reasons, sometimes it is necessary to have some tools to put ourselves back in balance, as well as having a supervisor who can share insights and help us constantly improve to increase our effectiveness in helping our clients and be on top of your game!
With the help of the psychologist, your personal needs are identified and a customized plan is designed. In specific circumstances, clinical supervision can involve counselling, career consultation, conflict resolution, crisis intervention and problem solving. Supervision hours for Ordre de psychologues du Québec (OPQ) are also offered.
With an integrative approach, our goal is to address multiple areas of your life and enrich your learning experience. Since doing clinical practice is an ongoing process, the approach is process focused rather than result-oriented. Psycho-education is an essential approach we use, as well as sharing past experiences and offering insight.
The ultimate goal of clinical supervision is to identify the obstacles impeding your growth and address them directly. It is expected that you learn organizational skills, stress coping resources, and how to identify problematic situations and tackle them properly. After all we want you to have an improved quality of life and have a good harmony between your practice and daily life.
