Satisfy your legal practising requirements and improve your skills, with ongoing clinical supervision. At Bayside, we provide regular ad-hoc clinical supervision for counsellors, hypnotherapists and psychotherapists. Regardless of the clinical method you practice, a psychoanalytic formulation can assist you to understand your patients in deeper ways and assist with your direction of their treatment.

Counsellors, hypnotherapists and psychotherapists require ongoing clinical supervision. Not only to meet relevant practicing requirements. The support of quality supervision is a crucial part of becoming an elegant therapist.

There is supervision and personal therapy. Both are vital to being effective with a wide range of distressed people. If you are looking for individual counselling supervision in Melbourne, we can help. If you can’t get to Melbourne, we can even have sessions online, via skype.

The proprietor of Bayside Psychotherapy (Adam Szmerling) provides a unique blend of Eastern and Western counselling, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy methods. This in turn also informs how he supervises other clinicians.

In our experience supervising other therapists, an alignment of philosophies about change seems to be really crucial:

Empathy, unconditional positive regard and deep listening are but some skills necessary for any therapist. Adam can help you develop these with various mindfulness practices and case discussions. He also thinks psychoanalytically. Regardless of the clinical method you practice, a psychodynamic formulation can assist you to understand your patients in broader and deeper ways.

If you are interested in improving your clinical skills and integrating mindfulness and psychotherapy, please get in touch.

Whether you are a new or experienced therapist wanting help with difficult cases, please call us on 03 9557 9113 to enquire about our clinical supervision process.
