Since Supervising the Counsellor was first published in 1994, the Cyclical Model of counselor supervision has been widely adopted as a comprehensive and effective framework for clinical supervision by training organizations and individual practitioners within the fields of counseling, psychotherapy, clinical psychology, and nursing throughout the UK. This expanded second edition contains a completely revised text, and includes important new material on a number of subjects, including group supervision, working with difference and diversity in supervision, supervising experienced practitioners.

Steve Page and Val Wosket provide readers with an original and accessible model that is designed to meet the needs of the trained and experienced practitioner, as well as the supervision requirements of the students of trainee therapist, arguing forcefully that training and professional development are essential for effective clinical supervision. Readers looking for a supervisor will find here clear guidance on what to seek out and expect from competent supervision, while those about to move into or already engaging in supervision are provided with an excellent framework for organizing and making sense of the supervision process.
