Clinical Supervision Service

The clinical supervision service aims at enhancing clinical competences and professional development of social workers and related practitioners who are dedicated in working with individuals, couples and families in their own counseling practice.


With a competency-based approach to clinical supervision, our clinical supervision emphasizes a focus on identifying and appreciating the unique qualities, clinical experiences and competence level, and resources of supervisees. The development of a secure, trusting, and effective working alliance between supervisor and supervisee is particularly important. The supervisor and supervisee collaboratively build mutual agreement about the goals, scopes, learning focus, and methods of supervision. It is expected to strengthen supervisee’s development of theoretical framework, conceptual and perceptual abilities, intervention skills, and self reflection on one’s work with clients in their counselling practice.


In response to the learning styles and training needs of supervisees, there is a continuous, developmental, supervisory feedback process about supervisees’ levels of skills, and training needs over predictable stages of competency development. The supervisory process is experiential, participatory, relational-focused, reflective and educational wherein learning and professional growth occur.
