Clinical supervision is an integral part of professional health care practice. Clinical supervision is a process where two health professionals collaborate to review and critically reflect on clinical practice. The primary purpose of clinical supervision is to improve practice, skills, and ethical awareness.
Veriti is committed to an alliance based model of supervision that is open, honest, non-hierarchical, respectful, collaborative and constructive. At Veriti we believe clinical supervision is a confidential process* between clinical supervisor and supervisee. Veriti supports a clinical supervision agenda driven by the needs of the supervisee. All clinical supervision involves the development of a written working agreement outlining the supervisee’s goals and expectations as well as arrangements regarding time, location, duration and evaluation of supervision.
Veriti Directors have significant experience in the development and delivery of clinical supervision programs and are well placed to meet your individual organisations’ needs. Contact us to find out more about clinical supervision models/programs and how we can assist your organisation to develop and support staff.
Veriti has trained and experienced clinical supervisors available who offer both individual and group supervision at competitive prices. Veriti will arrange a telephone consultation for you with our supervision coordinator, Gerry Mullan, to discuss your supervisory needs, and identify appropriate, available supervisors in your area. While Veriti is based in Brisbane, we can also offer telephone and Skype options to supervisees, wherever they are based. Contact us to learn more about our clinical supervisory process and to arrange a telephone consultation.
“I have been to clinical supervision with Cathy for the past 5 years and it has been a great catalyst for the development of my knowledge, skills and attitudes in my various roles as mental health nurse. This supervision has also helped with my motivation to develop my knowledge and confidence to take on the more challenging roles that I have had since this supervision began. Cathy’s supervision has allowed me to clarify and focus on the obvious factors I often miss in the sometimes chaotic role of the mental health nurse. She has regularly pointed me in some directions for learning that I would not have otherwise considered. I highly recommend supervision with Cathy if you wish to expand your practice and career. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding mental health care and an excellent ability to enhance the knowledge of others.”

“Barb Bowler has been my mental health nursing supervisor for the past six years and I highly recommend her supervison services. Barb’s professional knowledge and manner has greatly assisted the development of my ability to critically reflect on, evaluate, and improve my nursing practice, and increased my confidence to take on different and more challenging roles. Barb has a strong focus on ethical practice and has been invaluable for my learning how to clarify and manage difficult situations with conflicting pulls. Barb is thorough and proactive in her supervision, but also easy to relate with, and she always discusses my concerns and responds to my questions and reflections in a professional, friendly manner. Barb’s supervision and encouragement has been invaluable in assisting me to expand my practice and knowledge of mental health care. I feel completely confident in recommending her supervision services.”
