Clinical supervision allows mental health professionals to reflect on the therapeutic process including the dynamics of the client-therapist relationship. It may prove to be an important diagnostic exercise and help to establish the direction for further treatment.

At a latter stage, supervision is vital in working through difficult moments in the course of therapy. Supervision is useful for psychologists, psychotherapists as well as other mental health professionals working in a therapeutic relationship.

Clinical supervision can take on the form of a regular or an one-of engagement.
