Introduction by Francesca Inskipp and Brigid Proctor

“This excellent book will be especially useful for anyone thinking of becoming a supervisor, or for those who have already started out on that journey ... I can see it becoming a classic text for supervision training courses.”
James Rye,|BACP Private Practice Journal Spring 2015

“An invaluable reference tool for all supervisors ... it contains gems of useful general guidance ... so packed with goodies that taking it all in is daunting in one go! ... I recommend it without reservation to all those undertaking supervision.”
Prof. Martin Johnson,|University of Cambridge

“I enjoyed this book. It is well structured, very accessible and, as the title suggests, practical, both for new and experienced supervisors. I particularly valued the frequent reflection points which encourage and challenge the reader to apply the text to their own practices.”

"Supervision training courses need to give a priority to helping trainee supervisors explore and address supervisees’ behaviour when it is problematic, without attacking the self-worth of the person. This is easier said than done, but practice means that it can be done, and that is a very valuable achievement for the individuals and the profession."
