IAHIP maintains a register of Accredited Supervisors and considers supervision essential for ensuring quality of delivery of psychotherapy.  Supervision provides support, oversight and learning. It ensures an upholding of standards in practice and is

"...a regular, protected time for facilitated, in-depth reflection on practice"

(Bond & Holland, 1998: 5).

At the core of supervision is care for the client. Supervision is embedded in all IAHIP membership categories that involve client clinical practice.
