Supervisor Membership

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.

In order to become an IAHIP Accredited Supervisor you must have met the following criteria:

  1. be an accredited member of IAHIP

  2. have five years of experience in supervised practice as a psychotherapist, after their accreditation by IAHIP or by an equivalent organization acceptable to IAHIP

  3. maintain a psychotherapy practice which they pursue from a humanistic and integrative perspective

  4. have delivered a minimum of 1200 hours of post-accreditation psychotherapy work

  5. have successfully completed a supervision training course that meets the criteria specified from time to time by IAHIP.  (See clause 3 of Bye-Law 5c)

  6. have had at least 1 year’s experience of giving supervision to a minimum of 50 hours, including at least 12 hours one-to-one supervision with the same supervisee

  7. be currently supervising no fewer than 2 individual supervisees

  8. provide a comprehensive Supervisor’s Report attesting to the quality and quantity of the applicant’s supervisory work and confirming also that the applicant maintains a psychotherapy practice

  9. provide evidence that they currently have appropriate insurance cover for both the psychotherapy and supervision work they are doing
