A PRACTICE THAT MATTERS
Laura Bradley’s Clinical Supervision for Counsellors
Counselling supervision is strongly recommended for all counsellors. Your continued learning not only benefits you, but also benefits your clients.
Most counsellors require ongoing supervision or training to maintain their standing with their licencing board. As well, the province of British Columbia is moving towards a provincial regulatory board which will include supervision for all counsellors as part of the criteria for entry and to maintain good standing.
Laura Bradley coaches a variety of psychotherapists, counselors and psychologists on how to create a healthy private practice business. Laura has dual assets in people/therapeutic skills matched with a business background. With these skills, Laura has created a successful private practice. Steadfast Counselling is a place where relationships matter. Laura and her team of counsellors are passionate about helping people be fully engaged in their lives and their relationships. Evidence of Laura’s success can be found in her long-term alliances with companies and a long list of happy clients that refer their families and friends to her.
As a Registered Counselling Supervisor and Master Therapeutic Counsellor who has worked in the counselling field since 1992, Laura offers competency-based supervision for counsellors, including:
- Collaborative working environment

Counselling Supervision Sessions
During a supervision session, client files including session notes and treatment plans are reviewed.
- Review of client session tapes and/or progress notes,
- Discussion of sessions,
- Mutual problem solving, and
One-hour sessions are scheduled as needed. It’s recommended that this be a minimum of once a month to create consistency and build on each month’s experience.
Sessions are held once a month for a minimum of 2-4 hours.
Laura provides feedback throughout the supervision process and completes a Supervision Evaluation upon completion of supervision. Core competencies are reviewed in five general areas:
- Foundational Principles
- Collegial Relationships
- Professional Practice and Ethics
- Counselling Process
- Applied Research
