Professional clinical supervision is a supportive, educational, and therapeutic process where you can explore and enhance your knowledge and skills as a therapist and improve the way you work with your clients.
It is a supportive approach to discuss cases, provide objective feedback, and offer guidance based on your personal and professional needs. It presents an opportunity to learn and practise skills so you can maximise your performance as a therapist and feel more competent in your work.
For some therapists, especially students, the idea of clinical supervision can feel very daunting. To ease any concerns, during the initial session I provide a clear, supportive, and guided framework for you to ask questions, reflect on your supervision needs, and begin to explore any pressing issues.
Clinical Group Supervision - (by request)
Group supervision is a facilitated group that explores similar areas as individual clinical supervision. However, as a group this type of supervision provides new perspectives, learning opportunities, additional support, and networking opportunities.
Some people find that group supervision complements their individual sessions as it creates a space of increased learning and development – often around areas they didn’t know much about before.
My facilitated groups are small, personable, and usually consist of around four members. The length of the session is two hours to provide each member enough time to discuss their areas of concern and ask questions.
What is required from clinical supervision will vary from therapist to therapist and will depend on experience and practise.
If group supervision is something you may be interested in, please contact me to find out more.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Here are some comments past clients have shared
Kylie is a professional, empathic and knowledgeable supervisor who has an extremely practical approach to supervision. She offers a confidential, non-judgemental space full of compassion and useful strategies. Supervision is now something I look forward to because of Kylie’s wonderful abilities as a supervisor. Thank you for everything Kylie!
“I have benefitted immensely by seeing Kylie. The reason being as a year 2 student doing Christian Counselling, it is very new. There are many questions to ask which sometimes come from clients but also in my counselling.
I was able to get constructive feedback from Kylie.
I felt quite comfortable to ask any questions and was able to be transparent with her.”
“Kylie helped me with my empathy skills and would give me examples. When Kylie spoke, I felt warmth, genuineness and sincerity in her tone and the expression on her face.
Kylie is truly a dedicated Supervisor to help students especially just stepping out into the area of Counselling.”
“Learning to be a counsellor can at times be overwhelming; with the right supervisor this process can be smoother.
The benefits I find with having Kylie Lepri as my supervisor is her professional and compassionate way of modelling how to frame open-ended questions and responding with empathy to your client, this is extremely helpful.
Kylie has also been willing to help out with knowledge in regard to the practical considerations, as there is so much more to counselling than theory and counselling models. I also found Kylie flexible in her approach, to cater for individual learning styles. I have found Kylie to be a very professional and caring supervisor.”
