About Grief Centre Professional Supervision

Grief Centre Professional Supervisors act as a mentors, providing emotional support as well as information and guidance. By appointing a Professional Supervisor you are actively keeping your clients and yourself safe, whilst providing a platform for your own professional development.

Whilst Professional Supervision is a legal requirement for anyone who is in a Counselling or Social Work role, it is also widely known to be a fundamental part of any one's professional development if they are dealing with clients or families in a loss and grief capacity. 

Professional supervision is recommended whether you are new to your role or highly experienced. All our professional supervisors are NZAC members. They can also provide independent review and assessment of students who are applying for a derived grade, under the category of trauma and misfortune.
