12 Questions to Ask A Supervisor

Motivo wants to help you find the right supervisor, not just the one closest by.

Here are twelve questions we recommend asking a potential supervisor.

  • What type of clients do you do your best work with?
  • Do you utilize any particular modalities with clients? If so, can you tell me more about how you incorporate the modality into your work?
  • Why did you choose to become a supervisor?
  • How many people have you supervised?
  • How would your supervisees describe your approach to supervision?
  • How will you challenge me to become a better therapist?
  • How will we incorporate self-of-the-therapist work in our supervision?
  • Logistically, what days/times are you available for supervision?
  • How should I handle questions that come up between sessions, in both emergency and non-emergency situations?
  • How often will we review the licensure requirements in my state to ensure I am on track?
  • Has your license ever been suspended or revoked by a state board?
  • How many supervision hours can I anticipate collecting with you each month?
