All healthcare providers, but especially those who work in Sexual Health, Pelvic Health and Sexology, need to work under supervision.
Up to now, we all had to arrange and pay for our own supervision, but MSH has developed a structure which will make clinical supervision easy for you to access and affordable.
We got together a team of Medical Doctors and Psychosexual Therapists, all with Masters' Degrees or PhDs in Sexual Health as well as the Pelvic Function Physiotherapists who have been a part of the MSH Team for ten years and have treated thousands of patients with sexual dysfunction.
What is Clinical Supervision?
Clinical supervision is a process that enhances growth and increases skills in a given profession, while building a trusting relationship between a supervisor and a supervisee.
What to Expect from MSH Clinical Supervision Sessions:
Supervision creates a safe space where you can ask you clinical questions to highly qualified and experiences supervisors, but it is more than that. In the process, you will receive emotional support, gain the soft skills of clinical practice, grow as a person and professional and learn how to practice ethically and safely.
MSH Clinical Supervision will provide you with the following:
Enhance your skills, competence and confidence to offer sex counselling and other sexual health services to patients/clients.
A reflective space and emotional support.
Professional development as a Sexual Healthcare Provider.
Guidelines to offer safe and ethical services to your patients/clients.
Ensure compliance with professional treatment standards and guidelines
During each session, you will present a clinical case that represents certain challenges for you. The supervisor will guide you through a process where you reflect on the clinical aspects of the case, address your challenges and bring you to a place where you are comfortable to treat the patient. The ethical aspects of the case and your emotional responses will be explored.
How many people will be in the group:
Each group will have no more than five individuals
The benefit of GROUP supervision is that we all learn from each other and become better clinicians in the process. It is also much more affordable to have group supervision than individual supervision.
How long are the supervision sessions:
Up to two hours
