Competency-based Clinical Supervision

Dr. Elisabeth Scheepers provides Competency-based Clinical Supervision to counselling therapists/psychotherapists across Canada. 

Elisabeth is recognized as a certified supervisor by two national counselling associations: The Canadian Professional Counsellors Association (CPCA) and the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT).


Elisabeth is an approved practicum supervisor for the Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) program of Yorkville University.       

Scheepers-CCC is research based and outcome informed. This means that during all supervision services, evidence of the efficacy of approaches based on research, and based on client practice will be discussed. 

A competency-based framework is used in clinical supervision. Scheepers-CCC offers four types of supervision services:

  • Individual Competency-based Clinical Supervision is one-on-one and either 60 minutes or 90 minutes in duration.
  • Dyadic Competency-based Clinical Supervision is similar to individual supervision, with the one difference that two well-matched supervisees attend the supervision session. The advantages include that both can learn from each other when discussing client cases.
  • Clinical Group Supervision is a 120-minute service, provided in a small group format and focuses on the many competencies in the field of Clinical Counselling. 
  • Case Consultation is a 60-minute service during which participants gain experience in presenting cases, and provide and receive feedback. 

*The format for supervision services is Zoom video-conferencing. Supervisees residing locally have the option to attend individual supervision in-person.

During group Clinical Supervision the following topics will be addressed: 

  • Industry trends: National and Provincial
  • Requirements of membership of professional organizations
  • Professional Development
  • Duty of Care
  • Legal responsibilities
  • The Clients' File and Record Keeping
  • Ethical Practice and Ethical Issues
