Find a supervisor

When looking for a supervisor it is best to find a practitioner who is trained and/or experienced in supervision.

The Anglican Church Southern Queensland currently requires supervisors to be a member of one of the professional bodies listed below.

Membership of these bodies provides the supervisee with some assurance of supervisor training,  professionalism and accountability*.

The Anglican Church Southern Queensland will continue to seek out additional accreditation bodies to provide clergy and lay ministers with greater choice and flexibility in selecting a supervisor. 


Questions to ask potential supervisors:
  • What are your qualifications and experience with supervision?

  • What is your approach to supervision?
  • Have you supervised ministers of religion before?
  • What is your attitude towards people of faith and how does this influence your supervision?
  • What is your fee per session?

Search for a supervisor

A good supervisor will be able to:
  • Listen well and be truly present with the supervisee.
  • Show warmth and empathy.
  • Be non-judgemental and non-critical.
  • Have an understanding of and respect for the vocation and ministry of the supervisee.
  • Be willing to learn about the supervisee’s ministry context.

* Membership of these bodies does not guarantee a supervisor’s efficacy. Supervisees are encouraged to investigate for themselves a supervisor’s suitability and fit for them.
