Emily Stanley Counselling Professional Supervision

Professional (Clinical) Supervision

Professional supervision provides a space for workers to reflect on any aspect of their work, or issues impacting on their work. In keeping with my overall practice framework, individuals attending will set the pace and agenda for supervision.

While I offer a general professional supervision service, I have a strong interest in providing clinical supervision to those working in the area of Eating Issues/Disorders, new graduates entering the field, and peer/lived-experience workers.


$170 for a 1 hour Professional Supervision session.


In my previous role at Eating Disorders Queensland (EDQ) as senior practitioner, I provided weekly to monthly supervision for a multidisciplinary team of staff, including counsellors, psychologists, social workers, peer/lived experience workers and volunteers. Providing support to practitioners in the team was one of my favourite and most rewarding aspects of the role. 

I am a regular field placement supervisor for students on placement with the University of Queensland's Masters of Counselling and Bachelor of Psychology degrees. These experiences have led to a passion in supporting workers as they transition from student to professional.


My work with the University of Queensland ensures I am keenly aware of the theory and learnings which new graduates enter the workforce with and believe it is so important that support and guidance is offered during this process of putting theory into practice and navigating this new part of your professional journey.

What to expect
  • Appointments tend to go for 1hr, however longer sessions can be arranged at request (additional fees apply). 

  • Most practitioners find regular sessions are most beneficial- such as monthly or fortnightly. However, this is your choice based on your needs, registrations body requirements and budget.

  • Sessions can be booked as a one-off/irregular appointment.

Workers might use external professional supervision for the following means:

  • Discussing challenging and complex client issues

  • Debriefing after critical incidents and receiving support  

  • Exploring professional issues relating to career direction, enhancing existing skills and knowledge, and further study/training opportunities.

  • Self-care and personal well-being, including strategies and skills for improving work-life balance
