Practitioners in the helping professions use sessions with a supervisor to discuss their work, help them continue to develop and grow, and to explore issues and dilemmas. Supervisors provide both support for the practitioner and quality control for the benefit of the end client. The practice of supervision is mandatory for psychologists and psychotherapists. It is optional and therefore less common for coaches and mentors.
