Competencies for Counsellors


In the interest of supporting you to grow into these core counselling competencies, as well as more deeply familiarize yourself with them, I invite you to evaluate yourself prior to beginning our supervision sessions .


I also invite you to complete this form after your year of supervision with me. I invite you to utilize this form to assess your current level of understanding. 


I will not rate your competency to any outside governing body. I simply invite you to honestly share how you would like to grow, celebrate where you are doing well, and pinpoint where you need to round out your learning through this confidential form so that we can nourish your competency in your supervision sessions.


Rating Scale:


5 = Clearly Outstanding

4 = Exceed Standard

3 = Meet Standard

2 = Below Expectation

1 = Unsatisfactory

NA = Not Applicable


I invite you to rate yourself using the scale above, and then share a bit of your personal experience in each area of competency in the form below. Please note that I offer suggestions for sharing to offer you a direct experience of the core competencies but feel free to be creative with your answers.


Note: Please fill out the fields marked with an asterisk.
