Guidance for Supervisors

Advice on how to register as a supervisor is given below.

Examples of Supervisors:-

  • Senior members of eating disorders teams (Consultant Psychiatrists or Psychologists, Senior Occupational Therapists and Dieticians, Charge Nurses); or
  • Clinicians with specialised knowledge of eating disorders not necessarily working in specialist eating disorder services (for example in General Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services or in Psychotherapy Services).

Prospective supervisors can register online using this website but will have to submit a CV before being accepted. Supervisors may deliver the clinical supervision and provide the clinical experience or alternatively organise that this may be undertaken by a suitably qualified deputy for example they may approve a clinical placement in a different setting.

We recommend that supervisors and their supervisees complete our "Supervision Contract". In cases where the supervisor is not their usual line manager or where patients are accessed from a different service also the "accountability and responsibility" form.

 The following are the NES Supervision Guidelines for Nurses, Midwives and AHP's which supervisors may find useful : -
