During an annual supervision you share your experiences with other confidential counsellors. By learning from one another you expand your skills and can act with more confidence in conflict situations or when a colleague asks for help. Moreover, as a confidential counsellor you are bound by law to attend continuing education at least once a year. After following continuing education you receive a valid continuing education certificate.
