Clinical Supervision for Qualifying and Registered Psychotherapists, Interns

At Valley Connections Counselling we provide Clinical Supervision to mental health professionals and counselling/psychotherapy students completing internship placements.

 Our Clinical Supervision is provided by two of our staff who are both recognized as supervisors with the CRPO:

  • Executive Director, Amanda Youssef, MEd, RP, CCC, who has over 13,000 hours of clinical experience as well as 5 years of experience as a Clinical Supervisor of Interns, Registered Psychotherapists, MSW's, CYW's, and other Mental Health professionals.
  • Intern/Clinical Supervisor, Kiara Panetta, MA, RP, who has been practicing as a Registered Psychotherapist since 2017 after completing her internship at Valley Connections Counselling.  Kiara is now Valley's primary Intern supervisor and also provides individual, dyadic, and group supervision to Qualifying Registered Psychotherapists.

The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) requires that Qualifying Psychotherapists obtain a minimum of 1 hour of clinical supervision for every 4 to 5 hours of direct client contact hours. Once registered with the CRPO as a Registered Psychotherapist (RP), the CRPO requires that RP's obtain 1 hour of clinical supervision for every 10 direct client contact hours until 1000 client contact hours have been reached. At least 50% of these hours must be obtained in individual or dyadic format.
