The practice of clinical supervision amongst mental health practitioners is hampered by a lack of shared understanding of its nature and purpose and by a complex mixture of assumptions and external expectations. As a result, potential benefits of supervision are diminished and its practice risks losing credibility amongst those in a position to resource it. This study addresses these conflicts through an analysis of the discourse of supervision within mental health nursing, counselling and clinical psychology.
