What is Psychological Support?
Psychological support aims to help individuals gain and maintain a psychological well-being. It is the process of supporting the person in solving their individual or social problems. During this process, the therapist takes a supportive role, with an objective approach, without giving "advice" to the individuals so they can find the original solution and the cause of the problem. The content and length of the Psychological Support process varies from person to person.

What is Supervision?

In addition to specialist clinical psychologists, clinical psychology graduate program students conduct supervised interviews as part of their education. Supervision, which is an educational process, is the evaluation and exchange of ideas by educational level psychologists about their meetings with their professors. This educational process contributes to graduate students, who will major in the field of clinical psychology, by allowing them to benefit from the experience of experienced therapists and the psychological support process being evaluated by an expert eye.
