This Master‘s of Education final project addressed the relevance of informed consent within the therapeutic relationship in great detail and outlined the importance of its presence within the supervisor–supervisee relationship in order to uphold ethical integrity when delivering supervisory services to provisional psychologists in Canada. As informed consent is imperative in the counselling process and often overlooked in the supervisory one, Appendix A of this project offers an informed consent form available for use as a working document for counselling supervisors. No specific theoretical perspective or intervention strategy was used in the formulation of the informed consent form, thereby allowing future users to tailor the working document to fit their supervisory method and process. Areas of future research were addressed to enhance the ethical practice of supervision through integration of a formal consent form.
