The growing effectiveness of telehealth as an alternative practice is gaining acceptance not only by professionals in the healthcare field but also by people who have benefited from this approach. New training and supervision practices are required to meet the new telehealth approach. Clinical supervision is a new profession identifying the competencies that define their best practices. However, telehealth is forcing us to evaluate and redefine them to meet the new telehealth requirements. This study used two assessments, the Supervisor competence self assessment and the supervisor evaluation and the Supervisor Competence Scale, to measure supervisors' self-evaluation of their performance as clinical supervisors and their recommendations based on their experience as supervisees. The results from testing of H1 revealed a positive relationship between the two assessments and the level of education, years of clinical supervision, and Telehealth counseling. Still, there is a negative relationship between these two assessments and the online training received in 2022.
