Clinical supervision throughout the professional life of music therapists is essential. This paper emphasizes the benefits of Analytical Music Therapy- Oriented Supervision (AMTOS) within the context of Asian cultures. The AMTOS is designed to meet the need for continual growth on the part of the supervisee. This includes increasing self-awareness, nurturing the inner music and freeing creative energy of the supervisee, while also helping to manage culture-related countertransference, maintain his/her ‘psychohygiene’ (Jahn-Langenberg, 2001), and demonstrate the use of music as a selfhealing mode. In developing my supervision model, I have been influenced and my personal experience with AMT training (Priestly,1975; 1994), and my experience both as a clinical supervisor and an academic supervisor.
