Continued Growth and Learning, Expertise and Knowledge
When you pay a therapist, you are also paying for the types of continuing education they choose to get and what they decide to maintain current training in.
When you hire a consultant and supervisor, you want to know that they have experience in training on the topic you're seeking knowledge on and hopefully hold the identities that they're training on.
