Supervision's not a dirty word. :) My therapist is a great believer in ongoing supervision. Not only does he provide it for other therapists, but he belongs to a peer group that provides a sort of mutual supervision, or peer consultation or something. He says he hasn't sought help with my case recently, and that when he does, it's concentrated on *his* issues. I rather suspect that he sought supervision when he was having a bit of a personal reaction to my dependence, because he got a whole lot better with it more quickly than you might expect.

If a therapist's personal feelings are engaged by any particular client, another objective view of the situation keeps their feelings from obscuring their judgement.

It's not an extreme measure, and it's doesn't mean that anything is horribly wrong. It's just good clinical practice.
