Creative Supervision Diploma

Trainers for this course: Jane and James Schindler-Ord

The next step for many counsellors and psychotherapists is to train to become a supervisor. Being a supervisor involves combining your knowledge and experience as a therapist with relevant supervision theories and practices. We also feel that it is important to bring your personality, your intuition and your creativity to your role as a supervisor to make it a wholesome and rewarding experience for you and your supervisees.

This course will provide you with the relevant theoretical base and practical skills to enable you to be an effective, professional supervisor. While we will teach you the theory and skills, we will also actively encourage you to develop your own style as a supervisor. 

Over 12 taught sessions, the course will equip you to support your supervisees through the many challenges that may emerge in supervision, and to explore the relationships that come into the room with creativity and professionalism.

The course is aimed at counsellors and psychotherapists who have sufficient experience to take on the role of a clinical supervisor, either as a lead counsellor in an agency, charity or organisation, or in independent practice. 

There is a requirement to complete at least 18 hours as a supervisor during the course (or within one year after the end of the training). You will also be expected to be in supervision yourself.

We are in the process of accrediting this Diploma with NCS (National Counselling Society) as an Advanced Specialist Diploma in Creative Supervision, and will then be able to apply this title to this course retrospectively.
