This qualification is designed to give learners the knowledge, skills and competencies to work as a supervisor to counsellors, therapists and others working in helping professions. 

The course is based on Hawkins and Shohet's Seven Eyed Process Model, although we also draw upon the development and relational approaches to supervision. The course teaches the wide variety of theories and competencies needed to be a safe and effective supervisor including working with authority in the supervisory relationship, transference, what makes supervision effective, working with supervisee's needs while taking a cross-modal approach so that you can work with supervisees from various theoretical approaches.

This course is accredited by CPCAB and is assessed internally via a reflective journal and assignments.  It will be assessed externally by CPCAB via a case study you will write on a supervisee you have worked with. You will need to have completed at least 450 hours of counselling practice and have completed levels 2-4 in counselling training before enrolling. We strongly suggest that you will have completed level 5 too.

The course will teach you to:

  • To work safely, legally and ethically as a supervisor

  • To work with implicit aspects of the supervisory and counselling relationship

  • To work with awareness of differences in the supervisory relationship

  • To work with the needs of the supervisee in your practice

  • To develop your self-awareness as a supervisor

  • To use theory, research and skills in the supervisory relationship

  • To work self reflectively as a supervisor

We look forward to welcoming you onto the course soon!
