Advanced diploma in supervision
This advanced diploma training is aimed at experienced counsellors and supervisors, who want to be able to supervise at a psychotherapeutic level.
This supervision course was developed as a result of a new approach to counselling. The course is fundamentally about ‘making meaning’; underpinned by attachment theory it integrates counselling theories from orientations including psychoanalytical, cognitive behavioural and humanistic schools (person-centred and transactional analysis).
It uses a multi-model framework for supervision (Proctor and Inskipp, Shohet and more) while being strongly influenced by Egan’s skilled helper. There is also a focus on group supervision and group dynamics.
