Level 6 OCN London course in counselling supervision
This course is open to all counsellors trained to diploma level (level 4) in any modality, with at least two years’ post qualification experience and 450 hours of supervised client hours (including those gained whilst a student counsellor), who are receiving supervision for a minimum of 1.5 hours per month, a member of a counselling professional body and have attended our one-day workshop 'Reflective Practice in Counselling Supervision' at any point in the last three years - we can arrange for you to attend this training in a small group with Stephan, our trainer, before our course starts in September if you have not already attended it, as the workshop has already been held earlier this year. Please don't let this put you off enquiring about the course.
This course aims to provide a clear and relevant understanding of the professional knowledge and skills needed to be an effective counselling supervisor within the changing and diverse environment of present-day counselling psychology.
The course will incorporate the key counselling supervision skills highlighted in the BACP counselling supervision curriculum framework so that learners are able to effectively build their practice in counselling supervision in line with the current expectations of the profession.
In addition, it will also actively engage participants with the BACP ethical framework and apply it to best practice in counselling supervision.
Using both theory and practical activities, the course will encourage individual and group learning and will be ideal for those who recognise the importance of experiential and practical learning.
Participants will be expected to take responsibility for their own learning. Our facilitator will use communicative education techniques throughout, and participants must be willing to engage with all the group members during all group activities to further advance all participants' learning, as practice time is built into every session and assessment is carried out throughout the course.
Whilst a course guide will be provided on day one, and a workbook will be provided for each session, alongside recommended reading, the title of each day is given below.
