Diploma in integrative supervision: starting March 2016

This training offers counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists and those in the helping professions the opportunity to develop therapeutic supervisory skills. The course is run on a multi-modal, multi-disciplinary basis. We recognise that nowadays supervisors may be supervising practitioners from different theoretical backgrounds from their own, particularly in organisational contexts. So our approach in this training is integrative – including a range of models and supervision concepts – while upholding the existing framework and background of each course participant.
