Our courses will teach you how to use creativity in a supervision session. For example, our unique research-based Certificate in Creative Supervision uses play to explore clinical supervision models. This creative approach is based specifically on Emma Steadman’s ongoing PhD research. It also draws on Emma’s fifteen years of therapy and supervision practice.
These counselling supervision training courses are suitable for counsellors, play therapists and psychotherapists who are working with children, young people and adults. Professionals from other mental health, social work and education settings are also welcome to apply
Emma will also be running a new course called Minding the Gap. This is a day’s introduction to the knowledge skills and approach needed to work as a school counsellor. It will take place in Colchester and Ealing. There will also be weekend courses using sandplay, art, music and meditation, as well as group supervision weekends.
We want to protect the joy and keep the faith in supervisory practice
Our supervision trainings are therefore designed as CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses for post qualifying counsellors and psychotherapists. Final stage counselling and psychotherapy students are also welcome to apply. Although you are not peer assessed, we encourage a reflective approach in group work and supervision sesions.
All our teachers work as BACP or UKCP supervisors in counselling centres or schools. In addition, all are working as counsellors seeing children, adolescents and adults, and working to BACP Ethical Standards.
