Certificate in Creative Counselling Supervision

Pretending to be a Unicorn; A Certificate in Playfull SupervisionTM

 

This is our full counselling supervision training. It is suitable for post qualifying counsellors, psychotherapists and play therapists. Professionals from a range of mental health, social work and education settings are also welcome.

 

The course is taught in four modules , spread over four months. It will be a small group, with never more than 10 students. This gives you one-to-one support and encouragement from the teacher Emma Steadman. The focus is on experiential creative learning, with lots of practical advice in a free, protected space.

 

“Don’t be silly, I’m not a real unicorn, I’m pretending to be a unicorn!”

 

This quote from a five-year old child captures the way that play enables us to stand back and explore different realities. Creative supervision uses play to facilitate a space which opens our hearts and minds. In clinical supervision the supervisee tunes into their client to see them from different perspectives. On this course, you will learn new ways of working with a client and develop confidence in the supervisory relationship.

Dates

We will be a small group of usually between 4 and 8 people and no more than 10. The counselling supervision course modules will run across 8 days consisting of two-day modules, each a month apart.

Benefits of this course:

The course integrates play and creativity with learning and supervision models

It has been informed by Emma’s ongoing PhD research, as well as more than 15 years of clinical supervision experience.

The modules incorporate BACP competencies for supervision training

 

The course will  integrate learning and supervision models with creative media such as sandplay, writing, art, music, puppets, and role-play. We will practice applying models whilst playing with a flow of creative media. For example, we will explore client-supervisee scenarios with sandplay, then use writing and role- play. We will teach you the learning and supervision approaches you need.
