Diploma in Supervision

Please note: Our June to December online course is now full.  We are holding a waiting list for any available places. The next course with spaces is January 2022. 

This very popular Supervision Diploma course is now in its 16th year and alongside our face to face course at Plumpton (when normal training resumes) we introduced an online version in 2021 which proved to be very popular.

We have trained a wide range of therapists across a range of modalities to facilitate professionals in supervisory relationships. This course is for those who want to enhance their practice by adding Supervision to their portfolio and supervising students and qualified professionals both from their own modality and across other modalities.

This course is for those who already have significant experience working as a practitioner within their field and want to further their career and qualify as a supervisor. The course is for participants from different approaches to learn how to supervise both within their own theory and across other theoretical modalities.  There will be opportunity to learn different theoretical ideas about supervision as well as to practice application with support and feedback from tutors and peers. This course is for those who want to learn and develop within a stimulating environment with peers and tutors who have many years of expertise in working as supervisors and trainers.

A range of topics will be on offer including the supervisory relationship, working ethically, differing models of supervision, philosophy of supervision, responsibility and others. For those that want to, this course will help to prepare you to apply to BACP accreditation as a supervisor.

“I attended the Supervisor’s course and couldn’t recommend it highly enough! It was full of examples, styles and theories,  yet more importantly there was ample opportunity for an excellent self reflective process. This enabled me to identify my supervisory style and what theories may suit me and more importantly my supervisees and their clients.  Anyone wanting a supervisor’s course couldn’t go wrong attending this one.” (Deborah Fields – July 2016)
