CPCAB Level 6 Certificate in Counselling Supervision
The qualification is regulated and awarded by the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) and is designed to give learners the knowledge, skills and competencies to provide clinical supervision for counselling practitioners. It is aimed at counsellors who have acquired sufficient client work experience to contemplate the move into a clinical supervision role.
The qualification is designed to lead to an employed or voluntary role as a clinical counselling supervisor in a counselling agency or in independent practice. Supervision is an on-going professional requirement for all practising counsellors and those with a recognised qualification are more likely to find employment.
The theoretical orientation of the qualification is Pluralistic (Cooper & McCleod, 2007), which is a collaborative, integrative perspective, deeply rooted in Humanistic and Person-centred values. Its fundamental premise is that each client is unique, and therefore may need different things from therapy. This same concept can be applied to the supervisory relationship and allows for a responsive and fluid approach to supervisee needs.
Taught by Jenny Trevethan and Malachy Dunne, both of whom bring many years of successful teaching, counselling and supervisory experience this will be a dynamic and experiential course offering participants the opportunity to step confidently into the workplace, whether in an agency or in private practice.
The course will be offered one weekend a month over eight months commencing in September 2019. Places will be offered subject to an interview process. Register your interest below.
