University of Aberdeen

The course is designed for experienced person-centred counsellors (trained to diploma level) who are looking for an opportunity for professional and career development. This course may appeal to practitioners who wish to develop their supervision skills and their theoretical understanding of supervision in a way that is consistent with the person-centred approach. Counsellors who are new to supervision practice as well as those who have experience as supervisors may apply.
The aim of this course is that on completion participants will feel sufficiently competent and confident to enter into supervision contracts with experienced counsellors and counsellors-in-training within organisations, voluntary settings and private practice. Integral to this aim are the following:
• Participants will attain a clear theoretical understanding of the processes implicit in the person-centred approach to supervision.
• They will develop further their understanding of person-centred theory in particular in the context of counselling-supervision.
• They will develop an awareness of ethical and practical issues related to supervision.
• They will develop the ability to assess their own work in critical and non-defensive ways and will identify areas for further professional development.
• They will have the opportunity to work with peers who are also experienced person-centred counsellors.

Early Bird Booking: £900.00 before 30/9/16
£1,050.00 – if applications are received after 30 September 2016
