About The Event

Workshop from Rowan Consultancy 

Continue your professional training by gaining a recognised qualification in supervision over 3 weekends.

Who is this course for?

The Certification in Counselling Supervision is aimed at two groups:

  • Counselling and psychotherapy practitioners with at least 2 years' experience who wish to become supervisors
  • Psychotherapy, counselling and counselling skills practitioners already working as supervisors who seek to develop their skills and understanding

Course Aims

1. To introduce participants to essential theoretical concepts of counselling supervision, including:          

  • Models of supervision
  • Contracting
  • Parallel process and projective identification
  • Unconcious process
  • Ethics
  • Creative approches

2. To introduce essential supervision practice skills

3. To provide participants with an opportunity to practice these skills in a safe and supportive environment

4. To set these skills and the theory within an ethical framework

5. To increase personal growth and self-awareness as pertinent to counselling supervision

6. To provide a suitable foundation for possible further training in supervision

Structure of the Certificate 

The course is experiential and student centred in its approach. Our aim is to create an environment that is safe, confidential, supportive and challenging. Each day will involve a mixture of skills training and practice, small group work, tutor input and large group discussion. Individual reflection and increasing self-awareness are key elements of the training.

The Rowan Counselling Supervision Certificate consists of two parts:

Part One - 12 Units delivered face-to-face in Perth over 3 weekends.
