Who is this course for?
The Suparna Certificate / Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy Supervision is for experienced counsellors and psychotherapists who are currently in practice and who wish to enhance their skills by supervising other practitioners. Applicants for the course will need to have been qualified for at least three years and will have completed at least 450 hours of counselling/psychotherapy practice. The course is well suited to therapists who are either new to supervision or who have already been providing supervision but who wish to further develop their practice.
Where will this course take place?
The course has previously taken place at a therapy centre in central Harrogate, within 3 minutes walk of the bus and train station and with plenty of pay and display parking facilities nearby. The location for the course in 2018 will depend on student numbers and so this is to be confirmed.
