MA/PG Dip Supervision (Professional Practice Counselling & Psychotherapy)

This course is designed for practicing psychotherapists and counsellors who want to develop their professional skills to offer clinical supervision.

The programme allows counsellors and psychotherapists from any modality to train as supervisors. It is part time, with teaching taking place in weekend blocks to meet the needs of working professionals. It is ideal for practicing psychotherapists and counsellors who want to enhance their career options and obtain a post-graduate qualification.

Both the MA and PG Dip are validated by Middlesex University and meet UKCP standards and BACP training standards.

This course provides a solid foundation in the theory and practice of supervision drawing on the model outlined by Shohet & Hawkins in Supervision in the Helping Professions (2002) and the developmental model proposed by Stoltenberg and McNeill.

It provides a structure which contains theoretical, experiential and practice components and aims to enable the supervisor to work with counsellors and/or psychotherapists who may have trained in a variety of different orientations.

The theoretical input includes a strong Research element and examines contemporary thought at the forefront of psychotherapeutic development.  This includes integrative, psychodynamic and humanistic ideas and is centred on developing an awareness and understanding of the importance of the supervisory relationship, together with the roles and responsibilities of the supervisor.

The Minster Centre prides itself on offering small study groups, personal attention and a friendly, supportive learning environment which encourages personal development. Applicants are not required to have been in recent academic training in order to be considered for a place on this course.
