What People Have Said About the Course:
"This course modelled and lived the subject of creative approaches to supervision. The 2 facilitators clearly demonstrated the approach through their extensive knowledge of theory and practice and by engaging the group in the experiential learning style. The course was packed with interest and involvement and an essential training for supervisors both new and experienced."
Mike Lawley, UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist
"Excellent course, cleverly designed and expertly delivered. The course models what it teaches: modules are explored creatively in every aspect and participants are encouraged to offer the best they have. The wider variety of backgrounds, professions and expertise within the group, adds richness to the learning experience.
As well as helping me feel confident in the many different aspects of being a supervisor, I feel I have gained fluidity in using creative approaches in a variety of settings and therapeutic modalities. I am now able and ready to take on supervisees from a wider range of levels of expertise, professional backgrounds and ways of working."
Vicky Eugenio, Gestalt Counsellor, UKCP registered Psychotherapist and Supervisor
"This Diploma Training takes participants beyond the mere learning of theory and technique. The learning processes supported me towards a challenging and reflective space within which I could take deep stock of purpose, practice and potential.
The rich group dynamic provided further opportunity for skills integration and the honing of individual practice style. Fellow participants came with a great mix of disciplines, organisational roles and career stages. This in itself brought new insight and informed and enriched my own emergent practice.
The course is composed skilfully. The facilitators provide stretching input alongside richly structured opportunities for experiential learning, reflective practice and rigorous theory/practice thinking.
It’s been quite a journey, leaving me with a sense of change and a quietly confident eye on the difference it might make to what I do next, why and how."
