What People Have Said About the Course:

"I highly recommend this training. It is a course that has encouraged me to use action methods in supervision to facilitate learning and growth from a place of self-acceptance. Presentations and feedback from tutors and colleagues have nourished my understanding of supervision with therapists working with different modalities, and in various settings. As a dramatherapist, it has been particularly enriching to learn techniques based on psychodrama and dance movement therapy. The pace of the weekends, the balance between theory and practice, the depth of the group process and the exploration of both individual and group supervision have made it an extraordinary learning experience."

"I really enjoyed the training and got a huge amount from the course to take forward in my work. Being introduced to both fundamental supervisory frameworks as well as a range of creative, action methods has given me confidence and clarity. Meeting regularly over several months gave me the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of peers as we had the chance to repeatedly practice methods in a supportive and reflective environment. Tutors supported our rigour and demonstrated inspiring ways of working."

Paul Beaumont RSMT Dip IBMT

"A powerful and enriching learning experience that taught me a lot about supervision and about myself. Having gained the confidence and the means to work creatively, I came away with a renewed sense of my potential. This course practices what it teaches. With theory providing a secure base from which to explore, experiential learning fosters both group and individual creative engagement with techniques. This is supported by encouragement to reflect and thereby develop new understandings, skills and attitudes."
