This course is aimed at counsellors with a Diploma in Counselling or counselling skills users with a COSCA Counselling Skills certificate or equivalent as their training. It is designed to equip the less experienced practitioner with a better understanding and use of supervision, as well as to provide a significant first step for the longer trained and more experienced practitioner in their role as supervisors. The course has full COSCA validation.
