“The course is a challenge to all therapists wanting to become supervisors. Proper, thorough … and in depth training of this quality should be mandatory for all supervisors….” – M.C. 2012

This course was established 20 years ago by Bernd C. Leygraf in response to the needs of practitioners who felt that experience as clinicians was insufficient preparation for the work of a supervisor. Over the years the course continued to evolve distinct supervision competences, with input from graduates of the programme as well as the Institute of Group Analysis (UK), The Institute of Psychiatry (UK), several UK Health Authorities, the Gestalt Institute Cleveland and particularly Jane Ridley (Intimacy in Crisis, Whurr 2005) both Joseph Zinker (In Search of Good Form, GICPress 1998) and Sandra Cardoso-Zinker.

Recent UKCP guidelines on supervision recognition are integrated into the course. The course is now accredited by the National Council for Psychotherapists (NCP).

Currently the course is scheduled to run for 11 months and aims to prepare students for individual accreditation with BACP, AHPP, COSRT, UKCP and others.

We offer an evening module plus 2 weekends, a total of 112 contact hours.

The course is open to qualified counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, coaches, nurse managers, psychologists, therapeutic community managers and case workers in organisational settings. The theoretical orientation of the course is Integrative, encouraging course participants to develop a supervision philosophy in line with this. It is envisaged that this will enable trainees to work within their own theoretical field as well as across theoretical differences. The course community is drawn from a wide range of modalities and disciplines supporting a rich and fertile learning environment. The course leans towards the relational aspects of supervision.

The course is offered on 2 Weekends (10.00 – 17.00) plus 24 Thursday Evenings from 18.00 – 21.30.
Total amount of 112 contact hours. Starting February 2016, ending November 2016.
