CPCAB Level 6 – Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision Course

About our course

Are you an experienced counsellor looking to take on a supervisory role and help others become better, more effective counsellors?

If your answer is yes, this is the training for you.

Supervisors play a key role in improving counselling standards and driving development across the industry. On this CPCAB course, you’ll learn all of the theories and competencies needed to be a safe and effective counselling supervisor, including how to perform a thorough assessment of those you supervise.

And not only will you be able to help improve the quality of counselling being provided, but you can also expect a sizeable increase in your earning potential as well as increased responsibility and respect from your fellow counsellors.

As with all of the courses we offer, our level 6 course is taught in an ‘experiential’ way. This means you will get to participate in practice sessions with your peers and actually develop the skills you will be learning. We believe that learning with this kind of practical application is key to becoming a great supervisor, and it allows you to do so in a safe and caring environment.

So, if you would like to become a counselling supervisor and you want to get the best advice and training available, our CPCAB level 6 course is a perfect fit for you!

This course provides:

+ 90 guided learning hours
+ 33 academic credits

What you’ll learn…

Our level 6 course gives you the advice and knowledge needed to help you take the final step in your counselling career by becoming a counselling supervisor.

You will need to have completed at least 450 hours of counselling practice and levels 2-4 in counselling training before enrolling. And while it is not mandatory, we strongly suggest that you complete level 5 too before you take level 6.

On the course, our balance of theory-based and practical classes throughout this level 6 course will help you to:

Build the relationship and trust between you and the counsellors you supervise – this is just as important as the relationship between a counsellor and their client.

Ensure you’re fully capable of supporting your supervisees. Counselling can be stressful work and the counsellors you supervise will need to know they can rely on you.

Appraise your supervisees effectively – identify their strengths and weaknesses and then challenge and support them to become the best counsellors they can be!

Keep up with your own professional development and become a better counsellor! The knowledge and skills you learn as a supervisor can be directly applied to your own counselling practice too.
