Supervision is increasingly understood as a separate discipline with its own skills set and knowledge, in contrast to counselling and psychotherapy. Many professions now require their supervisors to undergo formal supervisor training. This workshop provides the essential knowledge and skills training for the delivery of supervision across different modalities.
PACFA, the peak body for counsellors and psychotherapists, has specific requirements for accreditation of its supervisors. To this end, this supervisor-training course has also been designed to meet these requirements.
These modules are designed to provide an intimate, experiential and tutorial style of learning and number of participants is therefore limited to 21 participants. They are suitable for health care professionals such as counsellors, psychotherapists, nurses, social workers, and psychologists.
The content of these modules will reflect 40% of practical skills training as required by PACFA.

- Speaking allows you to connect face-to face.
- Speaking builds your credibility in your community.

- you prepare less content and have more interaction with your audience
- you reframe speaking as ‘connecting with people who need you’
- you have a way to manage the inevitable nerves in a way that endears you to the audience
- you have an easy-to-follow system for converting a percentage of those audience members into paying clients.
