The 'Effective Supervision' workshop was interactive, informative and really good fun. It has given me much pause for thought since, not only in how I prepare for and use Supervision but in how I reflect on my practice in general. - Michael McLinn, Counsellor

This workshop is for qualified counsellors and counsellors in training. Exploring key facets of effective supervision, ensuring counsellors are well supported in their clinical practice.
This workshop was run successfully for the volunteer counsellor's at the Coplestone Centre Creative Arts Therapies service.
