Psychoanalytic supervision for counsellors working in educational settings

Course overview

This is an opportunity for counsellors and other education professionals working in a counselling capacity in schools and further education, to join a small supervision group in order to develop psychoanalytic thinking and apply it to their work.

These supervision groups are designed to give participants a chance to present work in a safe and confidential setting and to explore their work from a psychoanalytic perspective. 

There will be opportunities to share ideas and theoretical concepts with other like minded professionals and to reflect on the impact of the work on one’s own professional development.

The course aims to:

  • Provide an opportunity for participants to present their own work
  • Learn from other participants’ work
  • Increase knowledge of psychoanalytic thinking applied to counselling work with children and young people in education settings
  • Provide a space for critical reflection and improve clinical practice

The supervision group will meet once a month for 10 sessions. The times and dates of each meeting are to be confirmed by the course administrator.

There is a maximum 5 people per group and all groups run continually throughout the year.

This supervision group is open to all counsellors and other education professionals working in a counselling capacity in schools and further education. 

Knowledge of psychoanalytic concepts will be expected. This could be as a component of professional training or through previous supervision in this model of work or through attending any CPD event using this model of thinking.

We aim to run one or two groups throughout the year and it may be possible to join a group at any point. Please contact us to discuss your options and to book a place.
