Cascade Diploma in Consultative Supervision and Reflective Practice for Counsellors, Psychotherapists and those in Related Professions
“This has been a really wonderful experience- I have been inspired and enriched. I have never felt hindered but always considered and encouraged, by peers and tutors alike. I will miss the collegiate atmosphere, the focus and the purposefulness. I love the experiential grounding of the course” (Natasha)
“A very creative course where I felt both supported and challenged to become the supervisor I want to be”
CASCADE Consultative Supervision course is designed so that, as a counsellor or other professional, you will be facilitated to learn, establish and identify your skills as a supervisor, working with groups and individuals, in your own professional field whether it be counselling, psychology, psychotherapy, arts & drama therapy, social work, coaching, homeopathy, addiction work etc. The Training has an integrative basis and welcomes you as a counsellor, psychotherapist or from a caring profession to join us and share the variety of theoretical backgrounds (humanistic, existential, systemic, psychodynamic, transpersonal, person centred, cognitive behavioural etc.) We will support those who wish to prepare to meet the BACP requirements for supervisory accreditation. The CASCADE tutors also offer a wide knowledge and practice of various theoretical orientations and are all BACP and/or UKCP accredited/registered see Tutor Team.
The course offers a professional qualification at Diploma level. The course was initially set up in the 1980s by Francesca Inskipp and Brigid Proctor who wrote the books on which the course is based, see: Cascade Publications. Since 1994 CASCADE has been facilitated by a team of experts in the field of counselling, psychotherapy and supervision. The CASCADE Diploma covers both Individual and Group Consultative Supervision and is taught in a highly experiential and creative way.
If you are a counsellor or psychotherapist and you are looking for a counselling or psychotherapy supervision training that is both creative, generic and experiential, this could be the course for you.
