SummaryRationale
All counselling and psychotherapy practitioners are required to have regular supervision by a suitably experienced and qualified supervisor. Increasingly, professional bodies expect that these supervisors will have completed a professionally-validated supervision course. In October 2005, COSCA, our professional body in Scotland, launched such a supervision course.

This course will incorporate the COSCA supervision course and will be offered as a CPD course.
