Mentoring and Supervision

This module is designed to enable you to take up a mentoring or supervisory role in your organisation by equipping you with theoretical understanding of the dynamics of that role, and by considering in depth your mentoring or supervision of a colleague or peer over 5 weeks. You can also practice mentoring in workshops and gain valuable feedback to improving your skills.

Counselling Contexts

What do you understand about the complexities of being a counsellor? What are the settings within which counselling takes place? And what are the ethical and statutory framework within which you’ll be working? This module helps you gain an understanding of the professional environment of counselling before starting your placement.
