Level 6



This qualification is regulated and awarded by the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) and is designed to give learners the knowledge, skills and competencies to provide clinical supervision for counselling practitioners.

The qualification is designed to lead to an employed or voluntary role as a clinical counselling supervisor in a counselling agency or in independent practice. Supervision is an on-going professional requirement for all practising counsellors and those with a recognised qualification are more likely to find employment. 


Taught by practitioners at Lifetime Therapy in Cornwall, our sessions take place in a calm, nurturing environment. As in all our work, our intention is to support you as you develop and thrive as a counsellor, supervisor and person.

The theoretical orientation of the qualification is Pluralistic (Cooper & McCleod, 2007), which is a collaborative, integrative perspective, deeply rooted in Humanistic and Person-centred values. Its fundamental premise is that each client is unique, and therefore may need different things from therapy. This same concept can be applied to the supervisory relationship and allows for a responsive and fluid approach to supervisee needs.

Application deadline:
