About the Role

We are looking for an experienced training supervisor to work with students on our Advanced Clinical Practice programme. This course is intended for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who wish to undertake substantial continuing professional development to reflect on their existing practice and to extend and deepen their work whilst obtaining a post graduate qualification.

We are currently planning for a blended delivery coming year, with some face to face teaching and some online teaching (through Zoom and Moodle). We hope we will be able to increase the face to face teaching as the year progresses Covid-19 dependant. Applicants need to be willing to offer this way of teaching, or make clear in their application what their position is, e.g. if you need to continue shielding and can only offer online. There will be no discrimination in this regard.

The clinical supervisor will bring work with small groups of students (3-5) providing supervision of work with long-term clients. Your role will be to support the students to integrate the theories they have been studying and their own self-awareness into their clinical work, and help them prepare to demonstrate their clinical learning by presenting their work in a supervision portfolio, case studies and at a live assessment. Students may be seeing the clients in private practice, placements or through the Minster Centre Psychotherapy and Counselling Service (MCPCS). They may be receiving other supervision of the work.

This course is delivered in weekend blocks on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Supervision is provided on Friday and Sunday afternoons from 2.30 -5.30 approximately monthly (10 blocks) for first year students (20 supervisions in total). See attached list of course dates.

The role requires a commitment to supporting students who are also qualified practitioners in developing their theoretical understanding and capacity to work at depth.

Requirements for the post holder are:
• UKCP HIPC Recognised Training Supervisor or equivalent.
• Extensive experience of work as a supervisor, ideally with trainee psychotherapists and counsellors
• Preferably previous experience of work in a training capacity and of student assessment


Apply by completing an Application Form and Record Declaration (downloadable below) and sending along with a cover letter or email to Justine Walsh [email protected].

This post is being advertised internally and externally.

Please review whether you currently have any Minster Centre students as clients and in which year and let us know if this is the case so that we can manage any potential dual relationships.

Deadline: 9.00am on Friday 30th November
