Stepping-Up Model Clinical Supervision Courses for Counsellors & Therapy Practitioners
Facilitated & Assessed by Lyndall Briggs

Clinical Supervision

Supervision is an essential safeguard for clients, a support for counsellors and a process through which practitioners can develop their skills and competence.

Supervision is a required undertaking for numerous allied health professionals in a great variety of disciplines including counselling, psychology, social work, mental health nursing, hypnotherapy, and community work.

A competent professional supervisor is able to conduct both individual and group supervision sessions using various techniques and interventions. They can provide effective evaluation and feedback to supervisees while addressing the ethical and legal considerations of supervision.

Course Basics

Our primary course is the certificate of attainment in individual & group clinical supervision which consists of 3 components: textbook theory, video study and concludes with a 3-day face-to-face workshop delivered by Lyndall Briggs in Sydney.

Course Benefits

Individual and Group Supervision Course & Workshop

Lyndall’s significant years of experience as a practitioner, supervisor, facilitator and assessor help make the course as meaningful as possible for all attendees.

Course is recognised by a range of professional organisations including the ACA, ACWA, AHA, ASCH and PACFA (through the extra component – see details on the courses page).

The small workshop size means high participation and friendly discourse during the workshop sessions as well as through the breaks including the delicious lunches.

The competitive rates for the full course provide significant value particularly when you take into account it is ACA approved for 10 OPD points and 6 hours of supervision.

“The practical aspects of the course really brought home for me how valuable supervision is and can be.
Lyndall’s experience was really good to tap into as well.”

Counsellor (anonymous)

“I’m very grateful for the supervision course, not only because of the content, but because of the way it was taught by Lyndall Briggs.
The number of additional resources provided is just one example of how the course itself was enhanced. I recommend this to everyone.”

Richard Hill, Attendee

“I am so glad I attended workshop training, the group discussions with fellow would-be supervisors were really instructive and Lyndall added extra advice and guidance from all her experience and other sources too.”

COVID-19 continues to be very challenging for everyone.

Our supervision courses are running, but with reduced class sizes to allow for better social distancing. We have introduced extra sanitation and hygiene practices and will continue to comply with NSW health requirements.

We recommend taking extra care of your wellbeing in these times.


Sydney Supervision Training is currently concentrating on offering the accredited Individual and Group Supervision training course for clinical and professional supervisors.
If you are looking to have the course offered to a specific workplace group let us know so we can work out a program that will work for you.

We have other courses that will be offered again soon including up-skilling to group supervision.

Keep an eye out for other course options on the website or get in touch if you have questions in the meantime.
