RISE-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.

“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.”
