To train in counselling or pastoral supervision
The demand for pastoral supervision is increasing as more ministers seek help in reflecting well on their work. If you would like to be trained so that you can give pastoral supervision to others, Spurgeon’s College offers The Professional Certificate in Pastoral Supervision
. You will be taught over a series of six two-day midweek workshops. The combination of theological and psychological learning will enable you to supervise others involved in pastoral practice. Successful completion of the course fulfils the training requirements for accreditation with the Association for Pastoral Supervision and Education
If you wish to train in counselling, Spurgeon’s College offers certificates and a diploma in counselling
that are validated by the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body. They also meet the requirements for accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
. These are taught over one whole day each week. There is a non-validated ten-week evening class as an introduction to counselling for those who are wholly new to the field.
