The two-paper Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Supervision (ProfSup) offers specialist postgraduate education in either family and relationship counselling or counselling supervision. The qualification is designed for experienced counselling and social service practitioners who have already received professional education.

The postgraduate certificates combine online learning and on-campus learning. This approach provides for students in more distant settings from Hamilton who are interested in learning about the ideas that we are teaching.

Enquires are now welcome for the ProfSup (Professional Supervision).

The two papers within the ProfSup (Professional Supervision) are offered over two years:

COUNS547 Professional Supervision is offered in 2022, with COUNS548 Supervision Practice to be offered in 2023.
