Testimonial from one of our students:

Allan M Eno MSc, BSc (Hons) has a background in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy/Counselling with 12 years experience as a practitioner and 10 years experience as a Clinical Supervisor/Manager. A current practitioner in private practice at 10 Harley Street, London, he offers supervision to counsellors/therapists and psychological therapies for a range of client problems. Here is what Allan has to say about his experiences studying with ACS:

"The course (Professional Supervision) was a valuable learning experience for me because it challenged my thinking regarding the application of supervision and how to apply supervision to different professions. The course exceeded my expectations, in particular because it explored other aspects of supervision such as burn-out, professionalism, ethics and legal concerns. The course has a very comphrensive approach to supervision, which makes for a more rounded supervisor."
