Case supervision is an essential part of CBT practice and is a requirement of professional bodies (e.g. BABCP, BPS). OCTC can offer a range of clinical supervision and consultation opportunities.

Supervision of supervision in CBT is increasingly required by organizations and OCTC staff members are experienced supervisors of CBT supervision. This can be combined with case supervision.

Supervision of clinical research can be supported by OCTC research tutors. We have a history of carrying out and supporting CBT research in a range of specialist areas.

We offer face to face supervision, telephone/ Skype supervision and group supervision. We offer supervision on both short and longer term bases and can provide one-off consultation and intense supervision of single training cases or projects. We are sometimes able to travel to provide supervision, and we can generally accommodate the particular needs of those who want to take up supervision.

Supervision / consultation fees:

Individual supervision £95/hr

Pairs supervision £140/hr

Groups £190/hr for group of 3 supervisees; £220/hr for group of 4 supervisees; £250/hr for group of 5 supervisees

Group rates can be negotiated for more than 5 persons. Travel expenses are charged separately and travel time is £66/hour (if more than 30 minutes away from our base). If rating / feedback on therapy recordings is required in addition to the supervision session, the fee is £190 for each recording rated.

What level of training or experience in CBT does each person to be supervised have? (E.g. 3 Beginners, 2 Intermediates)

‘Beginners’ level means people who have little or no CBT training – they may have read a bit about CBT or been to a workshop, but have had no systematic training or experience in CBT ‘Intermediate’ level means people who already have some knowledge of CBT and some experience in using cognitive formulations & treatment methods - for instance they know cognitive models of depression and anxiety, and are able to identify & test automatic thoughts and design behavioural experiments. ‘Advanced’ level means people who use CBT routinely as part of their clinical practice. They have probably undertaken a significant number of training courses / workshops & routinely use a broad range of CBT strategies to work with a range of presentations at varying levels of complexity
