We are always looking for new teachers, but we are especially interested in teachers with expertise in the existential approach and with a solid understanding of Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Edith Stein, Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. We can offer free, in-house training to teachers who wish to acquire knowledge of these philosophers and skills in the application of their work to psychotherapy and counselling psychology.
Doctorate and Masters Research Supervisors sought for a range of courses in Counselling Psychology, Psychotherapy and Counselling, Coaching, Diversity, Pastoral Care and Autism.
Salary: £50 per hour
The New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling is looking to recruit research supervisors for students studying on our innovative, accredited, masters and doctoral courses.
Supervisors should have a relevant qualification at or above the level of the course they are supervising on; have knowledge and experience of qualitative and/or quantitative research methods; understand how to create and maintain excellent supervisory relationships; and have publications of their own in appropriate journals.
Supervision is offered face-to-face or online and also involves reading and commenting on written work. Primary supervisors for doctoral projects offer 5 hours of supervision per term for 9 terms and secondary supervisors 12 hours in total throughout the research journey. Supervisors for masters projects offer 6 hours of supervision per term. Supervisors who have guided at least two students to successful completion, can become primary supervisors.
We provide a short training in how to manage supervision at NSPC and you will be joining an international community of academics, working with a diverse student researching a wide range of topics. Complementary training in research methods and the existential approach can be provided and there may also be opportunities to join our teaching team.
Salary: £50 per hour
(Supervisors are independent consultants, not directly employed by NSPC.)
Most of our students are undergoing training in the practice of counselling psychology, or psychotherapy. Our student body is expanding and we are therefore always on the look out for qualified existential therapists who have training or well-established experience in clinical supervision. For those otherwise qualified who are not yet familiar with the existential approach to therapy, we can offer complimentary, in-house training. Click the link to apply.
