Clinical internships & supervision for budding Counsellors. Kindly note that all our services are only available to Singapore Citizens, and Permanent Residents.
WINGS Counselling Centre has been a popular destination for internships since 2000. We provide clinical internships and supervision for budding counsellors who have the theoretical knowledge in counselling, but lack the micro skills required for its practical implementation. Supervision is a process in which a social service professional – such as a counsellor – can speak to a trained supervisor for guidance. Supervision can be in the form of clinical internships or attachments for professional counsellors, graduating, and graduated students and or those seeking supervision for aiming to become a Registered Counsellor at the Singapore Association for Counselling. We have a collaborative relationship with a number of institutions such as UniSIM, Nanyang Polytechnic, Monash University, James Cook University (JCU), and the Executive Counselling & Training Academy (ECTA). Those pursuing a Certificate, Diploma, Degree or Masters in Counselling can contact us should they require clinical supervision. Independent counsellors seeking clinical supervision are welcomed as well.
The payment structure is as follows:
All level (Masters / Degree / Diploma): $110 per supervision hour
Payable to: WINGS Counselling Centre
Mode of Payment: Cash & Cheques only
personal therapy (for counsellors)
While you are are pursuing your studies to become a professional counsellor, it is critical for budding counsellors to seek personal therapy for a couple of reasons. Budding counsellors need to experience being a client to know the anxieties of meeting a counsellor for the first time and having to disclose personal or family matters without knowing how much the client can trust the counsellor. When budding counsellors go through personal experiences they become more aware of the client's challenges about disclosures, trust issues and their vulnerabilities. Furthermore, personal therapy also helps budding counsellors to manage their own discomforts so that they are better equipped to manage transferences and counter-transferences.
