NAOS- Institute
NAOS Diploma in Clinical Supervision and Consultancy
This course was established 19 years ago by Bernd Leygraf, recognizing that supervision is a discipline with a body of theory and technique of it’s own. The course consists of theoretical, experiential and live supervision components.The theoretical orientation of the training is Integrative, encouraging course participants to develop a supervision philosophy in line with this. It is envisaged that this will enable trainees to work within their own theoretical field as well as across theoretical differences. The course community is drawn from a wide range of modalities and disciplines supporting a rich and fertile learning environment. The course leans towards the relational aspects of supervision. Recent UKCP guidelines on supervision recognition are integrated into the course.
NAOS Diploma in Group Facilitation, Conflict Resolution and Counselling Skills
The course aims to provide an accredited training in working with individuals, groups and teams. It is designed for professionals who are required to facilitate groups, be that in residential settings (such as prisons or therapeutic communities) or in a more public context. This includes group workers, community leaders, mediators, educators, clergy, as well as coaches and organisational consultants. This training explores the link between more individualised approaches to reconciliation such as counselling and working with dual and larger systems. The course recognizes the larger dynamics behind all conflict and the common ground shared by enemies. Counselling skills complement both group facilitation and conflict resolution skills and include unconditional positive regard, respect and authenticity. The principles of non-violent communication underpin these activities.

By drawing course participants from a wide variety of professional backgrounds the course community provides a rich and fertile environment for challenge, support and personal development.
NAOS Diploma in Trauma Therapy
This is a pioneering professional training in how to work with the process of trauma in a relational way. It is open to counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists or other mental health professionals. The course will explore the effects trauma has on people’s development in relation to their psyche, body, relationships, work and spirituality. We explore the mechanisms traumatised people use to organise their lives. As a specific focus we include the impact of the client’s trauma on the therapist.The intention is to support students in developing a proactive and therapeutic style, integrating different techniques instead of depending on them. The course will reflect on post-traumatic stress, single and multiple episodes of trauma, chronic trauma, accidental trauma and developmental trauma. The programme combines didactic theory seminars, work discussion groups and experiential learning, skills training in triads and small groups, guided reading and large group process.
NAOS Advanced Diploma in Couples Therapy
The intention of the Advanced Diploma in Couples Therapy is threefold: 1) to support clinicians in working with couples presenting with more complex issues such as symbiotic or enmeshed pathologies; 2) to integrate relationship enhancement models such as PAIRS or IMAGO into couples therapy; 3) to deepen developmental and transpersonal approaches to working with intimate systems. The course will enable you to work with the more complex couple presentations (medium to long term). Attention will be given to the work of Lachkar, Schnarch, Zinker, Bader and Pearson, Hollis and others.Group supervision and professional development groups will be interspersed with didactic teaching and skills training.
NAOS Diploma in Counselling with Children and Young Adults
The training takes place “extra mural” in Belgium on a part time modular basis. The course offers cutting edge and inspiring theory and practice. It adopts an integrative approach, drawing on some of the most up to date neuroscientific and psychotherapeutic theory including attachment theory, object relations theory and, in particular the work of Freud, Winnicott, Bowlby, Perls, Berne, Jessica Benjamin.The Diploma offers a wealth of clinical techniques to develop a meaningful dialogue with a child in ways which promote emotional health. The use of creative media: sandplay, art, storytelling are central to the clinical skills training.The training offers specializations on two levels: 1. To apply general counselling approaches to working with children and young adults; 2. To critically examine these practices in relation to working with minority populations such as Jewry.
