INDIAN ACADEMY OF PROFESSIONAL SUPERVISORS is an Association of accomplished mental health professionals who have established this organization with the laudable objective of evolving standards and enhancing competencies in professional supervision.
In India, mental health, as a profession, has received attention and focus it deserves during the last decade. This is corroborated by the fact that there are a number of qualified counsellors, who are supporting the general public in their mental health and well-being. The acceptance of therapeutic counselling by the public as a legitimate intervention to alleviate their suffering has borne fruits over the years. The stigma that used to be attached to visits to such mental health professionals is also slowly fading away from public consciousness and has come to be accepted as a normal way of treating mental health-related issues. While this is a welcome trend, this has also thrown up its own challenges as with any emerging field. The number of counsellors is on the rise.

FROM THE DESK OF DR.VASUKI
Founder/ President – IAPS
It was my dream to pursue Supervision certification from well recognized Professional body like Australian Counselling Association and was fortunate to fulfill my ambition a couple of years back. Having realized the need to have such training in India where we do not have a regulatory body for counsellors and Psychologists, I initiated the ACA certified ” Supervisor Training ” on behalf of my Company ” Explore Counselling” and today we have 28 certified Supervisors. This effort laid the foundation for the birth of “IAPS”.
