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. These qualified professionals bring in a wealth of knowledge and experience to give the necessary impetus to the establishment of processes and practices for professional supervision in India. They also have plans to collaborate with other leading organizations with similar goals in the region that would embellish their experience and give tools that are not only contemporary but also practical for the community needing supervision in India.

Certificate of Attainment in Supervision (COA) Training course

It was my dream to pursue Supervision certification  from well recognised Professional body like  Australian Counselling Association and was fortunate to fulfill my ambition couple of years back.. Having realised 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 18 certified Supervisors.This laid the foundation for the birth of “IAPS”.
