Event Details

As practicing therapists, we each form our own unique and personal style of working with our clients. As we grow and develop as practitioners it is important that our style continues to evolve, to be fresh, contemporary and lively.

This clinical supervision workshop offers “hands on” professional supervision in a supportive environment aimed at enhancing your skills and self awareness as a practitioner through the sensitive exploration of your personal style and practice.

Drawing on Gestalt therapy’s grounding in the relationship between the therapist and client as the source of healing and change, the workshop will focus on the process of ‘meeting in the moment’ as a foundation of experiential learning.

This workshop is open to practitioners who have no, some or considerable experience in Gestalt therapy practice and/or training.

‘Take homes’ from participating in this workshop:


  1. A more informed understanding of your professional style and your growing edges and how these can contribute to transforming self-understanding, human relating and your therapeutic work.
  2. A greater appreciation of the untapped revolutionary and evolutionary ideas that are at the heart of the Gestalt approach.
  3. Shared ideas for how to apply a broader understanding of specific contemporary issues in your counselling and therapeutic endeavours.
  4. Memories and learnings about relational processes from living and practicing the gestalt approach in a group through the exploration of a range of challenging ideas as well as having fun together.
