For team leaders, lecturers, managers and supervisors of counsellors, psychotherapists and case managers

Presenters: Jo Ablett and Cheryl Taylor

This PACFA endorsed program aims to develop and enhance supervisory skills within a Person Centred, Reflective framework. Using a person centred and creative approach, this program supports supervisors to develop and enhance skills that will equip them to supervise practitioners across a range of different modalities and presenting issues. The program is strongly influenced by the latest research in neuroscience and underpinned by person centred principles and a compassionate approach.


Drawing on the work of Bonnie Badenoch, Gilbert & Evans and Mearns & Thorne, we consider the following:

Supervisory relationship -Establishing and maintaining a healthy fit
• Attachment
• Safety / Safe place
• Individual differences
• Developmental stages
• Transference and Counter-transference
• Parallel process
• Core conditions
• Ruptures and repairs

Supervising across modalities and client presentations
• Applying a person centred approach to work across modalities
• Using a reflective approach to work with a variety of presentations
• When to encourage supervisee to obtain specialized supervision

Cheryl Taylor and Jo Ablett have a solid foundation of Supervisory Training and experience gained over more than a decade of practice as Supervisors. For five years Cheryl and Jo have provided professional development for Supervisors. Cheryl is currently employed as a lecturer and supervisor at Cairn Millar and Jo is a Senior Trainer for Expressive Therapies Institute of Australia.
