Advanced Training in Supervision: Theory & Practice

Advanced Training in Supervision

Theory & Practice:

A Relational & Experiential Process

This exciting and newly developed training program provides participants with 39 hours of direct face to face supervision training within a training group over three weekends. This experiential learning will allow participants to enhance their practice of individual and group supervision within a supportive environment. Successful participants will be able to apply to be listed as an accredited supervisor on the PACFA National Register.

The teaching offered will draw on the theory and practice of supervision. It will include principles of the Gestalt Therapy method in the supervisory setting: field sensitivity, relational dialogue, experimentation and here and now attention. Learning will take place face to face, through the facilitation of incremental learning experience and experimentation, seminar-based discussions, and through collaborative and co-operative learning with facilitator and peer interaction.


  • PACFA Endorsed 20 hours CPD (in accordance with the requirements of the PACFA Supervision Training Standards)
  • ACA Endorsed OPD

The Advanced Training in Supervision Theory & Practice course at Gestalt Therapy Brisbane has been a wonderful, helpful and soulful training experience. The content was rich and inspiring. The experiential and relational teaching process as facilitated by Greer, Tine & Leila was strength based and genuinely pulled together the collective wisdom of all participants, bringing out the best in every-one. I was encouraged to strive for excellence but not perfection and discovered that I was enough. Since the training I have provided supervision to groups and individuals with more authenticity, clarity and competence and received positive feedback from my supervisees. This training provided an element of personal development along with the professional skills to facilitate rich, helpful and sound supervision to those in the helping professions. Thank you. ~ Supervision Graduate 2019.
