My Approach to Supervision
I view supervision as an opportunity to take “time out” for intentional reflection on issues relating to one's work. This occurs in a supportive environment which offers an outside perspective, to enhance personal and professional growth. I consider a person's life experience to be a great resource that can enrich their work. My own life experience includes working as a chaplain in hospitals and aged care, living and working in Asia and the Middle East, raising a family and involvement in my local church.

My approach to Supervision:        
I offer a safe place to listen, and to facilitate active critical reflection on areas of our work, life and relationships.  Supervision provides an ideal learning place to better understand ourselves and become more effective in our pastoral relationships. My life and work experience includes significant loss and grief in Parish ministry, in hospital and aged-care chaplaincy, and in the supervision and training of others. I enjoy working with and learning from those from different cultural backgrounds. I currently work as a part-time Chaplain with Anglicare across Western Sydney.

My Approach to Supervision
Underpinning my practice is the belief that people’s experiences, particularly those that are uncomfortable and disorientating can be the basis for personal, emotional and spiritual learning and transformation.
My understanding comes through personal experience and from studies in theology, supervisory practice, teaching theory, various nursing strands and science.
I have a passion for teaching and supporting people to grow in personal awareness, facilitating their
coming alive to insights and learning which enhances their professional pastoral self.
I am enthusiastic about working with people who are keen to learn about their own practice, who desire personal and professional understanding, and who expect their supervisor to accompany them on that journey. I currently take pleasure working with practitioners from pastoral practice, pastoral management, education and nursing practice, either in individual or peer group supervision.

My approach to Supervision
The primary focus of my supervisory practice is working with principals, and other educational leaders, to create spaces for relationship centred, reflective practice.
I am committed to supporting learning and the fullness of life within people, across the life journey.  My vocational life began as a teacher (1982+) and school leader (1991-2013) in Catholic schools across metropolitan Sydney.  Now in the second half of life, I am called to be present in diverse settings.  I work as a supervisor, education consultant, spiritual director and, one day a week, I teach teenage boys.  I am a NESA endorsed provider of professional development for teachers.  My life involves a tapestry of discerned choices, retaining space for contemplation and action.  I have co-created a way of living where I have the skills and opportunity to support people, in their work of transformation.

My Approach to Supervision.
My approach to supervision is that of offering a safe place of listening, to encourage exploration of and reflection on areas of life and work in ways that can foster learning and growth. While the focus may be on the professional sphere and the challenges and the joys of that, these are inseparable from who each individual is, so growth also stems from increased self-awareness in relation to others and from understanding how we may continue to develop our skills at every stage of life.
I have a background in congregational ministry and also several years as a  mental health chaplain, which have made me very aware of both human vulnerability and strength. 
I enjoy working with, and learning from, people from many different cultural backgrounds.

My approach to Supervision
"The unexamined life is not worth living." (Socrates)
I am interested in facilitating people's transformative learning through critical reflection on workplace events to create new meanings in that context.
I am interested in pastoral supervision with people in pastoral ministry, chaplaincy, community work and pastoral care with individuals and groups.
I am also interested in working to support priests in ministry through an accompaniment called Priests Reflective Consultation. See PeterMaher.org for further information.
My experience includes a wide range of pastoral ministries, university and hospital chaplaincy, retreat work and adult education. I currently work as a Catholic priest in parish ministry.

My Approach to Supervision
My approach to supervision is to regard it as a time and place to foster transformative adult learning.
Through conversation about their life and workplace experience, which reflects on how the meanings and practices of their tradition, cultures and contexts influence their practice, supervisees grow in awareness, make choices to protect themselves from overwork and become a clearer presence to those in their care.
I enjoy working with both individuals and groups.

My approach to SupervisionMy approach to Pastoral Supervision is to support people in ministry to
enhance skills, maintain their well-being and reflect on their practice. I believe in the ability of people
to adapt, change and make choices and so I work from a strengths based perspective and a philosophy
of hope. This allows people to discover their own strengths and know what is possible.
I am a trained and experienced supervisor in Pastoral, Professional and Clinical Supervision. I have
more than 30 years’ experience in the field of family and social services and have worked as a social
worker, a clinician offering therapy and counselling in the area of marriage and relationships and
recovery from trauma and childhood sexual abuse.
For more than 20 years I have been providing supervision to counsellors and therapists and also social
work students and student counsellors. In my work as a pastoral supervisor I am providing
supervision and consultation to members of the clergy, consecrated religious sisters and lay men and
women in their areas of ministry.
I have also worked as a Team Leader, Co-ordinator, Manager, Senior Manager and a Director of
Services during my professional career. I am a very experienced professional with a depth and breadth
of knowledge and experience. My work in Catholic and faith based organisations has given me
additional experience in the pastoral dimension of social services and a unique social justice

perspective.

My Approach to Supervision
Supervision involves setting time aside for active reflection on our work, life and relationships. It provides a safe place outside the workplace, to discuss, analyse and discover the dynamics of our work, in order to understand ourselves better, and learn to be more effective. Professional Supervision and Pastoral supervision provide a learning place for people to discover and develop insights and new ways of acting and being, which can enhance our professional and personal lives.
My work experience in teaching, mission consultancy and pastoral leadership in local church settings, forms the background of my growing development and experience in supervision. My aim as a supervisor is to work with people in their life journeys to help enable their personal growth and professional development.
