Improved my ability to tolerate/value pausing.

The possible potential of being there still more fully and with greater sensitivity.

Recognising that some of it I already do, remembering to pause. The Demo and having a go.

 ‘Group Supervision – Exploring Process’ 

Feedback from this training session held       April 2019


What has been professionally/clinically useful for you within the training?

The Focus and reflection, Animal Island exercise was great.

I feel that I could use the method used to day to facilitate potential difficulties in a group I may be facilitating. It has helped me to reflect on my role in a group.

It has been hugely helpful to have someone lead the group through the difficulties and head us in a positive direction.

Experience, willingness to challenge.

Because I have learnt more about how and why I function. Help with being supervisors.

Having the opportunity to situate myself and play around with my position in the group.

Openness and atmosphere created to allow us all to speak.

Reflections on our group process.


What has been personally useful for you within the training?

The personal reflection and courage I’ve taken.

My role in a group.

Hearing how I come across to others.

A safe space to process.

I’ve realised how hurt I’ve been.

Hearing others’ experiences of me.

Using the animals – seeing yourself in them even things you may not have been aware of firstly.

Insight into self, step to building trust in a group.


One sentence you would like to say to your facilitator?

Thank you Lesley, I appreciated your compassion, insight, firm management and gentle humour.

Thank you for providing a safe space for today’s training.

I love your warm but firm approach

Thank you for the safety and the effectiveness of your robustness in facilitating our process.

Thank you your approach has been invaluable.

Thank you for the island activity but perhaps we could have had more time to discuss our current group difficulties.

Measured and built nicely.

Working Therapeutically with Children 12th March 2019


What has been professionally/clinically useful for you within the training?

Identifying more exercises to use with the pre bereaved, found Lesley’s suggestions really helpful.

It has given me food for thought about the impact of working with children.

The role play allowed me to experience being the young person, which helped me entre their world and maybe understand it a bit more.

Being the client/insight. Another layer of empathy (depth). Triad as therapist, I found I was same person listening to feedback.

The Triad Work

Refreshing my knowledge of working with children, confirmation that I am providing a good service to the community of Burley and Pendle.

Talking about how young people deal with death.

Great insight into children’s work.

Exploring the option to work with children.

Affirmation that we are providing a high standard of counselling to children

What has been personally useful for you within the training?

I’ve learned more about how my own experience is helping others to work with theirs and also to look more closely at the attachment behind the attachment style for myself and my clients.

An awareness of myself both as an adult and through the exercises, as a child.

That I can do this and do it with more confidence, trust in myself rather that looking at others thinking they are doing it better.

The affirmation and comfort that I’m not too ‘far out’ from model but authentic self-overrides this anyway.

Practice work in groups to see how others work.

Being the child and learning how if felt to be with an adult who cared.

Understanding how young people express through play, good theory behind the work.

I learnt something about myself which I was unaware of

It’s ok not to know!

It was nice to do a training session as a team

What might you like to encourage more of?

More triad work in venue more equipped to provide that space although I fully respect the limitations due to practicalities.

I would like more of these trainings and more space to do some of the exercises/triads.

Trusting that what I do is okay and that I keep my boundaries, voice firm.

None directive play experience.

Practice/triad and reflective work

Experiential play.

More of owning feelings and talking about them when something comes up when talking in a group.

Further sessions like this one.

Watching play sessions.

What might you encourage less of?

I feel that I need to slow down initially when I fiest meet a client at times my doubt can make me say too much or go too quick. Something to think about.


Small group work more creativity

One sentence you would like to say to your facilitator?

Your training always inspires me to feel more at peace with myself as a counsellor.

Very accommodative yet mindful of the boundaries, made the environment very relaxing and comfortable by her presence.

Group Supervision Training day

26th September 2017, Hosted by Robin Shohet



Has this training impacted on you professionally?        

Yes, it’s shone a light on some of my blocks and defences

Made me reflect on myself, and the data that I collect

How important to feel held in the group. Saying that – I have experienced this in my training but on my CPD days over the years this has been almost non existent

How every piece of data is welcome?

Yes, thought provoking re assuring and importance of relationships/heart.

Yes reminded me about process

Made me completely evaluate how I worked in a supervisory role

Freedom from the feeling I have to ‘know it all’

I feel the training has impacted on me professionally and personally, everything is valuable that a supervisee brings to a session; I will remember Data – Content –Process

I loved the experiential way of learning – no names, or titles/job roles = no judgements

I feel as though it has helped me focus more on the ‘what is’ rather than what can I do about it

It has given me greater insight into process

Yes certainly, it has given me a whole new perspective on working with clients, particularly the projective identification discussions.  Also ‘data’ – and not get caught up in it.

I have a more in depth understanding of the emotions involved in a group process

It’s taken some of the pressure of having to know- everything is data

Yes, new way of being, how to enhance supervision practice

Yes, made me reflect on myself, the data that I collect, my self-awareness important. Given areas for CPD ‘projective identification’ and parallel process.

How has this training impacted upon you personally?

Loved the feeling of freedom of letting some things go

It’s given my confidence a boost. The group supervision was most enlightening. I will definitely continue with my work and stop thinking I should retire.

Pay more attention to me – look more at projective identification

Yes I feel more confident and self assured

Able to speak and show courage

Made me rethink my behaviour within my personal life and relationships

Able to identify my core belief and how to challenge this

It has helped me to see that I am more comfortable in large groups than I thought

I am good enough!

It has been freeing and given a sense of liberation

To strive to be more free, to break rules (occasionally)! To be present!

Data - to remain unemotional to be aware of my personality, how it affects relationships

Freed up to be curious and explore the process

Impact on self-beliefs and unhelpful responses

Lot of processing on own issues

Provided material for Personal development

What did you find least useful and how would you improve this?

Everything was useful

The area I had the most problem with was the idea of not complaining, to start internally (made sense by the end of the day)

Everything was useful

Found the whole day useful

What areas have you identified for further professional/personal development?   

Need to look at blocks and identify them in counselling

Another day with Robin?

Need to do more around parallel process and projective identification

To learn more about ‘projective personality’

More of the same

Stay with embodied feelings and trust that something will come up

I feel I would like to be part of a larger supervision group at some point

Continuing to attend training events as and when identified, to read more!

To continue with the development of group supervision

Continuing opening my heart and my awareness

Do you have any feedback to offer the facilitator/s?

Well organised, lovely venue.

Great day- venue -food -company and of course the work with Robin Shohet

Thank you for organising such an informative, challenging and compassionate facilitator in Robin.

Thanks for an excellent day

Fab place, very calming – more of the same please

Wonderful day

Enjoyed the pace of the day, calming and soothing but packed full of learning

Venue was brilliant

Just great!

Thank you for facilitating a very enjoyable, pleasant and worthwhile day in a beautiful location

A really valuable day, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Thank You. I really appreciated your sense of fun, almost mischief which played to my inner silliness!

It was excellently organised and facilitated, with a sense of warmth and welcoming

Very open and genuine, very informative and experiential

Excellent, thank you for the challenge and helping me towards deeper insights

Excellent facilitator

Any other comments are welcome.

I’m looking forward to taking part in many more training days.

More Please

Everything is welcomed

Just love Robin now! Will read his book from cover to cover.

Thank you

When are you putting on another day that I can go to?

What did you find least useful and how would you improve this training?

All very good.

I found it all useful.

I found it all helpful but would have liked to hear some of the theory in more depth (new and developing theory).

Sharing as a group and in pairs was the most useful.

I love to make notes, - a good thing was I didn’t need to, but still felt I should be doing!!

Probably the PowerPoint at the end, I felt that I was switching off a bit. Useful if a longer course though?

None, it was all useful.

I felt all the content was useful.


I enjoyed all the activities.


What areas have you identified for further professional /personal development?

Personal work on bereavement.

Need to update myself again regarding theories/research into grief. This research can help to validate a person’s response to grief.


Further reading and further experiential training.

Self Care, Self Care, Self Care…

To read the theories re grief/loss to further my knowledge and also to refresh my knowledge.

I would like to read more and possibly attend further events, thinking of retreats. Keep considering my own self-care.

To learn more about bereavement counselling for children.

I am interested in learning more about bereavement counselling.

To continue PD as it’s good to recall and further my knowledge

Professional -  to look at body language, noise and movement in session,

Personal -  to consider talking to family and avoid avoiding issues.

Do you have any feedback to offer the facilitator/s?

Very well presented, personable and professional.

The facilitator’s tone of voice, demeanour ensured a calm safe environment.

I found client examples helpful and would enjoy more of this.

I felt looked after.

Thank you, lovely mix of facilitating styles that complimented the range and learning styles in the group.

I felt safe and comfortable with how the course was facilitated. It was well planned and delivered sensitively. At no point did I feel intimidated by the facilitator’s vast experience in this area.

I felt safe quickly and relaxed, which allowed me to learn I also felt contentment that allowed me to explore aspects I wouldn’t normally do on a training day.

I have enjoyed the day, Thank you.

I have really enjoyed today, (and the food was excellent)!

Well organised and very clear, Thank you

Fantastic venue and food


Any Other comments are welcome

Lovely venue and excellent food, thank you kitchen staff.

Room quite cold in the morning, which distracted me from focussing a little.

The pace was helpful, the venue and food was great. Having regular breaks gave time to reflect.

I only wish it had been longer J

The environment was so relaxing and peaceful, just what I needed, thank you.

A lovely setting for this course, the food was lovely.

It was emotional but therapeutic, sharing experiences with people I only just met.
