Group Supervision

Please note, the Wednesday afternoon sessions and the Tuesday evening sessions are now full. Please contact me here to express your interest in future Group Supervision sessions. 

As all Mindfulness teachers know, engagement in regular supervision whilst actively teaching is an important cornerstone in upholding the integrity of our work and maintaining our professional standards.
However, it needs to be acknowledged that there can be barriers to active engagement in supervision that are real and current.

I am committed to exploring ways to support you with supervision that is accessible and affordable.
So I am delighted to announce that, beginning in March, in conjunction with the Supervisor sub-group of the Mindfulness Teachers Association Ireland, I will pilot a new format – GROUP SUPERVISION.

Group Supervision will comprise 4 x supervision sessions, each held fortnightly online via Zoom and each session lasting 2 hours. A shorter, initial contracting session will be held in advance of Session 1. The group will consist of 4 teachers who are available and willing to commit to all 4 sessions.

Group Supervision is open to you regardless of the curriculum, format or context in which you are teaching. So, whether you are offering MBSR, MBCT, Mindfulness in the workplace or in an educational setting, you will be welcome. You may be new to teaching or are already quite experienced. In fact, even if you are not actively teaching right now, you will still be welcome as there is much to explore from this “in-between” space. I believe that a group of teachers working in different contexts and with different curricula can add to the richness and diversity of the group supervision experience.

Through compassionate presence and mutual inquiry, the group supervision space will enable you to reflect on the various aspects of your teaching and personal practice.
Two rounds of group supervision will be available – one daytime session and one evening session.

Here are the practical details:
