My approach to Supervision
Tony has been in pastoral ministry for 23 years. Some of this involves chaplaincy ministry in hospital, school and aged care settings across a number of denominations, as well as pastoral ministry in church settings.   He has supervised chaplaincy students in their field work and some counselling students.   
 I view supervision as a safe place where two people walk a journey together and at times struggle with issues that are difficult and sometimes unanswerable.  It is a place where one is supported on the journey and where one can struggle or rest with the unanswerable issues if need be  .My approach is a reflective companion on the journey.

My Approach to Supervision
I view supervision as an opportunity to take “time out” for intentional reflection on issues relating to one's work, 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 hospital chaplain in a variety of settings, living and working in Asia and the Middle East, raising a family and involvement in my local church.

My approach to Supervision
“You must have chaos in you to give rise to a dancing star” Nietsche Supervision gives a protected spacefor a person to reflect, question, analyse and critique their personal encounters or workplace issues so that a person can go away from the session affirmed in their approach or take away new questions to explore.
In the reflective model of pastoral supervision the deeper meaning of a situation is explored so that a person comes to see the possible underlying values being played out in the situation and find ways to work with these.
This then deepens one’s own spirituality and calls a person forth to enjoy and delight in their own personal transformation and that of others as they travel together on the road to wholeness.

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
My approach to supervision is that of offering a safe place of listening, to encourage reflection on areas of work and life that may challenge or delight, and so to foster learning and growth both in the professional and personal sphere.  It is about discovering more about ourselves and recognizing how we may continue to develop our skills at every stage of life.
My background as a mental health chaplain makes me very aware of human vulnerability and strength. I enjoy working with, and learning from, people of 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 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.

My approach to Supervision
I see the time in supervision/consultation as a safe place to reflect on work and ministry. My approach to supervision is influenced by my experience in ministry (in Fiji, Central Queensland and Sydney) as well as my training in reflective pastoral supervision with Transforming Practices Inc. I also welcome the use of creative ways to do supervision.
