Gestalt is an exciting dynamic approach to coaching and supervision. The emphasis is on working in the Here & Now – attending to emotions and experience that arise in the session, while the Paradox of Change is the guiding principle at the core of Gestalt practice. This means that key part of the work and learning comes from attending to the quality of relationship between the Supervisor/Coach, where the Supervisor is attending as much to their own internal reactions as to the issues presented by the Coach. The Field concept of Parallel Process is therefore another key focus in this way of working.
John Leary-Joyce will explain these principles in relation to the Hawkins’ Seven-Eyed Supervision Model, which aligns well with the Gestalt approach, to systematically address the different Supervision ‘modes’. An attached chapter from my book Fertile Void, Gestalt Coaching at Work outlines this model.
