These Master Workshops provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at our practice and re-view assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist. “Group supervision sessions seek to provide participants with a safe, yet challenging, space, to consider and address the issues that arise for them when discussing their own, or another participant’s, experience of being a therapist.
They provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at their practice and re-view their assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist and doing therapy. Group supervision can be a valuable and enriching experience for all participants since even though the focus may be on a particular supervisee’s account, it is likely that all participants will discover broader issues and concerns that resonate with their own encounters with clients.”
Professor Ernesto Spinelli was Chair of the Society for Existential Analysis between 1993 and 1999 and is a Life Member of the Society. His writings, lectures and seminars focus on the application of existential phenomenology to the arenas of therapy, supervision, psychology, and executive coaching. He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) as well as an APECS-accredited executive coach and coaching supervisor. In 2000, he was the Recipient of the BPS Division of Counselling Psychology Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Profession. And in 2019, Ernesto received the BPS Award for Distinguished Contribution to Practice. His most recent book, Practising Existential Therapy: The Relational World 2nd edition (Sage, 2015) has been widely praised as a major contribution to the advancement of existential theory and practice. Living up to the existential dictum that life is absurd, Ernesto is also the author of an on-going series of Private Eye novels, the most recent of which, Everything Has A Price, was published in 2023.

Professor Spinelli publications and textbooks are standard reading for many psychotherapy and coaching training programmes around the world. His latest book, Practising Existential Therapy: The Relational World, 2nd edition (2015), was identified as the most influential contemporary text on existential therapeutic practice.” BPS
I find the supervision groups most helpful and supportive on a practical level.
Professor Spinelli is an experienced supervisor who is able to impart his wisdom and knowledge in an authentic manner.
Excellent. Thoroughly enjoyable. Feels safe, contained and exploratory.
