The Centre for Supervision and Team Development has been a leading training organisation for supervision since 1979.

The core of the training is based on the Seven Eyed Model which is more fully described in 'In Love with Supervision' (Shohet R. And Shohet J. 2020) and in 'Supervision in the Helping Professions' - Hawkins, McMahon and Shohet 5th edition) which has sold more than 100,000 copies and been translated into eight languages.

In addition to our face to face courses at Little Venice, London, we are now offering the training online.

  • The courses are experiential which helps to build up a sense of safety and community.
  • The rich mixture of participants with different backgrounds, orientations and experience builds an environment that challenges limiting beliefs and creates a supportive and creative learning experience.
  • Our teaching draws on learning from psychology, psychotherapy, group dynamics, inter-subjectivity, appreciative inquiry and systems thinking.
  • The Seven Eyed Model described in 'In Love with Supervision' is a way of looking and has been found to be equally effective for clinical supervision (both individual and group), managerial supervision, spiritual mentoring and organisational supervision.

The Supervisory Relationship: Difficulties and Delights - with Robin Shohet

Saturday 29th January 2022 - Interactive Webinar on Zoom
Cost: £120 (plus VAT)
9.30am - 4.30pm

To book:

In a world dominated by an audit culture the supervisory relationship is of vital importance. Through good role modeling, it upholds the value of relationship as a vehicle for transformation. How does the supervisor avoid becoming part of a culture that is increasingly moving towards avoidance of risk and defensive practice? In this workshop we will use Appreciative Inquiry as our starting point and courage as our theme - the courage to take risks, be honest and vulnerable and own what might seem like mistakes, but in fact are potentially vehicles for growth.

Robin Shohet has been running supervision courses since 1979. He combines his work as a trainer with team coaching and culture change in organizations using Appreciative Inquiry. He has published widely on the topic of supervision including: 'Supervision in the Helping Professions', 'Passionate Supervision’, 'Supervision as Transformation’ and his latest book ‘In Love with Supervision’.

This workshop will contribute 6 hours towards Continuing Professional Development requirements.

We have an exciting program of workshops coming this year designed for Coaches, Counsellors, CBT practitioners, Doctors, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists and Social Workers.

These courses are presented in partnership between Grayrock and Stanton Psychological Services. For further information and workshops, go to
