Vinayheadsq10WHAT SUPERVISION INVOLVES

I am available for online sessions, or in person in Los Angeles

General

Supervision is available for managers and and those working in human services. I take a Gestalt approach, applying the principles to your particular setting. My orientation is around awareness, authenticity, empowerment and relationship.

Therapists

I offer two types of supervision for therapists. 

Reporting-type supervision is a standard form, involving conversations about work related matters and client management.

Direct supervision occurs via witnessing a client session. This could be by video, audio, or live. Feedback is given after watching the session. This is a little more complex to organise, but allows for a highly quality of supervision.

Videos can be sent via an email uploader such as Dropbox, Dropsend, etc.

Supervision can occur one to one, or in a group setting. Similarly, in the group, it can either be reporting format, or direct, using co-participants in the group. 

Rates

Professional supervision is US$175 per hour.

TESTIMONIALS

ROHAN ~ Medical Doctor and Consultant

Steve is a truly gifted teacher and therapist who is clearly practising his calling. He brings wisdom, genuine caring and compassion to our sessions and he has helped me finally navigate a path towards a healthier and more skilful way to approach anxiety, stress and behaviours that were damaging to my relationships and my work. I have seen psychologists before and been left with little. This is the first time that I have seen genuine changes to my mental well-being that has improved the quality of my relationships, work and life.

NATALIE ~ Acupuncturist, R.N

I first met Steve through a presentation he did on Family Constellations. This was a very powerful and releasing experience. I since contacted him for personal work and professional supervision. I have benefitted greatly from continued sessions, I feel aware of the roles I play in my life, and have stopped blaming others for the decisions I have made. I feel in control of the direction my life takes now. This, amongst a myriad of other revelations, has given me greater freedom and a sustained sense of happiness.

PAUL ~ Drug & Alcohol counsellor

Four years training with Steve Gunther was life changing. I learnt so much about myself and how I am in the world, how am I with clients and how to deal with and engage any person in any situation.

I gained the skills to practice Gestalt Psychotherapy and the confidence to do it in my own style. I have gone on to expand my Gestalt training into Community Development and helping effect societal change.

Steve has a hands on assured teaching style which is just as effective as his brilliant personal counselling work - powerful and profound, yet guided by the clients and the students.

JENNY ~ Therapist

I have know Steve for 18 years, experiencing him as Gestalt teacher and therapist. I have grown to have a great deal of respect for him and have always valued all that he strives for. He is a person of great integrity, intelligence, wisdom, energy, sincerity and care.

Added to this has always been a commitment to his own personal and professional growth, demonstrating itself in humility, confidence and determination. I have always felt that he has had my best interests at heart, which resulted in me being gently guided towards taking risks, in healing my past and leaping into my future.

The 'work' that I have done with Steve over the years has helped shape my life and the person I am today, which is greatly fullfilled and happy.

SHIRLEY ~ Psychotherapist

Having been a client of Steve's, I confidently recommend his services to any client who is seeking therapy. I found him to be contactful, empathic, intuitive. fully understanding of and tuned in to the issues I presented. I felt very safe in his care and professional expertise, and I experienced personal growth, increased self awareness and complete satisfaction through the consultations I had with him.

BRYANT ~ Natural therapist and Homeopath

Gestalt Therapy with Steve Gunther gave me two focal insights in particular. One was how my energy moved between my ‘introvert’ and ‘extrovert’ self, and the other how my physical body carried the demand I placed on myself as expectation.

One session I clearly remember was Steve helping me elicit an image of a ball and chain around my left leg (which was chronically arthritic). As I processed those feelings and felt images, I saw shifts including release of tension, emotionally and energetically, over the period. I am very grateful to Steve for his devotion and his art, and for his very astute processing skills. Good memories.
