Cheryl is a registered Supervisor with PACFA, ACA, Australian Association of Supervisors (AAOS) and Australian Clinical Supervision Association (ACSA). Her approach to supervision is to provide a safe and supportive space where counsellors can explore their work with clients and their own personal and professional development.
Cheryl provides feedback and guidance on client work as well as supporting the counsellor in their professional and personal growth. "I see my role as Supervisor as one of holding the counsellor so they can hold their client. Sometimes Counsellors just need to spend the session focusing on themselves and their own process or responses to clients, other times we talk about specific clients and discuss the most effective approach. Really, it's about me being totally present for the Therapist, and doing my best to meet their particular needs at that time."
Cheryl also facilitates supervision groups on a regular basis online and in Gardenvale.
Regular monthly online supervision groups of 2 hours duration. These groups are for regular attendees who wish to be part of an ongoing group of core participants. This encourages group members to develop familiarity and a sense of safety, allowing honest sharing and feedback, providing greater opportunities for exploration, growth and development.

Feedback from participants of Supervision Groups
"Cheryl Taylor is a highly experienced facilitator and supervisor and I have found her workshops to be fertile ground for learning and open discussion that accommodates the perspectives and experiences of individual participants. I have attended several of her workshops and highly recommend them to anyone looking to broaden their knowledge base and build their confidence as a practitioner." WK, Werribee and Melbourne
"These specialized supervision/workshop sessions are a great way to expand our networking with new colleagues. New knowledge is gained and sessions such as these always arm us with new perceptions and perspectives around a given topic. This in turn breathes new life and energy into our own delivery and methods of counseling clients. These sessions also provide validation that we are not alone with personal issues." JB, Williamstown
