Quality of connection in coaching and supervision: the role of Gestalt Quality of connection in coaching and supervision: the role of Gestalt Presentation Transcript

  • Quality of Connection in Coaching and Supervision – the Role of Gestalt Marion Gillie
  • Levels of connection
    • My client / supervisee’s connection with him / herself ( how I facilitate their self-awareness )
    • My connection with myself ( my awareness of what this person evokes in me )
    • My connection with my client / supervisee ( do we really make ‘contact’ )
  • Coaching and supervision need a frame of reference on:
    • The nature of human functioning
    • The process of human growth and change
    • A methodology for intervening
  • We are hard wired to see wholes
  • We are hard wired to see wholes Cna yuo raed tihs? The phaonmneal pweor of the hman mnid, aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.
  • And to organise perception as figure and ground
  •  
  • The Here and Now
    • Phenomenological exploration:
    • What is this client / supervisee’s lived experience right now as we work
    • How are they making meaning
    • Meaning results from the totality of their unique personal history, thoughts, feelings, conscious and unconscious beliefs, anxieties and fears, memories of past experiences, hopes and aspirations etc.
    • AND
    • I am part of their meaning-making
  • Human change and growth
    • Change happens through relationship
    • The ‘self’ is not a fixed entity but is a process always in flux
    • Critical to growth is the quality of connection through Presence and Dialogue
  • Human change and growth
    • “Change occurs when one becomes what one is, not when he tries to become what he is not”
    • The Paradoxical Theory of Change , Beisser 1970
    • Forced change diverts energy into rebellion
    • Gestalt encourages the quality of connection with how it really is , freeing energy for genuine choice
  • Gestalt’s methodology for intervening
    • Phenomenological exploration
    • Active experimentation
    • To raise awareness, identify the real need (figure of interest) and mobilise energy towards appropriate action
