"Shelley is a fantastic supervisor. She is warm, compassionate, supportive and containing. Shelley has helped me develop my skills and private therapy practice by sharing her expertise and experience and guiding me to become a better therapist. I have grown and changed as a result of our supervision and know that I am more adherent to specific models (eg dbt) as well as a better psychologist overall. She creates a supportive, non-judgemental space to explore the impact of the work I am doing and generate coherent, theory driven formulations. I come away from supervision feeling energised, clear about the direction for my clinical work and inspired to learn more."
Clinical Psychologist and DBT therapist
"Shelley has been my supervisor for the past 12 months and I am so grateful she has given me an opportunity to learn from her wisdom and knowledge of CFT. Shelley starts off our supervision sessions with a short breathing practice which grounds me with calmness then, continuous to offer me support through her warm curiosity by checking in to see how I am, and how I am feeling within my client work. I feel safely held by Shelley’s kindness and sensitivity when I express vulnerabilities while I explore my genuine thoughts and feelings around the challenges I face.
Shelley guides me to deepen my understanding of what is evolving within my therapeutic relationships and my client’s presentations. Shelley encourages and challenges me so respectfully, I never feel judged, misunderstood, or fearful to disclose the different parts of me that show up reflecting on my client work. I have gained so much confidence over the past year with Shelley’s compassionate feedback of my growth and development. I highly recommend Shelley as a caring, empathic, and experienced supervisor who I feel so connected to."
Qualified Counsellor, CFT and CBT therapist
"Dr Shelley Kerr is highly organized and dedicated to those she supervises. Supervision was regularly scheduled, tapes were almost always listened to prior to the session, and she was always on the end of the phone for any urgent questions.
Stylistically, Dr. Kerr is so warm, compassionate, validating, and genuine; I really felt that supervision was a comfortable and safe space to talk about my concerns and worries about giving therapy to at times quite high-risk cases.
She is also an incredibly knowledgeable therapist, who is continuingly pushing herself to learn more about compatible therapies, therapeutic techniques, and research to help her clients and the people she is supervising."
