Supervision with Internationals (from Romeck van Zeyl):

It has been my joy and privilege to practice and teach psychotherapy, supervision and leadership coaching alongside each other in a variety of international contexts since 2003. In the context of working with clients from such enormously varied cultural backgrounds, (Ghana, Japan, Saudi Arabia, USA, Canada, South East Asia, Pakistan, Eastern and Western Europe, Iran) each session is an exploration of a rich, multidimensional and multicultural landscape that is at the same time deeply personal. What I love about it most is that where psychotherapy involves personal growth, supervision extends into the arena of our impact on the world, and unfolding our potential. I love to see a person grow, become more empowered and more themselves, and see them take things on that they didn’t consider themselves capable of at the start of our work together. In the context of clinical supervision, I have seen them deepen their client work and finding confidence as therapists. As an example of the organizational development dimension, it has been a great joy to see someone develop from, first, finding the courage to stand up to overbearing or disrespectful bosses in a very male-dominated culture, to subsequently creating and leading their own NGO.

As to what actually happens in a supervision session: I always start my sessions with a few minutes of mindfulness, so that we have a “baseline” awareness of a relaxed and resourced inner state of body and mind. Then when we proceed to address clinical or organizational issues, any and all changes in body sensation, feeling or thought becomes useful information about the “field” of the issue we are exploring. The most useful information and the most valuable insights invariably emerge from that open awareness rather than from purely rational analysis or attempts to “fix” a situation.

“Romeck has been a mentor, supervisor and inspiration in my journey both professionally and personally. I attribute a large part of finally realizing my dream of creating my own organization to Romeck. His encouraging, gentle yet challenging way in Supervision made me own my vulnerability as my biggest strength.”
– Aysha S. Jamall, CEO, Centre of Inclusive Care, Karachi

“Romeck is the most insightful practitioner I have worked with in more than 25 years as a social worker and human services educator. He has a unique ability to empathize and challenge concurrently in a warm, intuitive and inspiring way. His capacity to engender trust in the most suspicious and traumatized is exceptional.”
– Cath Napier,Capacity Development Facilitator, Australia
