Welcome to our supervision page!

We are passionate about ensuring that all those who provide Pastoral Care are receiving good support and engaging in personal and professional development.  This includes chaplains, pastors, pastoral carers, and leaders. 

Professional Pastoral Supervision is a great way to engage in transformational learning, reflective practice and holistic self-care.

To have someone to meet with every 4 – 8 weeks in a safe confidential space to reflect on your ministry, to get encouragement, support and to gain a broader perspective on situations you may be facing.  To assist you to identify what you love to do, your calling, your core values and to better understand why you respond and react the way you do in certain circumstances.  It can also assist with skills training and learning pathways.

Chaplaincy Australia Recognised Supervisors are trained professional supervisors experienced in providing pastoral supervision. You can find them on the pages below.

Chaplaincy Australia Supervision Interns are those who have completed supervision training but are still needing to gain enough hours providing supervision to be recognised as a supervisor.  Interns do not charge for their services.

If you would like to apply to become a Recognised Chaplaincy Australia Supervisor or Supervision Intern follow the link below.

To become a Professional Supervisor you will need to undertake supervision training.  For more information email [email protected]chaplaincyaustralia.com

Vivienne Mountain

Vivienne Mountain

Recognised Supervisor

Vivienne comes from a background in education- primary, secondary and tertiary. Chaplaincy has been a more recent focus leading to Counselling and Supervision. Her doctoral research into children’s perception of prayer came from the awareness that even for children not exposed to a faith community, prayer was something that could help in time of need. Masters studies in Theology and Creative Arts have added to her background understanding and skills. She believes that creativity is an asset in both counselling and supervision where accessing right brain wisdom can often clarify difficult issues.
Her therapeutic methodologies are eclectic: Creative arts, play therapy, existential psychotherapy, narrative theory, psychodynamic therapy, systems theory, positive psychology and attachment focused therapy. These various forms of intervention are overshadowed by the relationship of love from the Holy Spirit.

Glenda Trist

Glenda Trist

Recognised Supervisor

As someone involved in pastoral ministry, you are involved in dynamic, rewarding work. It is also very demanding. Within the context of a safe and trusting supervisory relationship, the process of regular supervision offers space for growth, sustainability and energy. Supervision brings perspective on both your work and yourself within that context. I see supervision as creating space and intentional conversations that move us towards the integration of purpose, values, identity and faith.

My formal qualifications include a Graduate Certificate in Professional Supervision(Pastoral), a Master of Counselling & Human Services, a Specialist Course in Couple Therapy (RA) and a Diploma of Christian Counselling. I have enjoyed many years of leadership in student, women’s & pastoral church-based ministries, counselling, secondary school chaplaincy, hospital pastoral care and clergy wives support. I have long held a deep call to ministry involving the care and growth of others and as a supervisor, I would be excited to partner with you.

Recognised Supervisor

I have several years experience as a professional/ pastoral supervisor. I also have extensive social work experience in working with individuals and families impacted by mental health, domestic violence, sexual assault, disabilities, aged care and palliative care.
