Supervision

Professional supervision is a transformative learning experience essential for caring professions, such as church leaders, chaplains, healthcare and social workers.‡

Five benefits of supervision:

  1. Enables you to reflect openly and courageously on yourself and your work.

  2. Enhances a safe and supportive place to discern your possible vulnerabilities, biases and blind spots.

  3. Ensures you and your workplace sustain healthy, moral and ethical boundaries.

  4. Explore the wisdom and skills you need to navigate the challenges of your work better.

  5. Embrace fresh perspectives about your soul and role.

Supervision is a base camp where batteries are recharged.
Nicki Weld

Supervision Sessions

Supervision can happen face-to-face (Perth metro area) or online (via Zoom or Skype).

Eight to twelve sessions per year are recommended.

Fee: $130 per session

Australian Association of Supervision

Rob has a Graduate Certificate in Professional Supervision and is an associate member of the Australasian Association of Supervision.

‡ The Royal Commission’s Final Report states that all people in religious or pastoral ministry should engage in professional supervision with a trained professional or pastoral supervisor. [Recommendation 16.45, Royal Commission Into Institutional Response To Child Sexual Abuse, 2017]

Mentoring

Mentoring is a relational and conversational journey into deeper awareness and profound transformation.

Mentoring focuses on who you are rather than what you do.

Through our mentoring partnership, I will:

  1. Listen with empathy and discernment.
  2. Ask questions to increase self-awareness and discern the next steps.
  3. Offer you insights from my experience and extensive research.
  4. Provide support and encouragement.

SHAME OFF YOU

Unshaming Mental Health Struggles

Do you have an irritating feeling inside? Is there something mysterious hindering you, pulling you down, and holding you back?

Shame is an intimidating sense of inferiority, which could be causing you to feel the way you do.

SHAME OFF YOU focuses on the shame connected with mental health struggles. It will take you on a pilgrimage for your soul, embracing the ancient wisdom of the Biblical narrative of shame and grace.

Read more

Underlying this ancient and timeless wisdom is a down-to-earth biography of Rob Mason’s journey of steadfast faith in God while navigating through the turmoil of shame, chronic anxiety, and panic attacks. Be assured that this book is readable, relatable, and profoundly practical.

Each chapter offers a fresh and insightful perspective on the nature of shame and the collateral damage it causes. You will gain invaluable knowledge of the catastrophic birth of shame, shame triggers, and the destructive shame narrative.

Don’t settle for concealing, distracting, and numbing your shame. There is no magical formula of recovery or a one-size-fits-all solution. The way out of shame is a daring journey that encompasses courageous vulnerability and dramatic ebbs and flows.

Are you ready to be a shame buster? Start reading and start moving in partnership with the Holy Spirit into shame-free living.
