Coaching Supervision

Why supervision?

Undertaking regular supervision is an essential aspect of any coaching practice and an important way for you to be able to explore issues, including ethical dilemmas that arise for you in your coaching. Whilst there is no obligation for you to receive supervision as a coach, it is a way to ensure that you are demonstrating best practice and it is recommended by all the major coaching bodies.

One-to-One Supervision

Our team of experienced coaching supervisors are all qualified to the level of the ILM Level 7 Diploma in Coaching Supervision. This means that you can be assured that your supervision is delivered by experts in their field.

We offer individual one-to-one supervision, either in person or via video conferencing.

Receiving one-to-one supervision will help you to ensure that you are maximising the quality of your coaching; engaging in clear contracting; maintaining healthy boundaries and addressing any impact that complex coaching scenarios may be having on you personally.

In addition there is time devoted to exploring your development as a coach and the development of your career as a coach, whether that is as an internal coach within an organisation or as a freelance coach.

Coaching Supervision

Group Supervision

We run bi-monthly coaching supervision groups established for coaches interested in reflecting on and improving their coaching interactions.

Membership of one of the groups will help you to ensure that you are maximising the quality of your coaching; engaging in clear contracting; maintaining healthy boundaries and addressing any impact that complex coaching scenarios may be having on you personally.

In addition there is time devoted to exploring each coach’s development of their own coaching expertise and also the development of their career as a coach.

Membership of one of our supervision groups entitles you to attend six group supervision sessions every year and to have four 60 minute one-to-one Skype supervision sessions.

What does the group supervision session involve?

A whole morning of coaching supervision in a small group setting, with time dedicated to you, your coaching interactions, your development as a coach and your coaching career.

A maximum of six coaches in each supervision group, meeting up once every two months under the guidance of the group’s supervisor. This will allow you to regularly explore what is emerging for you in your coaching world.

What will I be able to explore within the supervision session?

Client Situations – There are times when we, as coaches, find ourselves facing client situations that we are unsure how to deal with or, having dealt with them, are concerned whether we have chosen the right path. Having a safe space in which to reflect upon and explore live coaching scenarios and to be able to benefit from the advice of an experienced coaching supervisor is a valuable resource.Group supervision offers the added dimension of hearing the perspectives of other coaches that are in a similar position to yourself. This group of fellow coaches offers you a supervision ‘team’ to be able to build a bond of trust with; peers with whom you will feel comfortable sharing your thoughts.

Coaching Development – As well as being able to focus on client interactions, supervision also offers you the chance to explore your development as a coach and consider future paths and directions that might be of interest to you.

Career Development – The third important aspect of supervision is having the opportunity to think about your coaching career and how you might start to develop that, either as part of a larger organisation or as an independent coach.
