Home » Supervision

I specialise in working with early career coaches (under three years), newly qualified and training coaches. I supervise coaches seeking ICF ACC accreditation.

I also offer a combination coaching/supervision model to support mind/body practitioners and coaches to grow their practice and professional confidence. My passion is about exploring what is going on for you, the practitioner or coach.

What is Supervision?

Supervision is a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space to explore whatever impacts on, or arises in, your practice and in your client relationships. It supports you whilst you support others.

It focuses on three areas: professional, developmental and personal, through the facilitation of three key mechanisms; feedback, support and challenge.

Supervision is primarily an enabling process which enhances the value of your work though further developing your awareness and skills.

The process illuminates what might otherwise stay hidden in your work, surpassing what individual self-reflection is able to affect.

We work together to establish trust and transparency to reflect on your experiences, challenges and processes and allow difficult issues and underlying emotions to be resolved.

What is Coaching Supervision?

A coaching-based approach to Supervision focuses on the practitioner and:

  • a collaborative conversation using the 7-eyed model as a framework to ensure variety in focus;
  • all aspects of your practice, not just presentation of case/clients;
  • a non-hierarchical model of supervisor as facilitator not ‘expert’ assessing your work in your field;
  • supports exploration rather than prescription;
  • how who you are shows up in your work;
  • the relationship between the personal and professional;
  • what may be holding you back or where you are getting in your own way;
  • supporting you to develop and clarify your own approach/style and beliefs within your field;
  • adapts to the professional ethics, practices and framework of your field;
  • an expansive approach to supervision.

Why have Supervision?

Supervision is not just for when you have difficulties or ‘client issues’:

  • assurance you are developing you practice to your full potential;
  • ensures you are working to the highest standards;
  • affirmation that you are serving your clients to the best of your ability;
  • reinforcement of your strengths and focus on areas you may want to develop;
  • resolves the underlying and unattended;
  • ensures you don’t get stuck with clients or in your approach;
  • insight into the psychodynamics of relationships;
  • different models, techniques and theories;
  • wider awareness and greater insight into yourself and your actions;
  • challenge, fresh perspective and creative input;
  • greater revitalisation and confidence in your work.

This programme offers a combination of flexibility and structure so we will work with what most needs the attention to develop your practice. Coaching will reveal what is holding you back in growing your business, mentoring if needed will address the focus/action required and supervision will reveal what’s showing up in your day to day client work.

Across a time-frame of your choice we will focus on establishing the foundations; who you are as a practitioner, your approach, your methodology, your niche. Your clients, your client relationships, your message to them, your personal challenges, the technicalities of sessions and the impact of the context/system on your practice. All mapped against the standards and ethics that frame your professionalism.
