My own coaching practice has benefited immeasurably through supervision and I am a keen advocate of it.  I provide supervision both to individual coaches and in groups.

At the heart of my supervision practice is the aim of creating a collaboration which builds the coach's own capacity for reflection, on how they coach and who they are when they coach. 

The nature of this collaboration depends closely on the stage the coach has reached in their professional development, so that the coach can experience a balance of support, challenge and guidance, of direction and reflection that works best for them.

This means that supervision agendas can vary widely including:

  • practical and ethical matters around contracting
  • learning about or signposting towards new techniques and tools
  • working with what arises in the direct experience of being with a client

I have a particular interest in supervision for internal coaches, where the impact of the wider system and the coach's unspoken role as representing the organisation may add an extra layer of complexity to the coach-client relationship.

I am also a registered Tutor with the ILM for coaching supervision qualification programmes.
