What is SuperVision?
Supervision provides an opportunity to develop deeper understanding of
what you do as a coach.
It encourages different patterns of thinking which will challenge your
tried and tested habits. It will enable the gaining of confidence to
work with many different issues and to know that you are working
effectively. Supervision will enable sole practitioners to develop a
connection with others in the same field of work.
By working in a developmental and learning environment confidence can be
built around current skills, which will enable you to offer many
solutions and interventions keeping your practise up to date and growing
Our clients want results and want their coaches to help them to find the
best way forward.
The aim of this group is to offer coaches the opportunity to look at
their coaching practice, share successes and concerns and develop an
understanding of the relationship between coach and client. To engage in
discussion of live issues which are effecting coaches, so that a way
forward can be generated.

What other participants have gained
We discussed the term 'supervision' at the first meeting, and I can
see now that the title 'Supervision' reflects the thoughts that the
group as a whole provides, “super vision” through sharing thoughts and
looking at coaching from many different angles - this group isn't to do
with being supervised in the traditional sense of the word.”
“I have learnt so much from listening to how other coaches approach
situations. The opportunity to question and talk about concerns with
someone who is very experienced and gaining feedback on my practice has
been challenging and invaluable”
“Presenting a case study made me look at my coaching methods, and
question whether there were other 'angles'/methods I could have used.
Feedback from the group, in a non-judgmental, safe, secure, environment,
helped me look at ways of improving, and I was able to take on board
what I felt would be most useful and comfortable to me.
I am learning so much from other participants. I enjoy being in this
supportive environment, with the ability to share concerns and raise
questions, very important to me as I can be a perfectionist and feel I
'should' know everything!
I feel that we are all respected for who we are, and what we offer to
coaching as individuals.
