Practice Supervision

We help organizations establish clear measures for coaching programmes, deliver valuable continuous development, and hold coaches/consultants to account in developing their practice in alignment to the needs of the organization. Our specialist Ashridge accredited supervisors deliver transformational support to coaches and OD / coaching coordinators. We work collaboratively with coaches to evolve their professional practice and systemic alignment, to raise collective performance.

Professional Supervision

Supervision (also known as Reflective Practice) is for coaches, for those leaders wishing to deepen their impact and for other practitioners at all stages of their development. The focus and nature of supervision may change depending on the experience and level of the coach, but the value of reflecting upon the mastery of your profession does not diminish over time.

Our specialism is in supervising those coaching professionals working with clients who are undergoing significant leadership shifts in style or responsibility and undertaking big transitions. Discerning organizations and individuals recognise the benefit of interrupting day-to-day practice to consciously wake up to what we are really doing – in order to improve our professional practice.

We believe supervision is about provoking deeper consideration of professional practice with compassion – it can be scary to be less than perfect and vulnerable as coaches / consultants.  We also examine how professional practice is aligned relative to the bigger picture.  OD practitioners, consultants, mentors, managers and leaders who see their work as their profession also benefit immensely from the time to critically reflect.

What We Do

We help coaches and consultants who work with senior clients to deepen and develop their practice. We all have blind spots, and even experienced coaches have the capacity to be caught up in unconscious dynamics with clients.

The best supervisors hold an open learning intent, helping you to go deep in your reflections to realise your unique potential. The emphasis is upon collaborative and experiential reflection, building your self-awareness and helping you to consciously detach from transferred client emotions and personal triggers – to be fully in service of your client’s needs.

Managing complexity and multiple stakeholder expectations along with understanding the psychological processes at play in the relationships is part of the professional journey. Our coaching supervisors will help you to find energy, awareness, enhanced embodied connection, and a useful re-examination of your professional practice.

How Do We Supervise?

You are your practice.  We look with compassion and curiosity at how you relate to your clients, your own well being and your engagement with your context.  Our supervision will help you manage the complexity of multiple stakeholder expectations and help you shift your energy, enhance your embodied connection and ask insightful questions.

We provide a boundaried space for reflective practice, a safe environment in which to debrief and detach from a performance mindset.  We aim to help you refine your skills and develop your personal qualities as a coach. We will help you become more aware of our own reactions and responses to clients and client issues.  Often the most powerful observations relate to how you have gotten caught up in unconscious parallel processes that impede the coaching.  These are very rarely identified in standard coaching/consultancy or mentoring conversations.
