Group Supervision for Coaches


I hold group supervision sessions where my role is to help coaches to take a “super-vision” of their own coaching practice, and what they are doing to help your coachees. It attends to the blind, deaf and dumb spots that coaches may not be fully aware of.

“The purpose of supervision is learning that leads to the continuous development of the conscious competence of the supervisee and the supervisor and to a higher level of practice. At its core, supervision implies an accountability to learning – that of the supervisor and supervisee – that may extend to that of the systems of which they are a part.” Cochrane and Newton

This is a real example of a group coaching supervision experience.


Issues brought to supervision

  • Organisational contracting and the complexities involved
  • Coach/client boundaries, conflicts of interest, changing relationships
  • Coach well-being: Staying safe, managing overwhelm, self-care, resourcefulness, authenticity and ethics
  • Adult to adult relationships and professional behaviour

What we did together

  • Created a safe space through contracting and openness to allow for vulnerability, and to challenge and be challenged
  • Shared the time and gave each other the time to think and talk in a structured way
  • Used a variety of tools, materials and approaches, which could equally be used in coaching
  • Heard each other as human beings
  • Accepted and valued the differences in the group
  • Modelled professional behaviour

Outcomes post-supervision

  • Owning their individual coaching philosophies and approach
  • Confident, coherent, congruent in the way they coach
  • Learned to trust themselves, reducing performance anxiety
  • Getting clarity on specific cases, and taking action to shift the client
  • Leaving each time feeling resourced and lighter

Testimonials

“This was my first experience of group supervision and I wish I had invested in it much earlier in my coaching career.  Supervision is not a cost, it is a gift to yourself, both as a professional coach and as a person.  Clare is an expert in holding the space, facilitating the process and growing you as a coach.”

“I have found Clare to be professional, knowledgeable and enabling.  I trust her.  What I really value is her openness to feedback and her role-modelling growth and growing as a coach/supervisor herself.  This is courageous and enabling.”
