HOW DOES SUPERVISION WORK?
While each supervision relationship is different
this section gives you an idea on what is involved:
How do I get started?
Coaching to arrange a free consultation. The purpose of the
consultation is to give you an experience of what it feels
like to work with me, to answer any questions you might have
and for both of us to decide whether we would like to continue
offer one on one and group supervision in person, over the telephone and via Skype. The duration can be between
30 minutes and several hours. Telephone group supervision is limited to 4 participants, in person group supervision is limited to 10 participants.
coaches find it beneficial to have supervision on a regular
(every four to six weeks) and ongoing basis. Working with
you regularly over time enables me to spot potential patterns
in your behaviour, to feedback themes I might notice
over time and to work with you on immediate needs as well
as your long-term development goals. Moreover, buyers of coaching
increasingly demand coaches who engage in supervision as part
of their commitment to effective, ethical and safe working
What you bring to sessions is entirely confidential. I ask participants of group supervision to sign a separate confidentiality agreement to ensure that everybody feels safe.
What happens in a typical first session?
Part of the first session is an in-depth discussion on how
we are going to work together. This includes understanding
how you best learn, how I can be most effective in facilitating
your progress and how you and I know that supervision is useful
for you. We will agree on the outcomes to be achieved
through supervision and how and when we review them.
We will clarify our roles, responsibilities and ways of providing
feedback. I strongly believe that a clear contract creates
the freedom for both of us to fully be ourselves and to focus
on what is most important and productive for you.
for supervision sessions
expect you to prepare a topic for each supervision session.
Topics can include anything from specific client situations
to observations across your coaching practice.
