coach supervision

“Supervision is a place where a living profession breathes and learns….supervision can be a very important part of taking care of oneself, staying open to new learning, and an indispensable part of the coach’s ongoing self-development, self-awareness and commitment to learning”

Hawkins & Shohet

for the individual coach…

idcoach can offer 1-2-1 supervision for you as a practising coach. Supervision might typically explore…

  • the coach and their practice with challenge, support and feedback from the supervisor in support of their client work
  • the development of the coach’s practice with new perspectives, input and exploration
  • the client and the (organisational and other) systems in which they operate
  • the coach and the (organisational and other) systems in which they operate
  • the impact of those systems on the client, the coach and their relationship
  • the supervisor’s own process within the sessions
  • the supervisor’s relationship with the coach and their practice; the parallel process of the supervision relationship and how that might inform the coach client relationship
  • exploration and illumination of the conscious and unconscious relationship ‘postures’ the coach might take with their clients
  • ethical dilemmas and assurance

idcoach can also offer group supervision for you as a practising coach. Groups typically have four to six coaches in them. Group supervision might typically explore…

  • all of the above, but with the added value of shared experience and input from other coaches in the group
  • the system of your work using other coaches in the group to represent parts of that system in a 3D map or Constellation

Steve at idcoach runs supervision groups each month.
