Improve your coaching practice through group supervision

Whether you have a supervisor currently or not, group supervision can enhance your coaching skills and be a great place to learn.

if you don’t have a supervisor currently …

… this may be your opportunity to experience supervision in a safe, small group of like-minded coaches. You may be reassured about the value of supervision, hooked even. And group supervision is very cost effective. It may provide a stepping stone to individual supervision perhaps?

and if you already have a supervisor …

… have you tried group supervision? It offers a quite different experience. You will learn as much from the other coaches explorations of their client practice, as from your own. Group supervision offers a rich dialogue with input from the other coaches

when we meet …

… we may explore client work together, or we may use the time to look at our practice by exploring common themes in coaching such as boundaries, ethics, our stance as a coach or maybe we will build a client or coach constellation to surface what is really going on in the system?

sessions will be …

… three hours and typically there will be between four and six coaches present. They will be held face to face near Reading in Berkshire. We will decide together how we use the time

your supervisor …

… will be Steve. Steve has been coaching for 15 years and supervising coaches in groups and one to one for 8 years. He is a qualified Coaching Signatures Supervisor, a Master NLP Practitioner and a Systemic Constellations Practitioner.

it works like this …

… you sign up to the group which will run for 12 months or so. You have six opportunities to join the group, so roughly every couple of months. The investment is £540 for the year. That’s just £30 per hour of 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

in support of internal organisational coaching…

If you have internal coaches working in your organisation, how do you

  • keep them and their clients safe?
  • ensure they are working to an ethical and legal framework?
  • ensure the quality of their coaching continues to develop?
  • support them reflecting on and developing their coaching practice?

idcoach can offer individual or group supervision for your internal coaches

idcoach can support you in designing an approach to supervision for your internal coaches, including offering a fully accredited supervision training programme should you wish to develop your own supervisors.

in support of internal coaching

If you have, or are building, an internal coaching capability, you have internal coaches, but

  • where do those coaches go for a coach when your practice is internal?
  • how might you provide mentor coaching?
  • how are you developing and widening your coaches experience and practice?

Good coaches have coaches, so idcoach specialise in coaching for internal coaches.

for individuals

We work with people one to one;  people seeking to understand their truth and to find freedom, happiness, hope, fulfilment, success or peace. Sometimes they are seeking meaning – who are they and what will their legacy be?  Sometimes they are seeking a new direction and sometimes they simply feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious or are lacking in confidence.

If you’re interested, please contact us here

Coaching testimonial

“I have been fortunate to have been coached by Steve and also been on the receiving end of his wisdom as I developed myself as a coach through the Partnership’s coaching programme, which Steve was instrumental in designing and leading. Steve has an enormous amount of experience to pull on. He uses an amazing variety of coaching techniques and models but it’s his ability to ask the most searching and challenging questions getting to the heart of an issue but in a way that is immensely supportive that enables a coachee to make huge breakthroughs. I can’t recommend him highly enough.”
