My aim as your coach supervisor is to provide the space for you to become the best coach you can be. My intention is that you learn to use your coaching presence in the most helpful way for your clients. This means trusting yourself, allowing yourself to show vulnerability in sessions and maintain the boundaries of “Ask Not Tell”. I aim to create an informal supervisory relationship which will help you maintain ethical standards in your contracting and non-judgemental stance with your clients. I’ll also give you feedback about some of the patterns I notice you falling into with your clients which may limit your coaching impact.
As a coach supervisor, I am able to model psychologically-based approaches that underpin positive coaching relationships. My coaching and supervision practice is underpinned by the Schools of Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. Therefore, when appropriate, I will model Use of Self and Here and Now approaches which are also key components of a powerful coaching relationship. As a past Programme Director of the Novum (formerly PB Coaching) Post Graduate Certificate in Business and Executive Coaching, I am able to draw on a range of theory from Systems Perspectives, Gestalt, Mindfulness and Bodywork in Coaching. If you are completing an EMCC accredited course I am able to support you in that process.
I am part of the teaching team for Sheffield Hallam’s Masters in Coaching and Mentoring and regularly supervise Coach Trainees on this course. I also designed and deliver Leeds Beckett’s ILM Level 5 in Coaching and Mentoring providing indivdiual and group supervision for those trainees too. With PB Coaching (Novum-UK) I gained my Supervision qualification in 2014, and have been regularly seeing coaching supervisees on a weekly basis since then.
If you’re close to Leeds then we can meet in my Session Room in LS6, otherwise I am happy to work on-line with you. My supervision charges are very reasonable .
