Coach Supervision

What is Coach Supervision?

Coach supervision is a place where you partner with your coach supervisor to recognise and celebrate your wins, share and work through your challenges, and reflect and develop as a coach.

Supervision is a supportive relationship fostering your professional development as a coach. Regular sessions with a coach supervisor supports your coaching practice and your well-being so you can perform at your best to meet the needs of your coaching clients.

Reflection and reflective practice are key components of effective supervision. The Association for Coaching has developed an excellent resource What is Coaching Supervision? guide to help you understand more about what coaching supervision is and how it can benefit you and your coaching practice.

EMCC Supervision Competence Framework

The supervision relationship facilitates the development of coaches, provides support and promotes professional standards in coaching practice. You can learn more about coaching supervisor competencies at the EMCC website.

How often should I have supervision? You can have supervision as often as you like (or need). However, as an accredited coach with any of the main coaching bodies, there are recommended hours of coaching supervision you must have each year. For example, as an EMCC Master Practitioner Coach/Mentor, I am required to have one hour of coaching supervision per 35 hours of coaching or at least 1 hour of supervision per quarter. Check with your accrediting body for their requirements. 

A safe space for reflective dialogue with a practising supervisor, supporting the supervisee’s practice, development and well-being.

Master Practitioner Coach/Mentor and Registered Career Development Professional

As a seasoned coach and EMCC-accredited Master Practitioner Coach/Mentor with over 20 years of coaching experience, I offer coach supervision to coaches who wish to further develop their coaching practice and meet their obligations to the Global Code of Ethics for Coaches, Mentors and Supervisors.

With empathy, compassion and professionalism, I provide a safe, supportive space for reflection, insight and growth. I also bring creativity, curiosity and humour, partnering with you to be your best self.

While my approach is integrative, although I coach and supervise with a predominantly person-centred, strengths-based and solution-focused approach. 

I am currently building coaching supervision hours to become an accredited Supervisor with the EMCC and the Association for Coaching. See below for special discount pricing available.

To understand the differences between coaching, mentoring and supervision I’ve put together the following definitions:

What is Coaching?

In defining coaching, it can be helpful to look to the professional coaching bodies for definitions:

Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”


A collaborative solution-focused, results-orientated and systematic process in which the coach facilitates the enhancement of work performance, life experience, self-directed learning and personal growth of the coachee.

For me, coaching is about partnering with a coachee to support them in their personal and professional development. I do this through powerful and effective questioning to facilitate self-understanding, helping my clients overcome challenges, identify opportunities for growth and ultimately, thrive.

While there are countless coaches in the market, not all of them are trained or accredited by professional associations. Working with a suitably trained and accredited coach is vital and it can be helpful to understand the competencies of a professional coach.

As an EMCC accredited Master Practitioner Coach/Mentor I have been through a rigorous accreditation process to assess my knowledge, skills, and experience. The EMCC has developed a comprehensive guide to coaching competencies which you can view on their website.

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring can be especially useful for new coaches who benefit from conversations, guidance, and support from a more experienced coach. It can be daunting starting out as a coach, especially if you are also launching your own coaching practice. With almost 20 years of experience as a coach in private practice, I’ve encountered and overcome many of the same challenges and obstacles you face. As your mentor, we can zero in on whatever challenge or opportunity you face at any given time to support your personal and professional success. 

Experienced coaches can also benefit from mentoring as the mentoring relationship is a shared one characterised by a dynamic exchange of professional experience. Mentoring has been shown to boost confidence, performance and lead to improved well-being. 

Mentoring is a learning relationship, involving the sharing of skills, knowledge, and expertise between a mentor and mentee through developmental conversations, experience sharing, and role modelling.
