Coaching Supervision provides professional support for those who have coaching responsibilities within an organisation and also for coaches who run their own coaching practice. It is an opportunity for both internal and external coaches to enhance their skills, reflect on their practice and ensure consistency and quality.
Denise has over 10 years of experience as a Professional Certified Coach and is a qualified Coach Supervisor with an ILM 7 Certificate and Diploma in Coaching Supervision. As both a Professional Coach and Coach Supervisor she works to the ICF Code of Ethics.
Coaching Supervision is ideal for those with responsibility for coaching others:
- L&D Managers / Business Partners
- HR Managers / Business Partners
- Internal /Peer coaches
- Recently qualified coaches new to practice
- Qualified coaches running their own coaching practice
Coaching Supervision can be delivered for individuals or groups on site or virtually by Zoom.
Coaching Supervision can help those responsible for coaching others to:
- Develop coaching skills
- Reflect on their practice
- Confidentially review and uncover ethical issues
- Manage boundaries
- Develop skills, knowledge, resilience and confidence
- Explore unconscious behaviours or biases
- Maintain and raise standards of coaching across the organisation
- Avoid getting caught up in unconscious “stuff” that impedes the coaching
- Building resilience, manage boundaries and reduce burnout
The frequency of Coaching Supervision sessions is dependent on the number of clients an internal or external coach has but typically sessions occur every 8 to 12 weeks.
Building regular supervision into a coaching practice means coaches can work more effectively and safely with their clients. Denise can provide both group supervision and individual supervision.
Coaching can be a challenging activity so Coaching Supervision provides a structured opportunity to help those responsible for coaching to reflect on their practice and continually develop their skills. Coaching Supervision also acts as quality assurance for an organisation and ensures that everyone who coaches takes a consistent approach.
Coaching Supervision is required as part of the Code of Ethics/Practice for members of AC, ICF or EMCC. It is a hugely valuable tool, supporting coaches at all stages of their development to expand their range, deepen their practice and develop their own ‘internal supervisor’
All coaches have blind spots and can get caught up in unconscious dynamics with clients. As a qualified Coach Supervisor, Denise gives coaches a safe and confidential space for coaches to engage in reflective conversation, helping them to build awareness of their own reactions and responses.
- Opportunity for coaches to reflect on themselves and their coaching practice
- Different approaches to common issues that clients bring to coaching
- Support for you and your clients
- Help to maintain and raise quality standards across the coaching profession
- A place to review potential ethical issues
- Support to avoid getting caught up in unconscious “stuff” that impedes the coaching
- Support building resilience, managing boundaries and reducing burnout
Each Coaching Supervision agreement is unique. Individual Coaching Supervision pays particular attention to developing confidence and fine-tuning skills. Group Coaching supervision helps identify trends and issues within the organisation and enables internal coaches to support each other. Denise will agree on roles and responsibilities and areas of focus with the coach.
Denise is an amazing coach who has gained my total respect and trust. I tried for a long time to find a coach that challenged me professionally and whom I trusted to challenge and coach me personally. Denise is intuitive and creative in her coaching and pushes me in a way that no other professional has done before. I admire and respect her ability to tune in to the issues in hand and to apply the right amount of questioning and support to enable me to find answers that address today’s challenges. I highly recommend Denise.
I have experienced Denise’s coaching and training, at a one to one session, and also a formal training session at Mersey Maritime Ltd. As well as incisive coaching expertise, Denise provides very practical tools for personal development, which proved invaluable to me during a time of significant career transition. I have one of Denise’s strategic planning techniques drawn on my office noticeboard, and use it regularly. Denise has a unique and highly effective approach. No jargon. No loud, over-demonstrative presentations. Just solid and insightful training and coaching.
Coaching supported me through a career change. I now work for a much bigger company in a completely different sector and I am receiving some great feedback. The scope of the role is bigger, the salary is bigger, the package is better and my whole standard of living has improved.
The biggest benefit of coaching to me professionally was the ability to prioritise the strategic and operational goals needed to take our charity forwards and to bring coaching in to help others. We have now started to roll out coaching to everyone within the organisation.
Denise helped me to take my business to the next level. Anybody wishing to develop themselves should really take the time to speak with Denise. She is highly inspirational, immensely personable and has the skills and attitude to make a substantial difference to her clients.
Working with Denise has helped me to see how much I have achieved in my role and how much Irish Community Care have grown in my time there. But I have also realised that there is still more work that I can do, so it reaffirmed my passion for my job and allowed me to refocus my energy. I also understand myself so much better now. Denise has helped me to reaffirm my self-confidence. I can recognise that I have strong leadership skills and a good vision where I couldn’t before.
