What is Supervision?
Supervision is – A process of reflecting on your work with a Coach Supervisor. This helps the coach to become aware of relevant strengths and weaknesses, enabling them to become stronger and more confident across a range of conversations. The Coaching Supervisor explores and clarifies the relationships and conversations between the Coach and Client, enabling coaches to be effective in every ‘coaching moment’.
Coaches in supervision often refer to the relief of having time and space to think about particular aspects of their work and especially to think/reflect with a trusted colleague who will explore and/or practice with them and contribute to their understanding. This support enables the coach to contain and resolve some of the more challenging parts of their work:
Jo has a Diploma in Coaching Supervision from the Coaching Supervision Academy UK.
“Jo has helped me see things from different perspectives. Through one of the most challenging times in my career, Jo has been an important resource for me.
She provided practical and professional support to help push and stretch me to develop my coaching and my business. I would highly recommend her as a coach and coaching supervisor.”
Annick, Coach (France)
I worked with Jo last year in a supervision role.
it was a very difficult for me because I had to face a lot of personal issues and I was afraid all these trouble could have an impact on my coaching role.
Jo proved great qualities of listening and was very helpful for me. she was a great support and advised me on a very efficient way.
Thanks a lot again Jo 🙂

ICF- Supervision for CPD
It has become recognized practice that coaches at every stage in their coaching journey continually seek development, both personally in terms of deepening their coaching presence and awareness, and professionally in terms of competencies, ethics and standards. One of the growing trends internationally for undertaking such development is engaging in the practice of ‘coaching supervision’ similar in concept to the supervision which supports many behavioral science professions.
A common misconception is that coaching supervision is just very high coaching ability and that no additional training/experience is required to serve as a supervisor. The awareness that specialized training is needed is gaining interest but not yet fully embraced by all wishing to serve in this role. Jo is a qualified Coach Supervisor having completed a Diploma in Supervision from the Coaching Supervision Academy UK in 2014.
Supervision has now been accepted by ICF as an option to include in your CPD hours for credential renewal. This is detailed on the ICF website under your specific credential renewal requirements.
