Group Supervision for Coaches

25 February 2016


The aim of supervision is to develop coaches in the service of their work with clients. Supervision provides a space in which supervisees can reflect on themselves and their practice.

Our group supervision programme is for coaches working in organisations as internal coaches and coaches working in private practice.

Our group supervision is an opportunity to connect with others in a supportive learning environment. The groups will be facilitated by Isolde Norris and Pamela Fay.

Coaches will have an opportunity to bring topics that are arising for them in their practice to the session, get an opportunity to work on those topics and gain new insights and perspectives from their peers and facilitators.

Participation entails agreeing to full confidentiality. The facilitators will contract with the group on ways of working and boundaries at the first session and subsequent sessions.


Best practice dictates that coaches undertake regular supervision and it is a requirement for accreditation. Our sessions run for three hours six times per year. Coaches can join the group for one or more sessions or can commit to joining for the year.

As well as the benefits of one to one supervision, group supervision provides:

  • Access to two supervisors and a network of peers
  • A structured, safe environment to reflect on your practice
  • New awareness and insights about your coaching practice from your peer group
  • New learnings about coaching approaches and practices outside of your own work
  • Access to experiential exercises in sessions to support your practice


There will be a maximum of eight participants and minimum of four per session (excluding facilitators).


The benefit of group supervision is learning from one another, listening to new perspectives and gaining new awareness on topics that are important to our practices and us as coaches. It is an opportunity to step back from your work as a coach and reflect on your coaching practice and the system that you are working in.

Both supervisors take a psychological approach to coaching as that has been our training in the UCD Smurfit School and Pamela has trained as a relational coach in Ashridge Business School in the UK.

It is our intention that two of the six supervision sessions will focus on a specific area of professional development/theory that is decided by the group. As well as being grounded in the theory of coaching supervision, we work in an experiential way. In supervision we will use bodywork and creative approaches to support the work that we do.
