    Coaching Supervision

    Coaching Supervision is a must-have for the professional coach of today. Coaching supervision allows time for a coach to explore their own coaching perspectives. We offer not coaching supervision as a 1 to 1 offering on Zoom

    Coaching Development

    It is tricky in today’s workplace to maintain a level where we can develop and grow. When we are holding this space for our clients, this can be even more tricky. Imagine then, if you had the opportunity to regularly meetup in a facilitated and supervisory environment with a stable cohort of other coaches. Imagine the conversations, the explorations and the development that you could achieve.

    Success Stories

    What I have taken from the group is the real power of the collective. Simon provides a perfect environment for this and is extremely generous in what he shares. In role modelling generosity he has led the group in ‘its’ generosity. We are able to challenge and support to grow as individuals and as a group

    Executive Coach

    As an experienced Exec Coach, I was keen to refresh my skills in terms of techniques. I was also seeking the opportunity to be involved in collaborative supervision.

    I am achieving so much more. We have quickly developed a fabulous support network where we gladly share and learn from each other. Spending quality time with people who share the same belief and passion for coaching and its benefits has been food for my soul. I am also learning great techniques for group coaching thanks to Simon’s magnificent skills.

    Executive Coach

    “I have known Simon for well over 10 years now and throughout that time I’ve benefited a huge amount from his tremendous knowledge and experience in the coaching space. I admire his passion as a coach and his generosity to share and engage other coaches in their growth and development. Most recently I’ve invested in Simon’s supervision group and enjoyed great value from each meeting. Some of the skills I respect the most in Simon’s supervision, are his ability to empathise and encourage, be silent and allow each person space, yet challenge and enable deep insight and learning. I would highly recommend anybody to work with Simon either as a coach or supervisor.
