I offer supervision to coaches (or any helping profession including DSL's) enabling a protected safe space to reflect on professional practice, whilst supporting the personal wellbeing of the supervisee.
As a Psychologist (BPS Chartered Health and Coaching Psychologist), I have trained and specialised in a number of areas around stress management, the mind-body connection and the neuroscience behind meditation giving the supervisee a diverse range of skills and tools to enhance their own coaching practice.
An a BPS Chartered Coaching Psychologist I can also support individuals wishing to seek BPS Coaching Psychology Chartership. This includes offering supervision and guidance on achieving the skills to achieve this status.

In addition to my experience I have completed the SDS Essentials Clinical Supervision course which allows me to be on the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors.
The most frequent approach I use for supervision is Proctor’s 3 Function Interactive Model.
This is broken into three areas:
§FORMATIVE FUNCTION (Learning) – supervision is
concerned with developing the skills, abilities and
understandings of the supervisee.
§ RESTORATIVE FUNCTION (Support) –
supervision explores and reviews how the supervisee responds
emotionally to the stresses of the work.
§ NORMATIVE (Accountability) – supervision
concerned with maintaining and ensuring the safety and
effectiveness of the supervisee’s practice work.
