Supervision special interest group


Supervision in coaching and mentoring is an exciting and emerging discipline that can contribute greatly to practitioners, individual clients, their organisations and our wider communities – yet many coaches and mentors go without regular supervision. We are interested in knowledge and in practice, in opportunities and in barriers, in relationships and in systems. Let’s explore together!

Who is the group for?

We welcome a broad community of practitioners, including:

  • The supervision-curious
  • Coaches and mentors wanting to get the most from being supervised
  • Supervisors in training
  • Established supervisors

Why join the group?

We aim to support effective, ethical and engaging supervision that adds value to people, organisations and the coaching and mentoring professions.

Information and meetings

The group meets online every quarter, for informal peer networking or coaching, guest speakers, and panel discussions.
