Supervision special interest group


Welcome to the Supervision special interest group. We aim to support effective, ethical and engaging supervision that adds value to people, organisations and the coaching/mentoring professions.

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 are we 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

What do we do?

We seek to explore, discuss and develop our understanding of supervision through:

Promoting best practice in coaching and mentoring supervision
Sharing new thinking and approaches to supervising and to being supervised
Creating a space for exploration and discovery
Encouraging discussion and identifying areas for research
Building a peer-resourced network of practitioners with a passion for supervision

How do we do it?

We host at least four events a year on Zoom. Events may feature a guest speaker such as a published author, an emerging supervisor sharing research from their qualifying studies, or supervisors from other disciplines such as social work or therapy.

At other times we may crowdsource discussion topics from the community, reflect together on a supervision book, or invite sharing of lessons and questions from practice. We include opportunities for connection and networking at each event.

Supervision Special Interest Group events are free to EMCC members. A small fee will apply for non-members, and all are welcome to attend.
