“Supervision is a confidential working relationship in which the personal resources of the coaching supervisor and coach supervisee are directed, in regular sessions, towards maximising the competence of the coach in helping clients.
The aim of coaching supervision is to provide an attentive and supportive climate within which the individual can develop new options for managing themselves and their work with greater satisfaction and effectiveness.” (Adapted: Inskipp and Proctor, 1989)
The supervision I offer is based upon my respect for an individual’s own training and philosophy. My work brings me into contact with individuals and groups who are interested in taking responsibility for their learning and professional practice and who are seeking a regular, preserved time to reflect on their work.
I welcome the opportunity of a preliminary discussion regarding individual needs for which no charge is made. Any subsequent meeting for the purpose of a more detailed briefing may be fee payable.
The Supervision Process
Individual coaches normally contract to meet for between one to one and a half hours duration. Group Supervision is usually between two to three hours in duration. The frequency of supervision varies according to the type and volume of work, experience of the coach, the work setting and any current professional requirements. I am also able to offer Telephone, Skype and Skype Video supervision for those who wish to work with me but where geographical location may prove prohibitive (click here for details of this service).
As part of good practice I encourage collaborative reviews of the effectiveness of supervision. These reviews enable changes to be made to the supervision process where appropriate. In addition, methods of self assessment and self evaluation of the coaching work are also considered.
I very much look forward to my supervision sessions with Gladeana, who supports me across the range of my roles as Coaching Psychologist, consultant, and trainer. Gladeana affirms, challenges and develops my professional practice, facilitating my reflection and sharing her expertise in a very human and plain-speaking manner.
All of this takes place in a natural, conversational style, providing the rigour of professional supervision with the feel of coffee and cake. High quality supervision. Definitely value for money. I would recommend her to other psychologists and coaches seeking supervisory support.

I have just completed my first block of supervision sessions with Gladeana, and have decided to continue into 2013 because I have benefitted. I feel refreshed after each supervision conversation and have been able to follow through with specific actions related to my cases that I brought into supervision. When I first approached Gladeana for coaching supervision support, I was expecting her to be in the role of a ‘consultant’ and was ready and open for her direct views, perspectives, sharing of her experiences in similar challenging situations and even outright advice.
Well, I got them all plus more – she coached me! With input from a supervisor who could seamlessly switch between the consultant, mentor and coach roles, and that provided valuable insights, it is not surprising that I was even able to make specific decisions during rather than after the sessions. And I certainly appreciate her flexibility with the session duration to fit my circumstances. I look forward to more supervision conversations with Gladeana.

I require A FULL 24 HOURS NOTICE regarding cancelled sessions otherwise the coach or sponsoring organization is liable for the full cost of the session. Individuals pay by cheque, cash or BACs payment at the end of each session whilst organizations are invoiced on a monthly basis.
As each supervision requirement depends on the individual coach, the fee structure is available on request.
The terms and conditions outlined are liable to annual review. I also receive supervision support for my supervision work.
