Coaching Supervision and Mentoring

Coach supervision is vital to the development of the coaching profession. It is also often required by organisations booking coaches to work with their people.

Jenny Bird is an exceptionally skilled, highly qualified, hugely experienced coach supervisor and mentor. Her supervision is based on a great zest for life and a profound belief in the potential of each individual.

Coaching supervision provides a safe space for coaches to:

• give attention to their own needs; be nurtured and supported as professionals
• reflect on their work, identifying patterns and development areas
• gain new awareness, insights and ideas and plan their application

Jenny is:
• A skilled and sensitive coach supervisor
• An experienced and motivating coaching mentor
She delights in working with coaches who intend to be their very best, who embrace personal and professional development and who uphold the most rigorous professional standards in coaching.

Coaches work with her to develop their professional skills, enhance their creativity and understand more about their strengths. Jenny is delighted to discuss supervision and coach mentoring with coaches and to help you find the best mix for you.

She offers:
• Individual coaching supervision
• Small group supervision
• Mentoring towards ICF certification (ACC, PCC, MCC)
