Coaching Supervision by an International Coach Federation Master Credentialed Coach (MCC)

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

Jenny Bird is an exceptionally skilled, hugely experienced coach supervisor, working over many years with coaches at all stages of their professional development both internal to organisations and external. Her supervision is based on a deep understanding of how we work with each other and wide ranging experience of coaching as a profession and its place in individual and organisational change and development.

Jenny’s 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 experiment with their application
Supervisees describe Jenny as a sensitive, creative, perceptive, reassuring and motivating supervisor with a wealth of relevant experience of the profession and its applications.
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, explore their challenges, enhance their creativity and understand more about their strengths. Jenny is delighted to discuss supervision with coaches and to help you find the best mix for you.

She offers both in person and virtual:
• Individual coaching supervision
• Small group supervision
