Group Supervision Experience Calls
The Association for Coaching provides a Group Supervision Experience service on the third Thursday of every month. The calls are held via video link or low-cost teleconference line and are facilitated by experienced AC Coaches who donate an hour of their time to support fellow AC Members. The calls last up to one hour with a maximum of five participants. AC Group Supervision Experience calls are designed to offer Members a taste of what supervision is like and what can be gained from participating in it. The calls are available to AC Members regardless of location across the world.

Feedback from ACGSE Participant - Glynis Kozma
“ I've found the group supervision calls very helpful, having participated for a number of years. The other coaches' experiences are hugely varied: some work in organisations, others are personal life coaches like myself, running a our own practices. The benefit of the calls for me is to gain different perspectives, both with challenging clients or on-going issues which I encounter as a self-employed coach. One challenge of being a self-employed coach can be a sense of isolation, so for me the telephone supervision sessions afford an opportunity to exchange ideas with other coaches; including the supervisor there can be up to five participants. I have always found everyone on the calls extremely helpful and kind, offering ideas or coaching tools that other coaches may find useful. If you are unsure about joining these calls I'd wholeheartedly recommend you try them because in my experience I've always come away having learned something to improve my own coaching skills.”
Feedback from ACGSE Participant Dina Zavrski-Makaric

“I am a freelancer that travels the globe coaching people within many different cultures and contexts.
The calls offer me a place to feel part of a professional community, and more connected with other coaches, through sharing experiences, exchanging ideas and normalising areas of practice.
The supervision hosts really know their stuff, they are amazing professionals. I experience them holding the space beautifully, skilfully handling different levels of experience and practice, valuing and including everyone. I am always impressed by the way they manage the time on the call.
It’s a great opportunity to expand my frame of reference, hear different perspectives and see challenges through the eyes of others. “
Participation in these calls counts towards your annual Continuous Professional Development. They are designed as a supervision taster and are not intended to replace full professional supervision. Members should engage in a long-term relationship with an appropriately trained and experienced supervisor; this is an essential requirement for AC Coach Accreditation. Separate Coach Accreditation Support Calls are available for members with questions about the AC Coach Accreditation scheme.
Places on Group Supervision Experience Calls must be booked in advance, please contact email@example.com.
