what is supervision?

Supervision is a place to pause, connect, nourish yourself and grow.

Our work together will support you in three ways:

As a coach

Expand your thinking, learn, experiment and see things from new perspectives. 

As a person

Restore what you need after being immersed in your clients’ challenges.

As a professional

Keep the standards of your work high. Get support on ethical issues or dilemmas.

leadership & career coaching

In my coaching work I support forward-thinking leaders.

In my private practice I help clients craft modern, thriving careers on their own terms. I used to lead high performing teams.  

 

All this will help us have a great conversation about leadership, organisational dynamics, or the future of work.

self-doubt and imposter thoughts

Many of my supervision clients have had careers as lawyers, consultants, HR leaders. Leaving that old expert identity behind for something new, nascent and uncertain can be challenging. It can impact how you show up with your clients.

 

I can help you through this transition.

coaches in

years 1-5 of their practice

When we train as coaches, we learn new tools and models. Yet the most important tool, the most powerful instrument at our disposal in service of the work is ourselves.

I am passionate about helping you integrate your coach training, experience, skills and abilities into a way of working that brings the best in you.

meet your supervisor

Hi, I'm  Marta

 

 

I believe that running a coaching practice doesn't need to be  a solitary endeavour and that every coach should feel supported in their work. As a qualified supervisor, a coach trainer and a business mentor I can support you in a truly holistic way.

 

My mission is to create a safe space for you to reflect, grow, and become the best coach you can be. 

 

I am passionate about choosing a path towards coaching mastery. Here's why: it's relatively easy to become a coach these days but not all coaching work out there is excellent. 

You are reading this page though which makes me think that you're committed to your growth as a coach and to serving your clients with impact. I'd be delighted to be your partner on this journey. 

 

My supervision clients describe working with me as a warm and accepting partnership, a non-judgemental, positive, intelligent, enjoyable and safe space.  A connection that is helpful, positive, consistent, encouraging, yet humble and of integrity.

 

I'm part of the faculty at Animas Centre of Coaching, as well as at the International Centre for Coaching Supervision.

Do impactful work.
Be remembered and recommended.

supervision work I do best

I have loved our sessions.  Marta is a positive, supportive and highly attuned supervisor who uses all her skills to help bring out the best in my coaching in a gentle and constructive way. 

Her deep understanding of Transactional Analysis has added a really valuable dimension. I have come away from our sessions inspired to read more.

 

I feel that I could discuss any issue with her without feeling judged. I would recommend her supervision to any coach.

Supervision interrupts practice.

 

It wakes us up to what we are doing. 

 

When we are alive to what we are doing, we wake up to what it is, instead of falling asleep in the comfort stories of our clinical routines and daily practice…

Sheila Ryan, quoted in Michael Carroll's "Effective Supervision for the Helping Professions"

WHY have supervision?

Develop Your Coaching Style

 

When you train to be a coach you may lose sight of who you are and what you already know. Supervision is a place to develop your own style.

 

Similar to a chemist mixing ingredients to create a compound with its unique properties, supervision is your experimentation lab where you integrate your life experience with you coaching skills to an approach that you can confidently call your own.

Group and individual supervision can be similarly effective and rewarding. It's up to you to choose which is best for you. Contact me if you’d like to have a conversation about which one to choose.

1-to-1 supervision 

This option is great if you would like a confidential space to explore your client work where the focus is just on you.

Group supervision

 

This option is best if you would like to be part of a supportive group of coaches who grow and learn together.

Would supervision hours count towards ACC ICF mentoring hours?


No, I'm afraid supervision hours don't count towards an ICF credential. The ICF mentor-coaching is quite different from supervision as it involves listening to one of your coaching sessions and specifically focussing on the ICF competencies. The focus of supervision is on you, your practice, any challeges you experience in it as well as your growth as a coach.




Will you provide business mentoring as well?


Business mentoring is a different type of support. It's about working on your business, which can include building your brand, marketing yourself, getting clients. While I do offer these kind of services sometimes, business is not the main focus of supervision. Supervision is about you becoming a better coach. It's about creating a safe space to discuss your work with clients. It's about honing in on your coaching style, experimenting with new methods and growing as a practitioner. Of course, these two things are connected: by doing impactful work you are more likely to be remembered, recommended and referred which is a great foundation of having a successful business.
