One to One & Group Supervision

A confidential place to be guided, developed, supported and restored


“Supervision is where we wipe the sweat from our brows and dirt from our faces, wash our hands, look at ourselves in the mirror and get ready to become an ‘ordinary’ person again, without a ‘role’ or ‘function’. To do so we need to bring our newly acquired experiences, impressions and reflections up to the surface, review them and sometimes give them a clean, and then muster up the courage to process our emotions, undertake honest reflection and integrate our recent experience into our broader consulting practice” (Erik de Haan, 2012). Ultimately, supervision is in service of the business or organisation that the work of consultancy, change, coaching is taking place within.

You may be an internal HR/OD Director or Change agent, an Executive Coach or Organisation Consultant who is spending large amounts of time coaching, consulting and supporting individuals, groups and organisations. You are likely to need a safe, confidential place to go to process your work and receive what you need in service of your client and to sustain your practice. This could be for support (restorative) learning and growth (formative) and monitoring (normative) (Inskipp and Proctor, 2001).

Space2BE has a number of qualified supervisors who provide one-to-one and group supervision and run both in-house and open, external sessions. Our supervisors are also active consultants and executive coaches.

Those who have participated in our supervision sessions say they have gained development, support, an ethical perspective, and an opportunity to reflect. For organisations, the benefits are typically maximisation of return on coaching, systemic organisational insight and confidence in the quality of service being delivered.

December's supervision session, on the theme of "restoration" was superb - exactly what I needed at a time when I'd barely the time or energy to consider what those needs might be. Karen had arranged a rich variety of activities and exercises, giving us the opportunity to engage our minds and our bodies, to be deeply reflective, to be playful, to move and to be still. The activities were beautifully paced so that we never felt under pressure of time.
After a fulfilling yet turbulent and demanding year of supporting others, the luxury of letting go, of focusing purely on what I needed for me, how I needed to be in that moment was, frankly, blissful! I left feeling lighter, with emerging clarity on how I want to be in the year ahead and a renewed commitment to extending the compassionate support to myself that I instinctively offer to my clients. Thank you Karen, for your lightness of touch, your deep empathy and your expert supervision.
