How does what we think impact our reality? What would happen if we altered our thinking to something more helpful? You talk more to yourself than to anyone else in the world. In the face of challenging situations the words you choose for that conversation with yourself will directly impact how quickly you are able to move forward. Neuroscience shows that our brains continue to develop and change even as adults. The brain is actually quite like plastic, and can be reshaped over time, forming new neural pathways. This has led neuroscientists to call this tendency neuroplasticity. So if what you or others around you are currently thinking is unhelpful, the session will give strategies to begin to alter that thinking.

Code: SGC/21/0699 Coaching and mentoring group supervision (afternoon session)

These sessions are for the members of the South Gloucestershire Coaching and Mentoring Service only. We ask that all members attend two sessions of group supervision per year. Please see full details below for more information.

Full details:

What is coaching supervision?

Coaching supervision is the practice of reflecting upon your work as a coach, usually with a trained supervisor in either a 1:1 or group basis. It is often emphasised as ‘SUPER-vision' providing you with an enhanced ability to see your work from multiple perspectives. If not viewed like this coach supervision could be misconstrued as a more managerial practice by someone with more power than yourself 'checking' that you are 'doing it right'. Far from this, the relationship is more of one of equals, where the supervisor and coach (supervisee) sit 'side by side' in a safe, non-judgemental space getting curious about the your work as a coach. Through this process you gain insight into yourself, the client and the work you do together. Regular coaching supervision will enable the coach to explore these areas and in doing so improve their coaching effectiveness and ensure best value for coachees. Coaching supervision is an essential part of a coach’s ongoing learning and development.
