Supervision for Coaches - executive and life coaches
I approach supervision throughe a process of reflective enquiry. I have been told by clients that I help them bring clarity to their coaching dilemmas, support their personal development and offer valuable teaching to support their practice. Supervision is a shared process, whereby we look at client work together in a spirit of peer reflection. As a supervisor, I also have a responsibility for the maintenance of professional standards and protection of the client and coach. I am pleased to say I have never had to act on any transgressions of such standards. Many of the coaching dilemmas brought to a supervision exploration are the result of the impact of trauma from early years of life and my experience of working within the trauma field, particularly the theory and practice of Professor Franz Ruppert, is a key element of what I offer. The reflective focus is on the coach, the client, the relationship and the context in which the coaching is taking place. I work with clients regularly over a period of time, maybe years, and I also work with clients for one-off sessions or in respect of particular clients. All work is confidential as you would expect. I work via skype, telephone or face to face sessions in Devon and occasionally in London.
"I relish my supervision sessions with Julia. Our time together feels like one part therapy, one part coach masterclass as it attends to both my personal growth and my professional development as an executive coach. Julia is wise, knowledgeable and knowing, super experienced and quietly authoritative - and she manages to hold all of this extremely lightly as she helps me navigate the opportunities and challenges I face in my own practice. I can't recommend her highly enough." Experienced Executive Coach
'Working with Jules is always enjoyable as well as instructive. Her wisdom is invaluable and I am certain that without her support my practice would be significantly impoverished. She always starts where I am and over time has helped me to develop my thinking and my technical skills. She has a depth of insight which I have been unable to find anywhere else and she manages to share this by some magical osmosis which has allowed me to develop my understanding without ever noticing that I was being taught. I (and my clients) owe her a great deal.' JS, Executive Coach
"Supervision with Julia has been a thoroughly positive experience - overcoming my fears about my ability to coach well and getting beyond any personal insecurities including all my behavioural and personal biases! I have been offered a challenging but safe place to learn. Julia's skills and belief in my has made it worth the effort. She is highly skilled and intuitive,challenging and supportive and very disciplined about expecting real change and action." Experienced Executive Coach and Leadership Consultant
Supervision for therapists and counsellors who wish to deepen their understanding of trauma
Using the same reflective enquiry approach, I also offer supervision for therapists and counsellors for their whole case-load or in respect of particular clients. This is via Skype, telephone or face to face in Exeter. We may use the Identity orientation Psycho-Trauma constellations process as part of a face to face session to help deepen the understanding of the practitioners part in particular client work.
"Supervision is a very important part of my ability to work safely, professionally and within the knowledge base that I have acquired. I heard Jules speak at a lecture and then a couple of years later at a conference and on both occasions was no only inspired by her knowledge base but also her ability to connect with people. Her knowledge on working with trauma was inspiring. I already had very good supervision in place but was also seeking supervision by someone who was an expert on working with trauma (a very different client group and way of working then to general therapy clients). I have now been seeing Jules for about 2 years for specific clients I see. She has proved invaluable. She helps me unpick the complexity of trauma, helps me keep my work safe and boundaried and always empowers the skills I already have. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jules to anyone, however experienced you are". SJR, qualified psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor (UKCP), practising for nearly 30 years.
Individual therapeutic exploration
I offer a reflective enquiry process for individual exploration of behaviour, feelings, physical symptoms, problems with eating, relational problems and work related problems. The 2 hours sessions may be fortnightly, monthly or less frequently. As part of the reflective enquiry, we would work with the psycho-trauma theory and constellations process developed by Professor Franz Ruppert. Sessions can be face to face in Exeter; or via skype.
