“The Workshop helped me identify that the approach I had been taking was flawed and that there were other ways of achieving a much more successful outcome which was better aligned to my values and strengths.”


This 1-day event is equally suitable for both independent and in-house coaches, mentors and supervisors at any experience level.


You will have the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on key challenges or opportunities in developing coaching, mentoring and supervision practice
  • Consider the systemic context of challenges and opportunities
  • Identify resources and solutions
  • Experience embodied coaching activities based on systemic coaching, constellations and presencing practices
  • Learn a process for self-coaching and self-supervision.


In the morning, you will be visualising your topic in 3D, using innovative mapping techniques to create table-top "constellation maps".  These help to achieve clarity on the current situation and underlying issues - leading to the identification of solutions and resources needed.


In the afternoon, there will be a mix of individual and group work activities using embodied and systemic learning approaches.


Example topics you could choose to work on in the workshop include:


  • Identify and overcoming barriers to developing your practice 
  • Balance your overall portfolio of work (e.g. employed and self-employed work, other types of services you offer)
  • Identify your niche and client base
  • Market your offering
  • Explain your coaching approach to clients
  • Determine your fee structure
  • Decide who to partner with.


By the end of workshop, you will have learned how to use table-top constellations and other activities for self-coaching and self-supervision.  The aim is not to train you in the coaching approaches used for use with clients, nor sales techniques, but you will go away with some ideas you can adopt.
