Supervision sessions fundamentals

The following guidelines will guide our work together:


As your supervisor, I recognize that you may have future plans, business affairs, customer lists, financial information, job information, personal information and other information that you consider is confidential. I will not, either directly or indirectly use any such information or disclose it to anyone else without direct permission from you the client, except under the following circumstances:

  • There is a life-threatening situation
  • I become aware of the abuse of a minor
  • Terrorism
  • If required to by law
  • When working with my supervisor at which time I will use a different name and any corporate information would remain anonymous. On occasion I may need to tape record a supervision session for my own accreditation, in which case I will agree this with you in advance.
  • When training other coaches, I sometimes use examples of my client work to illustrate points. These references will be anonymous with significant details changed but if you would rather, I didn’t use examples from our work, please let me know.

Roles and Responsibilities

As your coaching supervisor I will take responsibility for:

  • Creating a safe place
  • Giving and receiving feedback
  • Checking in on our relationship
  • Monitoring ethical issues
  • Time keeping

As supervisee I ask you to take responsibility for:

  • Preparing for our sessions
  • Presenting your work and relevant issues
  • Your learning (objectives); applying the learning
  • Feedback to yourself and me
  • Keeping notes of sessions


If I ever say or do something that upsets you or makes you feel uncomfortable or you would like to change our way of working, please bring it to my attention. In order for our work to be effective, you must be honest with me, do not be afraid of upsetting me. I would prefer that we clear it up straight away so that our relationship can be a safe place where you feel fully supported and can be yourself, without fear of judgement and you get the best possible result from our work together. There is always a learning opportunity in every exchange of feedback.

Professional indemnity

You must have insurance that covers you as a coach/mentor – please let me know if this is not the case, and we will explore this together.
