Mentor Coaching & Supervision
Mentor Coaching for ICF credentialing supports coach competency against the researched set of ICF Core Competencies. You may be seeking an ICF credential or looking to renew your credential. I work with clients who want to anchor the core competencies into their coaching practice, who seek to go beyond the doing work of a coach, to being a coach.
In supervision, we put your relationship with your coaching client at the heart of the work. Who you are, and how you show up with your clients creates a helpful wide-angled lens. I work with coaches who are curious about the relationships they form with clients and the systems of which they become a part. See more of what is going on and create more possibilities for how you can support your clients.

ICF Mentor Coach requirements
The ICF requires coaches seeking ACC credential or re-credential requires 10 hours of Mentor Coach time with a coach who is qualified to at least ACC standard, and who has renewed their credential at least once. For coaches seeking a PCC credential, the Mentor Coach must hold a PCC credential.
It must be taken over a minimum period of 3 months.
Felicity is a PCC credentialed coach, gaining her first credential in 2013. She is a valued and active member of the ICF community, volunteering her time to lead the UK ICF Chapter, taking on the role of President 2020. She has completed the ICF Core Competency assessor training.

Good news - 10 hours of Mentor Coaching can be counted towards your CCEU requirement for credential or re-credential.
One to One Supervision Programme
Beneficial for coaches who are committed to reflect on and strengthen their coaching practice within a minimum 6-12 month supervisory relationship. This investment is worthwhile for coaches who want to give themselves and their practice a high degree of focus and support.
The 6hr (6x1hr) programme flow is defined by the needs of the coach. It includes the following qualities [Inskipp and Proctor (2001)]
Restorative - the being of the coach; energy; resourcing oneself; practice of coaching within your life and mix of work
Formative - competency, skills, approaches, perspectives and skill in application
Normative - safe and ethical standards; working within competency; boundaries and quality
The frequency of sessions is determined by the coach, and within the context of the frequency of their coaching practice.
All sessions are held individually online using ZOOM.
The Small Supervision Community 2024
Feeling a need to be part of something? Looking for a space to continue to develop? Seeking support, safety and stretch?
The Small Supervision Community gives 8 coaches the space to join together for a year of growing, restoring and sharing together in 2024.
Here's the equation I'm aiming for:
Commitment x Flexibility x Connection = Sufficient Safety + Variety
Commitment: We'll each commit to the year and to each other to be an active participant and to contribute to growing, restoring and sharing together.
Flexibility: There will be a choice of #CoachSupervision sessions to join. We'll agree a minimum group size, eg 3 and a maximum of 6. During the year, each coach can participate in 5 group sessions and 1 individual session.
Connection: We'll give time to building our relationships, within the sessions and outside of the time together. Who we are together will support the depth of work we do together.
Sufficient Safety: We each have different needs to feel sufficiently safe to step into our less than comfortable learning zones. The small group contract will be formed to include what you need.
Variety: Will come through the similar but different group combinations and sizes which will naturally emerge. Plus from who brings what and how we choose to work together each session.
I'm gathering interest for a kick off in Jan 2024 with an aim to get the group confirmed by Friday 1st December 🤞 . If you'd like to hear more or have questions, either message me to to find time for a chat or sign up here https://lnkd.in/eeTMDSTm.
Additional sessions can be added at a discounted rate
Supervision is not an ICF requirement. However, ICF Credential-holders may submit up to 10 hours of Coaching supervision as Core Competency Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units toward their credential renewal.
