About Michelle

I am an accredited Coaching Supervisor with Association for Coaching, and have accrued over 1000 hours of client-facing supervision work. I believe Coaching Supervision works best when it is a partnership. My philosophy means my focus is on exploring your professional world and helping you understand what is happening in you, and around you, that leads you to work in the way you do.

I have recently discovered the pleasure of sharing my reflections through writing, In 2016, I wrote with David Clutterbuck and Carol Whitaker "Coaching Supervision : A practical guide for supervisees"; then in 2018 I collaborated with Tammy Turner and Carol Whitaker to write "Peer Supervision in Coaching & Mentoring: A versatile guide for reflective practice"; with a growing confidence, in 2020 I then solo edited "101 Coaching Supervision Techniques, Approaches, Enquiries and Experiments" and my next book "Creating the Reflective Habit" is due for publication Spring 2023. All titles are published by Routledge.

In enjoy "pushing the envelope" of what we know about reflective practice and have presented for 10 consecutive years at the Oxford Brookes International Supervision Conference. My current research is looking at the differences between a Coach Mindset and a Coach Supervision Mindset. Currently I have written 15 peer reviewed articles for professional journals and magazines.


Supervision Rate 121 supervision rates are individually negotiated. My rack rate is £300 per hour and negotiable, so that we establish a sense of "fair exchange" I am willing to discount for coaches building their business. For experience Executive Master coaches, I ask for a rate that is in keeping with their earning power and the complexity of the supervision work.
Group Supervision Rate Advanced Group Supervision for Supervisors: Fixed Group Membership (waitlist open) 5 sessions per year of 2 hours duration 1 x 121 of 60 minutes at start of supervision year. Maximum group size of 5 supervisors £1,500 per year
Telephone Supervision Rate FOR COACHES: Flexible Group (runs 2nd Friday of month 11:30 - 12:00pm) = £200 for one-off; £720 for package of 4. Note: you are welcome to "try before you buy" I also run fixed groups and advanced groups for coaches - however membership is via invitation following participation in at least one flexible group session
Other Rate Groups for Supervisors: Flexible Cohort (closed to new members until November 2023) £720 per year for 3 x 2 hour supervision sessions or 2 x 2 hour supervision sessions and 1 x 2 hour CPD session. Additional sessions can be purchased at pro-rated fee.

"What I love about the group supervision calls is how much you learn about yourself and can apply to your own client cases by listening to other’s cases, as well as sharing your own! Michelle facilitates the discussions brilliantly allowing you plenty of time to process what’s being said and extract the most value from it"

"This was a hugely worthwhile supervision session. The small number of participants (four) made for an intimate and ‘safe’ space for people to share and discuss issues. The learning gained was as much from insights on other coach’s issues as the feedback I received on mine."

"The approach used by Michelle provides just the right amount of structure to allow everyone to participate and contribute equally, while at the same time feeling informal, relaxed and supportive. Michelle harnesses the knowledge of the coaches on the call to draw out different perspectives, and weaves her own observations skillfully into the mix. I’d recommend these sessions to any coach"

"As a supervisor, Michelle is insightful and respectful. With respectfulness, she helps me explore the client case studies I bring to supervision in a way that feels right to me offering a choice of methods and models. With insightfulness, she always offers another way of looking at my client and the dynamics between us / the wider system, helping me notice what I may not have noticed for myself, in a collaborative and supportive way so I never feel undermined or embarrassed for not seeing this before, but inspired and positively refreshed from the experience. I ALWAYS go away with new ideas and actions that make a difference to my practice."

"For the case I brought I felt as if I’d had chance to spring clean rather than do a quick tidy and polish."

"Michelle facilitated the session really well – letting people contribute and not rushing in. The session found its own path and I came away with new ideas and insight."
