Coaching supervision is an emerging profession in need of developing its knowledge base. However, there is a lack of understanding of the supervision process from the coaching supervisees’ perspective - a crucial element without which issues and debates about coaching supervision are incomplete. Furthermore, although most of the professional bodies that represent coaches in the UK require coaches to have supervision, they do not provide clear guidelines on how supervisees can use supervision effectively. This article describes research that aims to fill this gap, providing empirical evidence on how supervisees can help and hinder their supervision.
