Supervision resources

Welcome to our resource pages focused on supervision. These pages have been organised to enable EMCC UK members find useful information on all things supervision – such as on the different ways to use supervision, how to find a supervisor, and the EMCC requirements for how often you should access supervision. Also included are details of our upcoming SIG, the podcast series on internal coaching supervision, and some great new discounts on supervision-related books.
