Welcome to the Association of Coaching Supervisors

AOCS was formed by people who care passionately about coaching supervision. We believe there is a need for an association purely focusing on supervision to support the demand for, and current growth in, supervision. Find a qualified, pre-checked coaching supervisor quickly here; they are in regular supervision themselves to sustain the ongoing quality of the service they provide.

We provide a platform to enable coaches and buyers of coaching to understand supervision better and to connect quickly and easily. Our core themes are to Promote, Engage, and Develop our members and with the wider community!

The leading associations acknowledge that coaching supervision is a distinct and critical component that supports and enables coaches to be at their best. They have added value by advocating ongoing supervision for their coach members, creating codes of ethics, and launching accreditation principles and processes for supervisors. The ICF Board have adopted the position of "strongly encouraging" supervision. We applaud and support these developments too.

We want to give supervision wider exposure and a larger 'share of voice' in the coaching community. Do come and join us!
