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 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!

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