A superb team of international programme leaders, trainers, tutors, webinar leaders and supervisors supports the CSA Diploma programme – wherever it is delivered. This multi-layered support is one of the distinguishing features of the Diploma, ensuring that each student has input from a number of experienced coach supervisors throughout the programme. They are also exposed to many different ways of working as they develop their own supervisor skills.
Quality control is very important to us here at CSA; each member of the faculty, is not only an experienced, accredited CSA graduate in regular supervision, but each one has also shadowed on at least two further programmes, post graduation, before being selected. All members of faculty attend planning meetings and are mentored by the co-founders of CSA.
We provide the very best learning experiences for our students and the quality of the CSA Diploma in Coaching Supervision depends in no small measure on the exceptional quality, experience and support within the CSA faculty.
Miriam OrrissCoaching Supervision Academy Director and Executive Chair Coaching Supervision Academy
Miriam, co-founder of the Coaching Supervision Academy, co-designed CSA’s Diploma in Coaching Supervision. She has a long history of working with supervision in a variety of professional and business contexts including with senior managers and their teams, front line practitioners, psychotherapists and counsellors.
Miriam is CSA Executive Chair and a Senior Tutor on the CSA Coaching Supervision Diploma course, which is now in its eleventh year in the UK. This course is one of the leading training courses globally for coaches who wish to become supervisors; currently courses are running in the UK, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and the US.
Miriam Orriss has trained and worked in Personal Development and Management in the Public and Private sectors for 30 years. The common thread in her work, has been her connection with people and her belief that we are more that the sum of our parts.
In addition to her considerable skill base as a trainer, manager, supervisor and therapist, she has also trained as a Natural Spiritual Healer, Progressive Counsellor, and Executive Coach. Miriam was, for many years, an Associate with Full Potential Group, working as Supervisor and Coach for their senior clients. She also worked Body and Soul Solutions, and as a Business Consultant with Reeves Davis, supporting them in their work with Business Link.
Miriam is a pioneer in applying the principles of quantum physics, neuroscience and bio-field science, to the practice of supervision. Her unique understanding gives added precision and depth to supervision’s focus on living systems. These insights enable Miriam to work powerfully with supervisees and teams across the world. She refers to this aspect of her work as “Energy Management” and has written a number of papers on it. Miriam blends and applies these concepts to the theories and practice of TA. The merging of these ideas is unique in supervision and extends the understanding of who we are in our work and how, as human beings, we interact with each other and how we affect the systems in which we work. Her most recent paper, ‘The Energy in the Triangle’ forms the basis for her second presentation to the Oxford Brookes International Supervision Conferences.
