On this page you can learn more about our Full Spectrum Model of Coaching Supervision – what it is, how it works, and how it can benefit you as a coach.
What is the Full Spectrum Model?
The Full Spectrum Model (FSM) of Coaching Supervision offers the coaching profession a powerful range of professional development tools and insights that span 20th and 21st century knowledge. It combines traditional and contemporary methods and models. Uniquely, FSM has at its core, Coaching Presence and the awareness of the total Field in which coaching operates.
It is an integral model utilizing knowledge gained through attending to classic models of supervision as well as to the body, mind and spirit. This perspective brings lively, energetic and radical understanding to all the relationships that lie at the centre of coaching and establishing coaching contracts.

I have been concerned about the quality of coaching for sometime; CSA develops supervisory skills and orientation to the humanity of coaches and clients – a gift to the field and each future supervisee.
As a result, our multi-layered framework moves the whole field of supervision firmly into the 21st century, aligning it with best coaching theory and practice. It powerfully ensures the development of first class, supervisory support for Executive and Personal Coaches – a new kind of CPD for coaches.
What are the benefits?
Full Spectrum Coaching Supervision benefits coaches by opening new fields of awareness and knowledge, attending to the coach, the client and the system that they are in. This ensures that supervision for coaches goes way beyond linear thinking and mere problem-solving approaches to supervision practice.
The approaches at the heart of The FSM are dynamic, systemic and contemplative – these approaches see all learning as a lifelong journey.
The Full Spectrum Model is delivered by accredited coach supervisors. It is a robust, multilayered model, which includes left and right brain modalities. If works effectively with the full range of coaching supervision tasks – from case study focus to professional development and from deepening skills to enabling good coaches become great coaches.
