An Introduction to CSA
This a unique opportunity to hear Edna Murdoch, one of the pioneers of Coaching Supervision, talk about the birth of coaching supervision and of the Coaching Supervision Academy, about what supervision does and about the internationally successful CSA supervision diploma. The FREE video is a short section of a new video series on Personal Education Development which will be on this site shortly.
The CSA Coaching Supervision Diploma
“The CSA supervision programme has added enormous value to my development…a stunning, original programme full of heart and rigour in equal measure…the CSA diploma in supervision is expertly designed….will engage all types of learners…stretched me in many wonderful directions…fabulous reading list…taking away a huge amount….genuine care from all the staff…energy, enthusiasm and authenticity of the faculty is inspiring.” UK Cohort
This rigorous, 1-year programme is for experienced professionals who wish to have a recognised qualification in Supervision. Since 2005, CSA has trained over 400 Executive and Business coaches and our accredited graduate supervisors are working world-wide. Our approach has a dual focus, personal and professional, as it is based upon our assertion that, “who you are, is how you supervise”.
It was rigorous, academic, theoretical, awareness raising and self-reflective.
The Diploma Course was one of the first to be accredited by EMCC and CSA has been awarded Approved Provider status by the ICF with 40 CCEUs (16 Core Competencies and 24 Resource Development) and a further 8 CCEUs in Core Competencies can be gained from the compulsory supervision sessions attached to the course.
Who this course is for:
- Highly skilled, experienced internal and external coaches and mentors who want to use their knowledge & expertise differently and who are looking for their next challenge or career move.
- Senior people in business or consultants, who have coaching and mentoring as part of their function: for example – HR, OD, L&D, Heads of Dept, Change Management, Strategy,
- Coaches, mentors, consultants who are looking for a well established, rigorous, EMCC accredited, ICF approved supervision programme that can provide an excellent forum for learning and development.
- Anyone in the coaching and mentoring field who wants to become a first class supervisor.
Introducing the Full Spectrum Model
What distinguishes this course is that in addition to a thorough training in classic supervision models, students will be trained in CSA’s Full Spectrum Model of Coaching Supervision.
The Full Spectrum Model incorporates Hawkins & Shohet’s 7-eyed model of Supervision together with core teaching and practice on the Use of Self in Supervision, multi-dimensional Presence work which utilizes the seminal ideas of Sharmer/Senge et al (TheoryU), work with subtle energies , Buddhist Psychology, and quantum physics – a living, relational perspective. There is also teaching on Coaching Psychology and on Systems Thinking.
This broad range ensures that the course is both challenging and holistic. Personal Development for Supervisors is foundational and attention is paid to bringing mature reflective practitioners into the profession.
How is the course delivered?

This is a magical, inspiring and profound journey. To describe it as a course in Coaching Supervision would be to grossly understate it. Never have I experienced a course as being so rich and playful. Thank you!
