CSA is excited about the future. We continue to learn and to grow: our global team of trainers, tutors, webinar leaders and supervisors increases each year; new additions bring fresh insight and skill to our endeavours (you can meet them all here). The faculty continues to be mentored by CSA Senior Faculty on a regular basis.

Staying Calm in the Eye of the Storm




'Dr Joe Dispenza writes of the need for profound centering in these times.  Coaches and supervisors will be aware of practices that support presence and how these calm the amygdala and clear our minds. This article - from 2017! -  powerfully underllnes  the value of these practices and how we might consciously stay in the 'eye of the storm’ rather than be pulled into unnecessary distress right now ’

New Book - Nature's Way


Available through Amazon


We are often so busy that it is as if time runs away with us. As a result we may not always take the pause needed to truly steep ourselves in the abundance of what is just outside the door in the green spaces of nature. Even with successful projects do we take time to really harvest and savour with grace and compassion all the goodness? The higher tech we become the more we need nature’s tonic  to help us connect to all of our senses, where  we  can feel more  alive and where we  can fine tune and calibrate our inner landscape with the sanctuary and bond of the natural environment. .


Nature’s Way, by Karyn Prentice will be the reader’s  year-long companion guiding  you season by season through the  language and  lens  of  Mother  Nature's ever-changing  cycle and with the evocative metaphor of  the garden.

'Coaching supervision enables coaches and people professionals to reflect creatively on WHO and HOW they are being in each moment and to become intelligent about the potential impact of ‘self’ in every coaching, chemistry, contracting, business or leadership conversation which they hold.

As coaches and people professionals, we need to be fully present and engaged AND yet spacious and witnessing – giving attention to what is in front of us (coachee, group or commissioning client), to what is between us (the energy and relationship between) and to what is going on inside our own systems as we work (reflecting in action and attending to our own internal supervisor)”

From a recent review -


"This book is hugely informative, visionary and engaging - by far the best I have read on supervision to date. It adds great depth and breadth to the supervision process and demonstrates very clearly how the supervisory relationship at its most effective is a learning partnership between two professionals"


5* - A must read for supervisors and coaches!
