What is Professional Reflective Practice?

Professional Reflective Practice provides an opportunity for coaches to work together with other professionals to review their cases and explore issues and challenges from a personal, professional, and systemic perspective.

The process of group reflective practice provides insight, reflection, direction, support, and the sharing of expertise. Group members learn to help one another improve the quality of their coaching, grow their coaching capacity, and support each other in their practice.

This group uses two experienced and trained supervisors to act as a guide and resource to the group. Group Reflective Practice involves a mix of peer-to-peer dialogue and coach supervisor-guided reflection. The group members provide multiple perspectives on the issues under discussion while the supervisors facilitate the process, adding direct observation and expert instruction when needed.

Participating in professional reflective practice helps coaches to:

  1. Develop personally and professionally by reflecting on their work, developing greater understanding and capacity
  2. Support themselves and others to manage the effect of the client’s and coach’s emotions and stress
  3. Ensure their coaching practice is professional and ethical
