This rigorous, 1-year programme is for experienced professionals who wish to have a globally recognised qualification in Supervision.

Since 2005, CSA has trained over 700 Executive and Business coaches from a rich and diverse range of different backgrounds, cultures and experiences; our accredited graduate supervisors work worldwide in a wide variety of different contexts.

Our approach is to develop the human being as well as the professional practitioner, it is our belief that “who you are, is how you supervise”®. This statement is grounded in a deep appreciation of our shared humanity, an honouring and respecting of uniqueness and our care for the earth.

What makes CSA Different?
The distinguishing feature of the CSA Diploma programme is that in addition to a thorough training in classic  supervision models, students will learn about 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. We also include teaching on Coaching Psychology and 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.

CSA is proud to have Approved Provider status with the ICF. Our Diploma now carries 108.5 CCEUs. These are made up of 77.5 Core Competencies and 31 Resource Development.


The CSA Diploma Course was one of the first to be accredited and has continuously maintained this accreditation with EMCC.

“One of the most robust learning opportunities I have experienced in my decades-long professional career.

The program is skillfully designed to include a rich mix of dynamic instruction, insightful readings, experiential learning opportunities, individual supervision and reflective writing. The faculty are leaders in their field who are passionate about the subject matter and skilled at teaching and mentoring.

CSA also created a vibrant learning community where participants felt safe to share their learning journeys and generously provided each other with peer support.

The course exceeded my expectations and enabled a breakthrough in my capacity to be fully present, creative and generative with coaching and supervision clients.

Having qualified as a CTI coach it has been liberating to work with many new models & perspectives that have enabled me to deepen & broaden my supervision practice, all in service of my clients.
