    Lynne Cooper

    Working with Metaphors in Supervision: a Clean Language Approach

    Metaphors are fundamental to language, offering a shorthand way of describing something in terms of another thing or experience.  Clean Language originator David Grove explained, ‘Metaphor mediates the interface between conscious and unconscious processes’, which affords us the ability for powerful exploration in supervision.

    This highly interactive webinar focusses on how to work Cleanly with supervisees’ metaphors, how to elicit metaphors, and how not to influence others’ metaphors.  You’ll practise tuning your ear for metaphors and symbols, ask Clean Questions, draw out and develop supervisee’s metaphorical descriptions and pay close attention to language.  You’ll experience how this approach, combined with a strong relational presence, offers access to unconscious thinking, quickly and easily.

    Host: Lynne Cooper

    Lynne Cooper has been supervising for 12 years (CSA Accredited) and coaching for over 20. She is an Accredited Master Executive Coach and Honorary Life Fellow of the Association for Coaching.  Since 2002 she has pioneered the practical application of Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling approaches in organisations. Lynne is the co-developer of the Five-Minute Coach, trains Clean approaches to Coaches and Supervisors, and is a tutor on two accredited Coach training programmes.  She is a member of CSA faculty and is Leading the Design and Development team for the UK17 Diploma Programme.

    Introducing Creativity’s Compass Rose: 8 Ways for You to Own your Creativity and to re-Source Your Practice

    “The most regretful people on earth” - wrote Mary Oliver in ‘Of Power and Time’ – “are those who felt the call of creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising and gave it neither power nor time”

    Creativity is our birth right – but this often gets forgotten or overlooked in the life’s busyness and rush. Yet finding our bearings and balance points – as well as our sources of nourishment - is crucial. We are all creative in our own ways – and whether consciously or not we are creating in every moment in every day.

    Yet, the more we strike off in new directions - as well as re-visit the known - we dare ourselves and our clients to imagine (or re-imagine) what is possible and bring this forth as the best most creative version of ourselves and who we are in our work.

    And so in this season of early Autumn, we invite you to open up to the unique gifts and savour the treasures of your own innate and warm-hearted creativity, whilst also exploring new ways of resourcing yourself – and what might you need to let go of to invite into your heart and your life to manifest a richer and more creative work life. As Albert Einstein wrote “problems cannot be solved from the consciousness that created them”. In a fraught world which desperately needs our creativity, what might become possible if we were all able to increase our wholehearted creativity by even 2%, never mind 5 or 10 or 15%? Who we are is how we create. What are you choosing?

    Our session will be a safe, fun, experiential and interactive space where you can find your own unique ways to flourish as we explore together…

    • How can you start – or remember - to answer the call to your inner artistry?

    • Discover 8 core practices which can support you to be more in tune with your own intimate process of discovery to find the extra-ordinary in the ordinary, to play as if no one is watching, and to say ‘yes’ with real gusto to our own complex, beautiful creative self

    • Receive a copy of the Creativity’s Compass Design with supporting questions in a Workbook

    We will invite you to journey with us through the 8 cardinal points of our new Compass Rose to find your own creative flourishing whatever direction you take. We will also share what we have learned about creating to flourish from our students on our yearlong Tapestry Diploma journey as they explored their own creative voice and dived into a deeper appreciation of the ebbs and flows of the creative process.

    Please bring paper and coloured pens and pencils.

    autumn reflection

    Pause with us to reflect and harvest inspired by Autumn's purpose and qualities.

    Come and join CSA Faculty members Liz Nottingham and Doug Montgomery for their Autumn Seasonal Reflection workshop.

    About this Event

    This workshop is spacious pause to reflect creatively on the metaphorical gifts of autumn as we pickle and preserve our own harvest and prepare for the winter ahead. Autumn is a time of harvest as well as a time to clear, prune and slow down as we make room in our lives for new growth. It is a time to prepare our winter store cupboard to support, delight, and sustain us as we move forward into the new year.

    Each season has its own special purpose and energy. Every season also connects with our human rhythm of life. And every season is unique to it's particular year. Each season in turn prepares us for the next season and takes it's lead from the previous season. It's important that we slow down in the busy-ness to reflect on what this season is bringing us, challenges and gifts and to make the most of it's harvest.

    Please join us with a pen, paper, some crayons and a cup of something lovely and warming!

    If you missed our previous reflection sessions, here is what some participants said:

    Thank you, Doug and Liz, for a wonderfully reflective and rich session, beautiful, heartily recommend to anyone who can make the next one!

    It was beautiful - an autumnal golden hour. Thank you. Such a lovely start to the day. · I loved it! What a beautiful space you guys created, many many thanks.

    It was great. Just what I needed.

    Thanks for such a wonderful session. It was good to make time to reflect on the last year and to think about the things that will nourish and sustain me through winter and beyond. You complement each other well and created a warm cosy atmosphere - we could have been gathered round a winter's fire.

    A Virtual 12 month Inquiry to re-Source You and re-Vitalise your Professional Life

    A new EMCC Global Quality Award Level 5 Bespoke Accredited Practitioner Diploma Programme from PattersonPrenticeDesigns

    Join us to explore your creativity to craft soulful change in a confusing world!

    Your head, your heart and your soul will thank you!

    Elaine and Karyn from PattersonPrenticeDesigns invite you to join them on their beautifully curated flagship Diploma journey with blends latest thinking with our love of the arts, music, poetry, film, design and nature in a supportive community of like-minded professionals!

    We invite you to hear your soul calling to you to gift yourself a precious and spacious year where you can explore the warp and weft of your own unique creativity, as you immerse yourself in the juices and the droughts of the creative cycle and experience first-hand the seasonal joys and frustrations of bringing your own creative project of your own choosing to life.

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which came to me as a seed goes to the next as a blossom and that which came to me as a blossom, goes on as fruit.”

    Dawna Markova, Ph.D WRITER, SPEAKER

    Exploring identity, creativity and spontaneity through MASKS

    This CSA Exclusive event is facilitated by Steve Chapman. CSA promotes the principle of ‘self as instrument’ and views it as is vital in coaching supervision, this session is all about attuning the unique instrument irrelevant of what tune it is playing or who is listening. 

    Masks are the ultimate permission giving tools. They allow us to tap into and unlock different parts of ourselves. They can help us to find different ways of moving, different ways of thinking and different ways of speaking. They can kick start our imagination, our creativity and get us back in touch with our natural spontaneity. They allow us to develop characters that are exaggerations or polar opposites of how we experience ourselves on a daily basis. They allow us to explore different parts of our personalities in order to get to know ourselves better and understand some of our foibles, projections and fixed self-images that keep us stuck. Best of all masks are a powerful, exciting and highly entertaining method of personal development.

    Image of Masks

    This workshop is exclusively for CSA and is limited to 10 participants. Book your place Now!

    Steve Chapman has developed a particular method of using masks for personal development, combining ideas from gestalt psychology with exercises from improvised theatre and classic mask techniques. Steve has trained in mask work with the likes of Keith Johnstone (Loose Moose), Steve Jarrand (Trance Masks), Emily Gray (Trestle Theatre) and Russell Dean (Strangeface Theatre). Steve has worked with masks for over 10 years now as a way of helping people liberate and amplify parts of their personality that have previously been suppressed or stifled. (https://www.canscorpionssmoke.com)


    FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS

    “Simply the best workshop ever.”

    “Possibly the most liberating experience you might ever have.”

    “I’ll never forget the bits of me I met for the first time at the mask workshop.”

    “Very weird. In a very, very good way.”

    “I keep a photo of my mask in my wallet to remind me of who I can be.”

    “An incredible day.”

    “A truly magical experience”

    “It is like going home with a bunch of new friends inside yourself!”

    An Inquiry into Freedom, Spontaneity and Not Knowing with Steve Chapman


    “Learning to see the world as strange makes us unhome in the everyday and thereby restores it as a potential place of wonder”. Nietzche


    In this 3 hour online session, offered exclusively through CSA
     Steve will facilitate an immersive and experimental workshop, inviting participants to take a step back from the habitual patterns of every day life and ask ourselves - do any of us really know what we are doing. What happens if we gently let go of having to have a plan, a script, an answer and instead move towards a space of not knowing. And what are the implications of doing this in a coaching/supervision relationship?

    This workshop will involve a series of simple creative experiments designed to increase our capacity to not know and to start to allow more of our spontaneous creative self expression to emerge. As well as immersive experiments the workshop also allows for space to reflect and sense make as a group and will bring in various maps, theories and navigation aids to help us on our journey.

    This workshop is exclusively available through CSA and limited spaces are available. Book your place Now!

    Image - moving to the unknown

    Steve Chapman is an artist, writer, coach, consultant and speaker who is interested in creativity and the human condition. He has spoken around the world on the subject and has worked with over 80 organisations helping them to nurture the free creative expression of the human beings within them. He has held roles as visiting faculty on various MSc programmes at Ashridge, Metanoia and Roffey Park and currently visits on the well-regarded Ashridge Masters in Executive Coaching programme.  www.canscorpionssmoke.com

    Will Medd

    Exploring the space of Creativity and Supervision 

    Creativity is at the heart of the supervisory relationship. In a very playful and creative process, I invite us to explore what is creativity, where creativity come from, who is doing the creating, who is being the creator? And I invite us to experience these questions rather than to answer them!

    How? Well, we’re going to play with clay. Literally. With insights from pottery, meditation, poetry and old teachings on pots, we will actively create while reflecting on creativity, our relationship with getting things right, and the space we create in supervision.

    NB. Participants will be asked to have a small amount of clay to play with (or playdough, plasticine – something malleable) and are advised to have a cloth and water handy! Please also have a bowl in sight.


    Host: Will Medd

    Will is a CSA Faculty Member, Supervisor, Coach and Meditation teacher. He stumbled across pottery 3-4 years ago while living in Cohousing Community that had a pottery studio. Following a challenge from a friend to have a go on a wheel, he fell in love with it - the tactual experience, the uncertainty, the mess, the not quite knowing, and the always imperfect ‘wabi sabi’ nature of working with clay. Pottery unleashed a creativity that had been squashed. And so now he continues to throw experimentally, often badly, while also developing ‘rock pots’ (he’ll explain more in the session). This session is playful while also asking some fundamental questions about who we are when we are creating.

    Embodying resilience: accessing inner resolve at difficult times

    A Leadership Embodiment Level 1 workshop with
    Amanda Ridings

    About the workshop…

    When we’re ‘bent out of shape’ in these unsettled and unsettling times, we can use Leadership Embodiment practices to support us to navigate the world more skilfully. Whether you’re a leader in your organisation, family or community or simply wish to enhance your self-leadership, this workshop offers an approach that will enable you to cultivate a steadier presence in the push and pull of life.

    Developed by Wendy Palmer, Leadership Embodiment is a body of work that draws on principles from martial arts and mindfulness to assist us to develop greater capacity to be present, confident and compassionate when the chips are down. During the workshop, we’ll become more aware of the role of our body and posture as we explore how we lose our composure and clarity in a variety of scenarios. Using a four-part embodied practice, we’ll experience a more resourceful state in which we’re better able to see a bigger picture and act with more agency and impact.

    In experiencing the power of this approach, a leader from the NHS said:

    ‘I truly found a real strength and energy from learning about the connection between mind and body and how to use that energy and focus to cope with everyday situations never mind the stressful ones!’


    What to expect and what to bring…

    We’ll be moving around and will be making gentle physical contact with each other on hands, arms and back. You should wear comfortable clothes and flat, comfortable indoor shoes or bare feet. Mostly…just bring yourself and be ready to explore and have fun!

    Our work will be mainly experiential, with brief opportunities to share learning after each activity. The workshop will take place on Tuesday 24 January and Wednesday 25 January, with each day beginning at 9.30am and ending at 5pm.


    Cost and Location:
    24-25 January 2023, central Edinburgh, £300-£450 per person

    To request a booking form, please email me at amanda@originate.org.uk. If you have any questions, please ask.

    Anne Archer

    Exploring our choices when a coachee expresses thoughts of suicide in a coaching session

    As coaches and coach supervisors we are privileged to be alongside clients at the best of times and sometimes the worst. Anyone who is at a place of considering ending their life because they see no other option to escape their pain needs support. If a client expresses the depth of their feelings and thoughts to us, it may be they have told no-one else. This can be about themselves or someone else. How we react and respond in that moment they share with us, may save a life.

    In this session we will explore:

    • Some myths about suicide and that it isn’t always someone exhibiting signs of declining mental health who are having suicidal thoughts
    • Our own assumptions, values, and attitudes towards suicide generally and then specifically in the coaching context
    • What is needed in that moment of sharing with us?
    • How can we react and respond in a way that reduces stigma and discrimination and supports resource building?
    • How does our ethical code and contracting support us in these moments?

    We will use case studies, breakout room discussions, plenary sharing with input and content. We will explore the topic both from a supervisory and coach perspective.

    A prevous participant said about this session: 

    Good, very odd to say enjoyable or interesting about such a dark subject but overall yes very interesting.


    About Anne:

    I am a coach, coach supervisor, mental health advocate and educator and suicide prevention trainer. I work with Mental Health First Aid England, the National Centre for Suicide Prevention and Training, I volunteer for a crisis line and have first-hand experience of the devastation suicide can bring to family, friends and colleagues.

    In this work specifically my clients include public and private sector, global corporations, professional service firms, a major animal charity and many smaller organisations. I hold an MSc in the Psychology of Wellbeing which included a spell in the community during our Clinical Psychology stint.

    The most important piece of my story is that I am passionate in creating a future for my grandchildren where they can thrive and flourish. For me suicide prevention work is life affirming. It means choosing life and that can sometimes feel like the hardest option.

    Opposites in the space of supervisionWill Medd

    Playing with ‘opposites’ offers a simple, powerful yet overlooked tool for cultivating awareness in coaching supervision.

    As coach supervisors we are familiar with exploring forms of ‘reframing’, for example reframing self-limiting beliefs or self-narratives. The assumption is often that we need to replace something less good with one that is better - whether somatic experience, emotion, thought, belief, narrative. Yet the world of opposites has so much more to offer and is always available. Instead of seeking to replace or reframe, in this experiential webinar, we'll explore what happens when we hold opposites together in the same moment, what happens when we let them go, and how opposites offer an interesting pointer to the place of the observer and wider field of awareness.

    This session will explore experientially how opposites can show up and their role as a tool in supervision for opening up possibility.


    Host: Will Medd

    Will is a CSA Tutor, Supervisor, Coach and Meditation teacher. While intellectually opposites have long been of interest, he stumbled across opposites in their full effect while learning iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation Training - based on non-dual approaches to life - and realised how powerful they are to work with experientially, to free up possibility. He brings to this session a curiosity to see what opposites will reveal for you as we can inquire together.

    Aware of Awareness and its qualities in coaching supervisionWill Medd

    Awareness is one of those words that we often use quite freely along with its close relatives of being present, mindful, openness and so on. Whether we’re dropping down the “U”, sailing the seven eyes, moving through a drama triangle, or sitting in relational presence, cultivating awareness is at the heart of our supervision. Awareness is at the heart of the mantra ‘who we are is how we supervise’. Yet what about our awareness of being aware of who we are? Sounds enough to give you a headache!

    Don’t worry - this webinar will offer an experiential exploration of ‘awareness’ as ever present and available in ways that are neither claiming an impossible transcendental state nor an infinitely regressive thinking loop! We’ll be exploring the wonderful qualities that emerge when we turn attention into being aware of awareness itself. You’ll come away having experienced inquiries into being aware of awareness and ways to explore this for yourself and with your clients.


    Host: Will Medd

    Will is a CSA Faculty Member, Supervisor, Coach and Meditation teacher. He’s increasingly aware (!) of the ways in which simple practices can bring us to the qualities of awareness in which that can transform our supervision practice.

    While meditation teachings often help us cultivate our observing-self or witness, it was training as a Certified iRest Yoga Nidra teacher that Will realised the value of nondual approaches that turn attention experientially to the place of awareness itself. He brings to this session a curiosity to see what we’ll find together in exploring explicitly our awareness of awareness itself!

    Aware of Awareness and its qualities in coaching supervisionWill Medd

    Awareness is one of those words that we often use quite freely along with its close relatives of being present, mindful, openness and so on. Whether we’re dropping down the “U”, sailing the seven eyes, moving through a drama triangle, or sitting in relational presence, cultivating awareness is at the heart of our supervision. Awareness is at the heart of the mantra ‘who we are is how we supervise’. Yet what about our awareness of being aware of who we are? Sounds enough to give you a headache!

    Don’t worry - this webinar will offer an experiential exploration of ‘awareness’ as ever present and available in ways that are neither claiming an impossible transcendental state nor an infinitely regressive thinking loop! We’ll be exploring the wonderful qualities that emerge when we turn attention into being aware of awareness itself. You’ll come away having experienced inquiries into being aware of awareness and ways to explore this for yourself and with your clients.
