What is a GWiz Learning Coaching Circle and why would I find it useful to take part?
Our GWiz Learning Coaching Circles are facilitated by Melody Cheal, and limited to eight participants. The Circle consists of a series of rounds with the following structure:
- A Coach or Practitioner elicits an issue from another participant, who takes the role of “client”.
- The Coach or Practitioner next elicits a Well Formed Outcome.
- In discussion with Melody, the Coach or Practitioner selects an approach or technique.
- The Coach or Practitioner takes the “client” through the process receiving coaching where necessary.
- Melody provides feedback, encourage and tips after the mini-session.
- The group briefly discuss the process and results
- End of round
As a Coach, NLP Practitioner or Clinical Hypnotherapist, you will be able to sharpen your skills in a safe environment and so enhance your confidence when working with paying clients. As a bonus when you take on the role of client you have the opportunity get some “FREE” Change! You will learn from three perspectives, Coach/Practitioner, Client and Meta (Observer) which in turn will deepen your learning.

What is Coaching Supervision?
Supervision is a key element of good coaching practice providing the Coach, NLP Practitioner or Hypnotherapist with support and development. It also signals a professional approach to your client. Supervision is essentially the process of going “meta” to your coaching and mentoring practice, it helps you to metaphorically take a step back and look at your work from a new perspective.
You will attend this group to:
- Gain essential support and feedback of your work.
- To learn and develop, in a supervision group you will learn from other people’s experiences as well as your own.
- Check that you are managing transference and counter- transference effectively.
- Check your thinking around content, processes, ethics and professional practice.
- Gain mentoring and advice.
- Experience the support, reassurance and encouragement often missing for sole traders working alone.
- Gain CPD credits.

Why attend supervision with Melody Cheal?

More recently, Melody has created a Supervision Diploma Certification that is accredited with both the Association for Coaching and ANLP.
How is the supervision group structured?
The group is three to eight people with a maximum of eight.
At the beginning of each session Melody will facilitate the setting of an agenda. Participants with supervision issues will provide a one line description of the issue. Some participants will have more than one and some participants may not have anything to present but still wish to take part in the group.
The agenda will guide the session. Each supervision “slot” is twenty minutes, the slot is timed and followed by a process review. During the supervision slot the rest of the group observe and make notes. After the completion of the supervision the group are invited to discuss the process and personal insights. The content of the supervision is not up for discussion as this belongs to the Coach/Practitioner. Contracting is used through out.
Melody uses a supervision model based on a combination of NLP and TA.
How do I book a Supervision Group session?
Sessions are booked and paid for in advance by applying directly to Melody
I am trying out a new format for the Supervision Groups and Coaching Circles. I am now offering a group that will be a combination and group led.
We will start each session with Supervision case studies.
This will be followed by the Coaching Circle with the following possibilities:
Teaching Demonstration – participants will be invited to comment and make suggestions about the techniques used.
Workshop Coaching rounds – a participant will lead the coaching round with other participants as additional resources.
Traditional Coaching round with feedback from me.
Coaching pairs practicing a specific exercise (often following a demonstration).
The Coaching Circle aspect of the group will be decided on the day based on the groups needs.
