In this new episode of Coaching Uncaged, Animas Centre Director Robert Stephenson is joined by MCC coach, public speaker, author and PR consultant Cheryl Procter-Rogers as they delve into the growth and development of the coaching profession, and explore the impact that coaching can have in so many different areas. 

Cheryl shares how she first came to coaching, touching on the realisation that she was actually coaching before she even knew what coaching was - something that is no doubt familiar for many coaches listening to this episode - before mapping her journey from a career in PR, to training as a coach and recently achieving her MCC credentials - one of only 1235 worldwide coaches to do so. 

Cheryl shares more detail around the process she went through to achieve her MCC credentials, why she is so glad to have done it, what it offers her and her coachees, as well as what taking two attempts at submission taught her about herself and her coaching. 

Robert and Cheryl discuss how far the profession has come in the last few decades, touching on how it has matured into a ‘true profession’, sharing where they feel it might head in the near future. Cheryl also offers her perspective on the place of coaching within Social Impact work, and why pro bono coaching is important to her. 

During this fascinating discussion, Cheryl shares the value of professional coach training as she sees it, speaks on being perfect and getting caught in the processes, and touches on the value of always being true to ourselves as coaches.

The Coaching Supervision Podcast - Theory and Practice Brought to Life

If you're a coach or coaching supervisor, this podcast is for you.

Combining short reflections on practice issues facing coaches and interviews with leading coaching supervisors, the podcast takes you on a journey in to the practice of coaching supervision.

As a coach, the podcast serves to develop your "internal supervisor" - that quiet voice that helps you make sense of your practice, notice in the moment and deepen your practice through positive self-questioning.

As a supervisor, the podcast will explore a wide range of supervision concepts and contexts that might enable new ways to work, point to resources and books to explore and examine how supervision shows up in different ways.

This is the world's first podcast dedicated to coaching supervision and the art of becoming a truly reflective coach.

We hope you enjoy the episodes.
