Mature organizations increasingly require their coaches to engage in supervisory relationships so that they may review and reflect on their work in order to do it better. In short, supervision creates a space for reflective inquiry where the work of the Coach being supervised provides an avenue of deeper learning and growth for the Coach. Ultimately supervision becomes a space and place where a Supervisee can develop and deepen their own confidence, capacity and coaching presence.
Coaches with a full practice or internal coaches use individual sessions to target issues from coaching that are pre-occupying or puzzling. At times there may be competency based or ethical questions or dilemmas that would need perspective and inquiry.
is a program where up to six certified Coach practitioners gather at the same time in a facilitated format to discuss their work and learn from and with each other. These virtual gatherings prove to be a powerful format for individual and collective transformation. These sessions are usually 90 to 120 minutes depending on the number of people.
Mila Dorosh, ACC,
As promised my update, I just had a phenomenal session with my client, where we experienced the magic of working with the heart and elevating own position as equal to others.
I felt very confident and had fun with the coaching, and it came naturally and with ease just the way I imagine great coaching to be. And I am so grateful for the last two supervision sessions we had as it expanded my ability to be present and in tune with the client and the space around us.
Hope all is well!
Desiree Tung, ACC,
Sabreena has been my supervisor over the last year. Our sessions have had a major impact on my development as a coach. Sabreena has an innate ability to create a safe and open space that allows me to explore who I am and how that affects how I coach. She is tremendously intuitive and has an amazing presence, which allows me to consciously focus on how to grow as a coach. I would highly recommend Sabreena as a supervisor – not only is she an incredibly gifted coach, who exudes a kind and generous spirit, but I look up to her as a source of inspiration.
This was a very positive supervision experience, which marked a lovely period of growth for me as a coach. I initially approached Sabreena due to her research on Asian leaders in multinationals, hoping to enhance my appreciation for that lens. Indeed, that was a space of growth for me over the year – she gently invited me to consider some new perspectives about culture and about possible system dynamics for my coachees. What was also very important for me in the supervision was dedicating time to the concept of being. I believe that Sabreena’s counselling expertise added to this exploration we contracted for her to bring certain counselling elements into the supervision from time to time.

Serene Mahaffy, ACC,
Sabreena has been a truly inspiring mentor coach throughout my ACC accreditation and renewal stages. She leads by example her belief in continuous learning and development and always pushes me to strive to be a better coach in all aspects. She is a true master in her field with her stellar knowledge of the ICF Framework and competencies and her extensive coaching and mentoring experience. Drawing from the latter, she provides deep and rich insights in the constructive feedback she delivers in a direct and judgement-free manner. She creates a safe and trusting space for me to practise and work on my coaching skills and to clarify my uncertainties in.
Kathrin Krause-Harder, ACC,
I have been fortunate to have Sabreena as my mentor coach twice over the course of the last four years. While working with her, I very much benefited from her vast experience, knowledge and the insights she shared.
Her balanced approach of supporting and challenging, helped me to gain confidence as a newbie when I first started out as coach.
As a more experienced coach, I found her ability to easily detect weak spots to work on and strengths to take advantage of in your coaching as incredible valuable. Each session meant walking away with new learnings. I am very grateful for this experience and the opportunity to work with Sabreena not just once, but twice.
Amily Ang, ACC,
Sabreena has been both a facilitator and a mentor coach in my ACC journey. I had the privileged of having both group and individual mentoring from her. Sabreena is authentic and genuine. Both the coaching and mentoring sessions with her are highly impactful. Every session I had with her never fails to inspire me to want to be a better coach. She leads me to new insights and perspectives to the way I develop as a person and also as a coach. It has helped me built my foundation and bring awareness to my own learning. She continues to inspire and motivate me in my coaching journey.
Psychotherapy is a process where the client and the therapist explore recurring and stressful emotional feelings that create ‘stuckness’ or an inability to move forward. These instances might include past trauma, a current crisis such as relationship break-ups, illness and death and would benefit from a professional trained in psychology.
Therapy encourages a client to become aware of past experiences that unconsciously influence and impact current reality. It allows you to embrace your past, so that you can fully live in the present and embrace your future with confidence and purpose. Learn who you really are, where you are going and discover ways to bring more meaning into your life.
When did you stop saying what’s true for you?
(speaking up about what matters most)
When did you get stuck in a rut and believed that you were alright?
(distrusting your instincts and thinking you have no choices)
When did you give up living for yourself?
(fulfilling other peoples dreams and not your own)
When did you learn to be fearful?
(not being present and not listening to your inner guidance)
A relationship of trust is important for therapy to be successful. Therefore, it is recommended that an initial session is arranged to explore the presenting issue where recommendations are offered by the conclusion of the meeting. There is no expectation or obligation to continue.

Sabreena has been with me on the most challenging journey of my life, teaching me about myself. It was her genuine love and spiritual insight that gave me the confidence to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Her counseling sessions were a real boost.
Self-discovery with Sabreena has opened many doors in my life and transformed my perspectives widely. Thank you Sabreena once again and wishing you peace and joy in all future endeavors.
Eve Weston – Physiotherapist
I am just writing to say thank you so much for the supremely positive influence you have had on my life. I am finding the advice and guidance that you have given me to be invaluable. I guess it has made me realise both how far I have come in the past couple of years but also how far I still have to go. But I think most importantly, you have shown me that I have the ability and the power to make that progress and ensure that my life becomes more positive as time goes on and I learn to interact with my world more effectively. I want to sincerely thank you again for your amazing guidance and advice. You have had a truly positive effect on my life and also on my outlook. I do not quite know how to thank you but I am sure that in the short term, the kind thoughts and love that I am sending you will suffice.
Thank you. Yours Truly
Thought provoking and enlightening and I am grateful for the connection with you. Made the sessions more powerful. The tools given to me to find my voice and instigate conversations have enabled us to face difficult conversations together as a family.
A partnership whether it is a business duo or couple initially unite because they have common goals. Over time they are likely to face difficulties and seek guidance on overcoming their relational challenges.
You will be assisted with techniques on how to really listen to each other, communicate more effectively and resolve conflicts. Identifying ways to have a more rewarding relationship leads to personal contentment, mutuality and a more conscious relationship.
