This paper describes a coaching supervision framework and practice and the effects of it on participants in the monthly supervision groups. The framework was originally developed in an action research process aimed at improving and standardising supervision practice and consists of a conceptual model and a structure for the supervision conversation. In 2008, in the spirit of continuous improvement, a qualitative researcher was invited to explore the effects of this revamped supervision practice. The paper draws on three sources of data: observation of supervision groups in action, written reflections from supervisors and interviews with supervisees.
