As the methodology for coaching supervision has grown and developed in recent years, so too has the need for comprehensive engagement with the needs of supervisees. This ground-breaking and much-needed new book from Monica Hanaway presents a unique existential approach to coaching supervision.

This book includes an introduction to the model, with emphasis on the philosophical focus of the existential coaching approach and concepts such as uncertainty, freedom, emotions, values and beliefs, meaning, and relatedness. Hanaway offers supervisors ways of working with their supervisees on each of the key existential themes, as well as a comparison with other coaching supervision models.

This book describes how a supervisor can bring an existential approach into their work, both with existential coaches and with those working in different modalities who are interested in adding to their portfolio of service. It will be of immense value to academics and students of coaching psychology.

Reviews and Endorsements

Monica Hanaway sees perfectly the whole process of coaching supervision, through as in an x-ray. She generously shares with her readers the latest discoveries, offering both a theoretical score on coaching supervision and concrete examples. The book came to me at exactly the right time, inspiring to try new techniques in working with clients during consultations. Monica Hanaway has the talent to explain theoretically complicated notions in a comprehensive style, simultaneously keeping the highest standards of professional research." _ Dana Rone, Sworn Advocate at Law, Certified Mediator, Docent in Turiba University.

"I'm delighted that Monica Hanaway has followed up her Handbook for Existential Coaching Practice with this book aimed at supervisors. I am unaware of any other books in this field. Whilst not being didactic it gives a very clear picture of how existential coaching supervision can look. She shows this through reference to theory, practical approaches and the use of case examples." - Colleen Harris, MVO, FRSA, MICG, Personal Brand Coach, Communications Adviser, Diversity Adviser, Deputy Lieutenant of Greater London.

"Monica Hanaway has shown very clearly how supervision, a practice that tends to be associated with psychotherapy, works with existential coaching. I particularly liked how she compares the expectations of a psychotherapeutic supervisor and a coaching supervisor from an existential and phenomenological perspective. The readers of this book will come away with a clear understanding of existential coaching supervision, existential coaching and existential phenomenological thinking. I see this book being of great value for experienced and less experienced supervisors of coaches and psychotherapists." - Diana Mitchell, Supervisor, Coach, Psychotherapist.

"Monica brings us closer to the supervision of coaching as a strategy that is concise and assertive, a strategy where listening, pausing and the suspension of the judgment prevails in addressing the description of the phenomena in supervision. I appreciate the practical style Monica Hanaway has used to bring her professional life into the writing of this book. When reading it, I identified with the coach, as someone who has the challenge of live supervision to improve professional performance. Monica goes further and connects deeply with her coachee, as shown the practical examples in the book, where paradoxes and apparent contradictions emerge, which Monica masterfully turns into sources of learning for readers. With this book, I was able to explore the rebelliousness of the existential-phenomenological approach by reading how non-directive support is given to the coachee." - Carlos Ignacio Gallego Soto, Master in Social Psychology, Leadership Mentor, Business Consultant, University Adjunct Associate Professor, and Associate Professor at Dialogo Existencial - Existential Dialogue - Center for Studies in Existential Philosophy and Phenomenology.
