”I was privileged to have Pirjo Puhakka as my coaching supervisor in 2018. Pirjo is a seasoned coach who draws from a wealth of international coach training and has experience with all kinds of coaching clients.
Coaching supervision was an excellent way to take time for structured reflection on all aspects of my coaching practice. As a coaching supervisor Pirjo created a confidential and creative space in which I was able to be curious about all aspects of my work and deepen my ability to be present in the process of coaching. Coaching supervision has helped me to formulate my own coaching philosophy and create better coaching interventions for the benefit of my clients.
I highly recommend Pirjo Puhakka as a coaching supervisor for anyone wanting to take their coaching practice to the next level.”
