Welcome to Elaine Patterson Executive Reflection, Coaching and Supervision

Reflect | Create | Inspire

Elaine’s purpose is to bring the energizing, creative and humanizing powers of reflection, reflective learning and reflective practices to leaders, people professionals and development practitioners everywhere for purposeful, courageous, compassionate, and ethical practice.

Elaine’s pioneering campaign and forthcoming book “Reflect to Create!” is based on the findings of her original research. “Reflect to Create!”  is also inspiring new roadmaps and a new suite of offers to help leaders and people practitioners learn how to access their our own unique creativity, brilliance, humanity and wisdom to – as Gandhi said – “BE the change they want to see in their world”.

Elaine is an international executive coach, coach supervisor, thinking partner, organisational development consultant and writer. She is Co-Founder and Creative Director at the Coaching Supervision Academy’s International Centre for Reflective Practice. Elaine’s work is grounded in her 20 years of senior leadership and corporate experience, in her rigorous relational, systemic and psychological training, her mindfulness, her original research and in her love of the arts, nature and Nordic walking.

“I would recommend Elaine to anyone in search of an Executive Coach. Whilst allowing me always to set the agenda and pace at our meetings, she is nonetheless rigorous in bringing me back to my strengths and development needs, enabling me to take charge of my on-going development, and to identify for myself successful work-related strategies and solutions. I leave meetings with Elaine feeling positive, empowered, and energised”

Althea Efunshile: Executive Director at Arts Council England
