Coaching Skills for Therapists and Health Professionals

Coaching is a powerful approach to working with individuals and groups. It enables people to work towards what they want rather than what they don’t want. It is being fast recognised as the “missing link” in helping people to change health beliefs, raise self efficacy and develop sustainable plans.

This day is aimed at Occupational Therapists who want to explore coaching and consider using it as part of their professional “tool kit”. It aims to provide some practical tools, hands-on practice and personal experience of coaching. It will show how coaching not only benefits our clients, but also supports our own personal and business development.

Workshop outcomes

At the end of the day, participants will have:

  • Identified and understood the fundamental processes involved in coaching including opportunity to practice some coaching tools, and have experience of being coached
  • Understood the barriers to coaching
  • Explored possible applications of coaching

This is a practical day – come and be inspired!

Here’s what previous attendees said about other workshops:

“Very good course. Thought provoking, informing and well presented.”

“Huge benefits – great to meet other OT’s who are intrigued by coaching… lots of material… food for thought”

Come and see how coaching can enhance your practice.
