OVERVIEW:

The course is based mainly on Standards 1 & 3 of the BPS' Standards in Coaching Psychology and covers core coaching skills and the psychology underpinning coaching.  It will build on your existing psychological knowledge and skills to enable you to confidently coach others.  It will ensure that the professional boundaries between coaching psychology and other domains of practice are clearly understood.

Most importantly, this course will allow you to actively construct knowledge and understanding rather than passively take in information.  This will allow you to incorporate and build new skills and information in to your pre-existing foundation of knowledge and experience - whatever your starting point!

SUITABLE FOR:

This coaching course is designed primarily for those who have a background in psychology who want to coach.  You might already be a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society, or a Graduate member who is just beginning their training.  If you are not yet a Graduate member of the BPS but have believe that you have a good grounding in psychology, please contact us for a chat before enrolling on the course.  

OUTLINE CONTENT:

We will cover some of the core competencies in coaching psychology including:

  • Define and contract work as a coaching psychology

  • Practice within legal, ethical and professional boundaries

  • Work flexibly with a range of coaching models 

  • Identify clients' exceptions, needs and requirements and negotiate priorities to maximise potential effects

  • Managing a coaching conversation including contracting/re-contracting, objective setting, insight/awareness building, empowering personal responsibility, action planning, identifying barriers, contingency planning, commitment to action

  • How to critically evaluate and use a range of evidence-based psychological skills, techniques and strategies in coaching

  • Learning and refine core coaching skills including rapport and trust, coaching presence, active listening, use of effective questions, summarising, paraphrasing and reflecting, refocusing attention, managing emotions and energy

  • Understand how existing knowledge and practice in psychology translates to coaching
