Coaching can be transformational for our clients. We’ve all experienced those sessions where an ‘a-ha’ moment brings a breakthrough as they suddenly see things from a whole new perspective. They uncover their own power and strength, and you both sense that this shift means that things are about to change for them.
But sometimes, we hit a block. That moment of clarity and self-awareness that inevitably precedes change seems elusive, and no matter what you try, nothing seems to really get deep in to the heart of the matter.
By turning to psychology, we can being to truly understand how people think, feel and behave. Decades of research can explain how people perceive, understand and respond to their world. It can tell us how the brain works, how sustainable change happens, and what influences decision making and action.
Imagine being able to draw on this knowledge and use it to transform your coaching practice. You may or may not know some of this stuff already, either intuitively (gained from your experience of being human), or through your own study of psychology. But you may not be sure how to use or apply it consistently, or in the most effective way.
By being consciously aware of this field of wisdom during our coaching, we can guide our clients towards self-discovery, and create the optimal conditions for genuine learning and sustainable change to happen.
Adding this knowledge and relevant tools and techniques to your own coaching practice will enable you to support your clients towards thriving and flourishing in a way that will truly transform the way you coach.
I’ve created what I believe to be the first in-depth online training programme in the world, approved by the British Psychological Society for the purposes of continuing professional development of coaches, that will cover a breadth of knowledge of some of the core areas of psychology that are directly applicable to coaching. This training will enable you to:
develop an understanding of some key psychological concepts that can help clients gain deeper clarity, motivation, confidence and commitment to change
equip you with relevant tools and techniques that can be weaved in to your current coaching toolbox so that you can truly create positive change
become more knowledgeable and evidence based, and therefore confident that you’re doing everything you can to help your clients to flourish.
