Course overview

Whether you are looking to embark on a career as a coach/coaching psychologist, or develop skills for coaching within your workplace, this course will provide you with an excellent grounding for supporting others in reaching goals and making sustainable changes to habits of thinking and behaving.

You will be able to apply these skills in a variety of settings (corporate, healthcare, education, charity, etc) to a variety of issues (enhanced performance, leadership development, stress reduction, health and wellbeing, career development, personal fulfillment, etc).

You will learn about and practice the key elements of coaching, drawing on theory and evidence-based practice.  This includes:

  • Core principles, such as questioning, listening, being non-directive and non-judgmental
  • Behavioural frameworks for structuring conversations, drawing out information, and setting goals
  • Psychology based frameworks for digging deeper where there appear to be psychological blocks to performance.

This course is an intensive 5 days and this format allows attendees to re-energise and reflect on their learning over the weekend.

    Victoria trained a small group of us in Coaching Psychology. It was a fantastic course - well thought out, informative, fun, interactive, ethical and very practical. I thoroughly enjoyed the course itself but it was Victoria who made it interesting, insightful and her love for the subject very much shone through. I could not recommend her teaching and her course more.
