Coaching for wellbeing

Coaching sessions can be provided by telephone, online through Skype or Zoom, or face to face.

Session time and dates will be agreed with your allocated coach.

The coach’s role in the partnership is to use their skills of listening, reflecting, and questioning to help you to:

  • Explore your life and the field of possibilities that’s open to you
  • Identify your untapped resources and your unrealised potential
  • Choose which courses of action make most sense to you
  • Make the desired changes to your life

Sessions are limited to 10. To find out more about what coaching is, how it's different to counselling, and if it's right for you, see our Coaching for Wellbeing information leaflet.
