All coaches results, whatever client group they are focussing on in their coaching practice, are being affected by the health of their clients. In addition, many people are having to deal with behavioural health challenges (illness) in their own lives or in the life of someone close to them. Coaches have a crucial role to play in these contexts and can assist their clients to connect to meaning as a way to trigger and sustain positive, long lasting change.

Recovery, Wellness and Health coaching is destined to become the largest coaching niche in the field of coaching and organisational development as we continue to recognise the impact of all aspects of health on coaching engagements.

Innovation, resilience, organisational development and adaptation all depend on people being well equipped physically and emotionally. Many people are not and this impacts on outcomes.
In this interactive workshop we will explore the use of recovery and wellness coaching techniques and approaches within variety of different coaching contexts. We will look at specific problems that arise when health challenges emerge in the coaching session, what we can do about them and the implications for best practice.

We will also see how the Meaning Centred Coaching Model (MCC) can provide a powerful motivation for change and recovery from challenges across a whole client’s life.
Counter intuitively coaches can be one of the best resources to work with people who are challenged by life crisis such as health challenges even though we are often trained that these are primarily medical problems and outside of coaching boundaries.

In fact all coaches are, whether they recognise and integrate it or not, coaching human health issues and as such we can be of great benefit to clients needing coaching support once we have integrated appropriate skills and knowledge.
