Health & Wellbeing Special Interest Group

Special guest Professor Sarah Corrie looks at Taking Care of Ourselves: an Introduction to The Health Awareness Tool.

In a world that seems to be changing with increasing rapidity, the ability of coaches to recognise, understand, and address their own well-being needs is now a vital skill. However, relatively little is known about the self-care needs and practices of coaches, with few resources available to guide coaches in how to develop systematic personalised self-care plans.

Grounded in the concept of formulation, this webinar introduces the Health Awareness Tool as a means of helping coaches develop greater self-awareness of their well-being needs and formulate individually-tailored approaches to self-care.

This session provides a practical illustration of the Health Awareness Tool and offers ways in which participants might apply it to their own circumstances and needs. While the webinar focuses on the needs of the individual coach, the implications for coach training and practice are also considered as collectively we move into a future that is likely to pose many, as yet, unforeseen challenges.

Hosted by Andrew Parsons PhD, this virtual group is open to all EMCC UK members and non-members who have an interest in, or work in, the health and wellbeing coaching and mentoring sector. The intent is to meet bi-monthly with guest speakers, networking opportunities, the latest thoughts on coaching and mentoring techniques, accreditation and CPD. We aim to build a specific community with shared experiences.

Join us for a 6pm start. The session will run for 60 minutes.
