Introduction to Coaching is a course for anyone interested in personal life coaching and/or performance coaching within an organisation. The course focuses on a Cognitive- Behavioural coaching approach and coaching psychology. Issues surrounding the role of a coach, the coaching process and coaching techniques are introduced and students have an opportunity to try out both traditional and up-to-date coaching methods. Other practical issues such as the Coaching contract will also be discussed.



* Comparison of Coaching against other therapies/support relationships - Counseling, Psychotherapy, Mentoring, Teaching
* What makes a Coach?
* The Coaching contract
* Body language and Coaching


* Introduction to Goal setting and Coaching
* Practice coaching using the GROW model


* Introduction to Performance and Business Coaching (SS)


* Introduction to Cognitive-Behavioural Coaching (CS)

Teaching and Learning Strategies:

The course is participatory and students will be expected to work in pairs and groups and be willing to try out acting as both coach and coachee. Students should bring an issue that they would like to work on for their own personal coaching. It is important that this issue does not involve deep-rooted emotional problems that could be upsetting.

A workbook will be provided.
