Mental Health and Coaching

Mental Health and Coaching

Mental health and coaching are intrinsically linked - everyone we coach has mental health. As such, coaches have the privileged position of gaining an insight into the mental health continuum of a coachee as we are invited into their past, present and future.

With this privilege comes a responsibility around the boundaries of coaching and how we ensure these are clearly conveyed. This sounds simple in theory, but in practice getting it right can feel like a world of testing decisions and blurry lines.

The truth is that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to staying mentally healthy and therefore coaching can play a huge part in wellbeing as it supports people to find ‘what works’. A sound knowledge of the positive links between mental health and coaching can enable a coach to help an individual or a community to implement tools and cultures that have a profound impact on long-term wellbeing.

However, at other times, a coachee may be walking the thin line between mental health and mental illness leading a coach to have to make big ethical decisions about the appropriateness of the relationship.

This CPD session will provide a safe space to explore both the empirical research and our own beliefs around mental health and coaching by covering:

  • A brief history of mental health: its impact on society; mental health statistics; common misconceptions; mental health versus mental illness; the impact of the pandemic
  • Our boundaries as a coach with regard to mental ill health and what to do in a crisis
  • Some common mental health illnesses – supporting a coachee with finding the right help
  • Coaching as a non-clinical mode of intervention - unconditional positive regard, global listening and other coaching tools that support wellness
  • Relationships between goal setting, values and mental health outcomes
  • Mental health in the workplace – cultural and organisational patterns; coaching for equality and links with mental health; stigma and its impact
  • Coaching approaches – e.g. Mental Fitness Coaching or the Five Ways to Wellbeing
  • Looking after yourself as a coach: contracting, mentoring and supervision
  • Coachee case studies

This session is part of our Continual Professional Development (CPD) for Coaches Programme. This training is aimed towards those wishing to advance their coaching knowledge and therefore you will need to have previously engaged in foundational coach training.
