    Case studies from course participants

    “A woman who came in with general problem. We quickly homed in on what was important to her and empowered her to approach social services for support. All done in 10 mins and she left looking happy and listened to. Could have taken me 30 mins, blood tests, repeated consultations to follow up etc. and felt unsatisfying to me.”GP
    “Coaching a patient who wanted to lose weight. Didn’t know where to start: disliked the gym and exhausted from traditional advice given. They agreed to make smaller changes which made the problem seem more manageable. For me, this took the pressure off trying to find a solution as the patient was able to find one herself. The initial change helped her feel more motivated to change other aspects of her diet and lifestyle.”Pharmacist
    “Client with depression, suicidal ideation, lack of motivation, tends to isolation, has multiple physical barriers. Impact highly positive starting with building rapport and trust, allowing client to lead sessions. Reflecting back made client feel listened to and understood. The whole coaching experience helped client see hope, move forward from being stuck, improve socialising, improve sleep, improve diet, improve self-care. Highly rewarding for myself from the start through to the end.” – Health Champion
    “A young gentleman that had not left his home for two years has been able to leave his home on a daily basis after the use of coaching techniques. Giving him the opportunity to think and take responsibility about ‘how to make changes’ impacted him immensely. He continues to make good progress.” – Occupational Therapist
