Mental Health and Wellbeing Coaching

“Coaching can be described as a way of working and communicating with people to assist them to find balance, enjoyment and meaning in their lives. ”


is defined as observing or finding something new or unknown.  Using powerful coaching tools, methods and approaches,  the coach takes a client, who is in Recovery, further along pathways of Discovery, enabling them to find the fulfilling life they want.


is a deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills, and/or roles in order to live a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life’ (Anthony, 1993).


There is currently widespread interest by practitioners, service users and peers in adapting and utilising coaching principles as part of a wellness-focused approach for supporting people dealing with mental health challenges.²  A coaching model sits extremely well with the Recovery approach and the two concepts share many common principles.

Mental health challenges in the past…

In the past, mental ill-health was viewed largely from a medical model perspective, where illness is diagnosed and treated.   And while there is an important place for a medically-oriented treatment plan for people dealing with mental health challenges, recent years have seen the evolution of mental ill-health treatment, to incorporate the Recovery model as the preferred mode of treatment practice.¹

Our coaching course content…

The course content includes many of the coaching processes and tools that are explored in the College’s other coaching programmes.  This content gives the Advanced Diploma in Mental Health and Well-being Coaching for Recovery and Discovery a solid coaching foundation.  New material that is particularly pertinent to mental health and well-being and resilience has been added.
