Coaching for Wellbeing – boost for winter

The Coaching for Wellbeing service is being boosted during winter to support the workforce during seasonal pressures. It’s free and available for all health and social service workers as part of the National Wellbeing Hub.

The coaching service is designed to support workers with any issues they face including:

  • personal and professional
  • supporting individuals in building resilience
  • helping them to take action to improve their wellbeing
  • and helping people explore how they lead others through challenging times.

Feedback shows that coaching has made a strong, positive difference to the overall resilience, wellbeing and morale of those who have taken it up with comments such as:

‘It has been a transformational experience, which saved me professionally during the most difficult time of my career.’

‘It was hugely helpful in allowing me to take a step back and take time to reflect and recognise how I was feeling, why, and where I could hopefully move forwards.’

What to expect

Your coach will guide you through a process that will start by helping you make sense of what is happening for you right now and to clarify what you want to focus on and the difference you intend to make for yourself through coaching.

They will work alongside you to help you achieve your goal, tailoring the journey to suit you by using the process, skills and tools that will support you best.

You and your coach can work together with as much or as little structure as you wish and decide the balance of reflection and pragmatic action that suits your needs.

You will also be supported to develop some self-coaching skills to recognise and manage triggers as well as identifying your existing strengths that have helped you face challenging times in the past.
