Health coaching for charities and support groups
You work in a charity or run a support group, have heard of health coaching and its benefits and want to learn more. Including how it could be offered as a service to your service users/members to help them manage the impact of their or a loved one’s illness, long-term condition or injury.
But this may be the first time your charity or support group is exploring this and you may have questions such as: what is the evidence for health coaching, how do I pitch this idea in my organisation, where do I find the coaches, how do I determine if the coach is good, how do I launch and run a scheme, what is best practice, how much will it cost, can it be done cost effectively, etc, etc.
Answering your questions about health coaching
As an accredited coach, having set up a health coaching scheme for a charity, organised and managed coaching/mentoring schemes in the corporate world, led a charity and been a trustee, I can answer your questions. I am also intimately familiar with the impact of serious illness/injury and long-term conditions on individuals and their families, and my work in the coaching and charity worlds has focused on empowering this population to live well with and beyond it.
Working together, I can help you create a health coaching scheme for your charity/support group. And if needed, I could run the scheme for you. At an effective rate.
Examples of my work include
- Webinar on supporting people returning to work after a serious illness/injury, November 2015
- Research on the impact of coaching on the wellbeing of people living with long-term neurological conditions, presented this research at the British Psychological Society’s Coaching Psychology Conference, December 2013
- Presentation on taking control delivered at the Transverse Myelitis Society’s conference, 2011

Take part in research
Have you experienced the onset of a serious health issue and talk about acceptance in relation to it?
If you are happy to share your experience, I’m researching what acceptance means to people like you.
