Coaching for Courage and Compassion

Thu, 23 Apr to Fri, 24 Apr 2020

The Knave, St Ethelburga’s, 78 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AG, UK

A two-day course that will extend and deepen your coaching practice.  

You will explore and learn how to coach for courage and compassion using experiential exercises and models based upon the work of Professor Paul Gilbert.  

Your highly qualified and skilled facilitators will practically guide you in: 

  • what compassion is and why it’s an important part of coaching

  • how self compassion can powerfully manage our self-critic 

  • how to develop compassion for ourselves as coaches as well as our clients 

  • the mindful practices that enhance the imagery of compassion


Day one: gives participants the opportunity to learn about Compassion Focused Coaching from the inside out. 

A key component  of this approach is to start with ourselves, discovering our own blocks, resistances and fears to developing a compassionate mind.  This includes some of our deep seated, culturally influenced ideas and resistances to the idea of compassion, especially self-compassion, and how much we think we need a self-critic to succeed.  By engaging in experiential practice participants will be able to get a more felt understanding of the model.


Day two: provide the opportunity to try out what insight and learning has been gained to your existing coaching practice.  

This will include exploring ways of weaving the model into your work, and practicing how you would share some of the theory and methods with your coaching clients.  There will also be scope to help you think about planning your own next steps in developing your knowledge, skills and experience of this exciting new approach, to yourself and your work. 

If you have already attended our association for coaching one day workshop Introduction for Coaching for Coaching and Compassion this training will offer deeper and extended learning and practical application.
