Coaching for Wellbeing

A digital coaching service is now available to support all health and social care staff.

How do you navigate through, recover from and adapt to challenging situations? Do you sometimes find yourself getting overwhelmed and turning to unhealthy or unhelpful coping mechanisms?

With support from Coaching for Wellbeing you are encouraged to explore and build on your wellbeing, and develop and strengthen your resilience in a supportive space with qualified and experienced coaches.

What is Coaching for Wellbeing?

  • Coaching for Wellbeing is a free service that was launched in May 2020 to provide tailored support to staff working in health, social work and social care.

How can Coaching for Wellbeing support me?

  • It offers you a safe, confidential space to reflect on what is going on for you right now, and why you feel the way you do.
  • You can discuss any issues that you are currently facing and finding challenging, professional as well as personal; and be supported to develop strategies to cope with these situations, as well as ways to adapt to and learn from them.
  • If you lead others, you can use this space to explore how you can support the wellbeing of your team.

How does it work?

  • We will match you with a coach and you will work together with as much or as little structure as you wish. You will receive two hours free coaching online and you have the flexibility to use this time the way that suits you best.

What other services do I have access to?

The National Wellbeing Hub services include:

  • Counselling
  • Space to talk – personal and professional
  • How to lead and support others
  • Building resilience
  • Improve your wellbeing
