A day-long event open to all.
In the morning there are parallel sessions for those new to Integral Development Coaching and those who've already attended our training. After lunch, both groups join together in an enlivening exploration on the special topic of the day.
We invite you to join us if:
- You’re curious about coaching, particularly our developmental approach to coaching, and wish to bring it into your work or life as a coach, consultant, leader, or coaching client.
- You’re thinking about joining a professional coach training programme and would like to meet faculty and graduates, and get a strong ‘inside’ feel of the nature and topics of our courses in integral development.
- You’re interested in the lasting development of people – yourself or others.
- You’re a current student or graduate of any of our programmes – and you’d like to connect with others and continue your learning.
For those new to our work: An introduction to Integral Development Coaching
A session specially designed to help you find out if our approach to coaching is a good fit for you and learn new methods for working with yourself and clients.
This session begins with an interactive presentation on the work of Integral Development Coaching, during which you are welcome (and encouraged) to participate with questions and discussion. At the end we often have time for a thirty-minute coaching demonstration, working with someone from the audience (perhaps you’ll want to volunteer to be coached).
For our graduates and students: Deeper into the Ten ways, with Justin Wise
The 10 Ways is a powerful model for understanding adult development and can be a rich source for understanding clients as well as for designing coaching programmes. In this workshop we'll deepen our understanding of each of the ways, looking in particular at how our sense of ourselves and our experience of anxiety and overwhelm transform as we make developmental steps in our lives. We'll also explore the world of the later stages of adult development, uncovering themes that can be illuminating and pragmatic even in work with clients who are at the much earlier stages of 'Immediate Concerns' and 'Balance'. You'll leave the workshop with new ways to observe life and new distinctions that you can use to bring skilfulness, creativity and sensitivity to your coaching.
For everyone: Developing Mindful Self-Compassion with Kate Fismer and Justin Haroun
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is an empirically supported 8-week training program developed by the University of Westminster’s Centre for Resilience to cultivate the skill of self-compassion through experience, group work, meditation and inquiry. There is a growing body of research that suggests that self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional wellbeing, less anxiety, depression and stress, maintenance of healthy habits. Kate and Justin’s experiential workshop will introduce and provide a map for how we can work with the three key components of self-compassion - self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced, mindful awareness.
Kate Fismer is a qualified Mindful Self Compassion teacher, coach and Heart Math Group Facilitator. She also has a BSc in Naturopathic Medicine from the University of Westminster. She cares deeply about helping herself and others explore and understand the 'story of them’ to facilitate flourishing and finds an incredible beauty in how human we are in our shared core beliefs and vulnerabilities. She has found that bringing the intention to meet these with gratitude, kindness and compassion can invite the opportunity to live with a richer and deeper experience. Kate is a Resilience Consultant and Operations Manager for the University of Westminster’ Centre for Resilience

An integral approach to coaching
Our integral approach to coaching is a powerful way of working with people that aims to make a pragmatic and profound contribution to individuals, organisations and society.
