About this Event


The "Coaching Skills for Healthcare Professionals" programme is a two-day, intensive course specially designed to meet the specific challenges you face working with patients and colleagues alike.

This dynamic programme covers both Coaching & other Contemporary Communication skills to bring you a fresh approach to the every-day complexities you find at work.

Perhaps you've heard your colleagues talk about coaching or even had some introductory training yourself?

Coaching provokes & guides problem-solving in a way that facilitates others to come up with their own solutions. We help build the problem-solving muscle of those we engage with, rather than carrying the constant pressure of providing all the solutions.

By bringing a coaching approach, we help our patients find their own, most-ideal ways forward. In the clinical setting, this builds patient engagement, increases health confidence and reduces service-dependency.

A coaching approach can also transform how we perform as Educators & Team Leaders. By using coaching methods, we empower the people around us to find clarity & drive innovation, be they our patients, our trainees, or our team.

"Very useful skills ...I have already noticed changes in my patients since using the techniques for 1 week" . Course Participant May 2019

These skills are especially useful for trainers, appraisers, managers and those with an interest in Quality Improvement.

"A useful, productive, insightful and thought provoking course with plenty of skills to take away and use in clinical practice." Course Participant May 2019.


This highly interactive and practical course covers:

  • Core Coaching Principles
  • Coaching Techniques
  • GROW framework
  • Patient Activation Measurements & how to clinically apply this information.
  • Managing Difficult Conversations & Managing Conflict (NVC)
  • Building Trust
  • Cultivating our Emotional Intelligence
  • Working with Limiting Beliefs
  • Coaching approach in Teamwork, Leadership & Organisational Culture

We place a strong emphasis on how to apply these skills within a "10 minute consultation.”

"Very intriguing and practically applicable course that changes the way you communicate and engage with patients. " Course participant May 2019

We take a coaching approach to the training itself, ensuring the content is relevant and immediately applicable for each participant. Our aim is that you will leave with an firm understanding of coaching and its relevance to your work AND new skills and tools which you can apply immediately.

The course is accompanied by a manual.

Who is this for?

This Coaching course has been designed specifically for Doctors & Health Professionals and is suitable for any member of the team whose aim is to enable their patients to make real and positive change to their health.

No prior experience in coaching skills is necessary to attend this course. It is both suitable for complete beginners and those who have previously done introductory half/full days/ two day courses.

Our Spring 2019 programme had participants who had never previously encountered coaching ideas before, as well as those who had previously attended a two day course with a different company. We were delighted that everyone found the course both accessible and stimulating.

What refreshments are provided?

We provide tea, coffee and snacks on arrival from 9:45, and for morning and afternoon breaks. To keep costs low, lunch is not provided. Please either bring your own or discover some of the many good places to eat nearby.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you can no longer attend then a colleague can use your ticket, but please let us know directly or by updating your booking. Places cannot be transferred to other RD1st courses, or be refunded.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please contact bronyagorney@gmail.com
