About this Event

Making Sense of Clients' Stories: The Power of Formulation - a Meyler Campbell Masterclass with Sarah Corrie

In a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world, the expertise of coaches will be called upon in new and diverse ways. To respond effectively to the opportunities and challenges arising, we need additional skills that can enable us to conceptualise, problem-solve, and design interventions in novel ways and at different levels. In this Masterclass, Professor Sarah Corrie will share her knowledge and understanding of formulation, and why it is such a vital skill in this context. Neither a model nor a technique, formulation is best understood as a ‘meta-skill’ that can enrich our understanding of our clients’ needs and support us in devising effective and innovative interventions, regardless of the model of coaching that we use.

Formulation is an emerging area of interest within coaching. Yet within applied psychology, it has long been identified as the hallmark of the expert practitioner. In this Masterclass, Sarah will explore why this might be the case and how underpinning coaching practice with formulation can provide a solid basis for designing creative solutions to meet our clients’ needs.

Attending this event will provide an introduction and orientation to formulation as a vital skill in coaching. In particular, attendees will discover:

  1. What formulation is and why it matters;
  2. How formulation can help coaches make sense of their clients’ needs and design more effective, individually-tailored coaching solutions;
  3. How formulation can support the process of coaching as it unfolds, including the ability to anticipate and respond to challenges.

Attendees of this webinar will be offered practical tips such as: understanding how formulation can benefit coaching practice; how to apply formulation to individual clients; tools and questions to enable attendees to explore the relevant and use of formulation in their own practice and beyond. Attendees will also be provided with further background resources to further their knowledge and understanding of formulation.

Sarah believes that humility is an important facet to her work; by being humble about our knowledge and the limits of that knowledge, it will open you to new learning and collaborations. She is also optimistic to what we can all achieve, individually and collectively – now more than ever its important that we do not lose sight of what we can achieve through collaboration and community. And finally, the responsibility to remain informed. We owe it to our clients, our colleagues, our communities, and ourselves, to ensure that the services we provide remain grounded in reliable and accurate knowledge. This means that as practitioners, we also have a responsibility to contribute to that knowledge through sharing our experience, expertise, and insights. As coaches we have a vital role to play in both using and shaping the knowledge that underpins the way in which our discipline evolves.

Professor Sarah Corrie is a Chartered Psychologist, Registered Coaching Psychologist and Consultant Clinical Psychologist. Sarah has authored over 80 articles for academic journals, professional journals and trade magazines, and nine books including, The Art of Inspired Living: Coach Yourself with Positive Psychology, and Supervision in the Psychological Professions: Building your own Personalised Model (co-authored with David Lane and Mary Watts). She has extensive experience in both the public and private sector, delivering coaching and therapy as well as working as a freelance supervisor and trainer. Sarah is a Founder Member and former Chair of the British Psychological Society's Special Group in Coaching Psychology and has a particular interest in how coaching might contribute to some of the most challenging issues of our time, including emotional well-being and mental health. Amongst her other roles, Sarah is a faculty member of the Professional Development Foundation and a Visiting Professor at Middlesex University. In 2016, she was the recipient of the British Psychological Society’s Achievement Award for Distinguished Contributions to Coaching Psychology and in 2017 was awarded a Fellowship of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies for her contribution to this field of scholarship. In 2020 she was appointed a Visiting Professor in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Counselling at the University of Suffolk.

Sarah’s first career was in the performing arts; she trained as a classical dancer with the Royal Ballet School before working with Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet. An injury ended her ballet career prematurely, but she went on to retrain as an actor. It was during acting that she first encountered the concept of formulation as a means of learning how to make sense of and portray different characters. So behind the ideas that have informed this masterclass lies not only the wisdom of scholars in the fields of coaching and applied psychology but also that of some very eminent actors and directors! All of them, in different ways, have inspired me to find new and creative ways of making sense of the challenges with which our clients present us.
