The Benefit of Psychological Approaches at Work
Coaching predates psychology as a discipline and the one-to-one approach has proved to have been effective for many decades. However, as the importance of the application of psychology at work has developed, so too have the techniques used in coaching, Coaching psychology is now a household name in an increasingly sophisticated profession.
How do we make sense of what many of us see as different applications of one and the same approach and how can a psychological approach bring real benefit to the organisation and its employees?
This session will address specific aspects of coaching and psychology: attendees will benefit from clear guidance as to how these can be applied in the workplace and will look specifically at
* Risk Vulnerability in Coaching
* Coaching for Safety
By attending this event you will also receive a free copy of Business Psychology in Action, published in 2015, whose authors include these speakers, and we’ll also be offering the opportunity to get your copy signed by the speakers after the session.
Everyone involved in coaching and psychology will benefit from attending this session.

Dr. Sarah Baker is currently a researcher at the University of Bedfordshire, where her research focuses on investigating practitioners’ views of the boundary between counselling and coaching. This entails gathering opinions from coaches, counsellors, coaching psychologists and counselling psychologists, regarding application and management of boundaries in practice. The research aims to identify whether discrete areas of practice for coaching and counselling disciplines can be established. In addition, the research may be utilised to inform codes of conduct, standards of training and ethical practice in future.
