Mindful Coaching and Enquiry Skills
Time & Location
About the Event
This course takes your work to the next level, by adding potent, tried and tested coaching skills to the repertoire of guiding interventions. The course will also help you personally to get unstuck in areas such as lack of confidence and self-criticism and enhance your ability to be compassionately present in challenging situations.
The pathways towards personal integration we will explore in depth are:
Exploring needs and values. Awareness skills open our eyes to the gift that difficult feelings and conflicts offer us. They point us to our core values and needs and give access to their life force. (Based on the teachings of Marshall Rosenberg on NVC (nonviolent or compassionate communication)
Experiencing the moment. Rather than ‘talking about it’ we invite the client to connect with their physical experience in the body. We learn to discern when this is useful and different ways to access the more visceral aspect of experience. We come to trust the body’s wisdom.
Changing view points. Being able to recognise our old stories as just one of many possible ways of seeing a situation can be immensely liberating. Using the imagination, we can experiment with and choose a different, more empowering view point.
Embracing all parts of ourselves. Drawing on IFS (Internal Family Systems), we get to know the the hidden or disliked part of ourselves and dialogue with them, discovering their positive intent. This leads to acceptance and deeper levels of peace and integration.
Moving into action. We learn some tools for identifying and supporting practical change.
Course structure: The course runs over 3 non-residential weekends in Glasgow and Edinburgh 10am -5pm. Each weekend will include practice opportunities in dyads and small groups. They can be also be done as stand-alone weekends.
