Our Health and Wellbeing Coaching programme is all about finding a framework for meaningful connections. It's about using a coaching technique to understand better and develop our awareness of the biology of stress as well as the importance of responsive relationships for our heallth and wellbeing. We focus on emotions and in particular our ability to pause and hold difficult emotions (emotion literacy or emotion intelligence). The learning starts with us as health, education and care professionals. As we develop insight into our own emotional world we then use the skills we have learned to support colleagues, clients and families strengthen their core life skills in emotion intelligence, emotion literacy and executive function. What we know from the science (click here for our evidence base) is that those of us who experienced adversity in childhood- especially if either in the womb or the first three years of life- are likely to have biological reasons for experiencing difficulty managing emotions when under stress. Our 4 day training is accredited for health coach training by the Personalised Care Institute and at foundation level by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC). Our 2 day training is for those already qualified as a coach who would like to learn more about coaching children, young people and families.

'In terms the principles of family centredness, working together, creating a common language and upholding safeguarding, holding the child and family at the centre not only enables a person-centred relational approach but shifts our mindset toward a universal solution. Keeping the family and child at the centre moves us away from assessments and fixes – to fix the problem; it takes us away from the traditional trauma model of ‘identifying that family over there’ and then ‘doing something to them’. It moves us toward a coaching approach of encouraging everyone to tap into and grow their internal resources; it is an affirmative model rather than a deficit one, using a partnership, collaboration, relationship development, a ‘working with’ approach to understanding, exploring and finding ways to strengthen core life skills and executive function.'

'I can’t actually tell you just how powerful I have found this training, not only to the work I do but also on a personal basis, of course this makes absolute sense and proves how clever Sarah has been in nurturing an individual’s awareness of self-care whilst allowing them develop in other areas and constantly enhance their coaching skills. I also find that Sarah kind of drip feeds further optional development in order to expand knowledge, I have taken advantage of this and find I can’t get enough of it'.
'One of the most comforting things I have found is how welcome I feel within the programme, Sarah always answers any questions I have so quickly, I feel part of the ECHAP community, this is also thanks to the support chat group on WhatsApp, another amazing resource!'
'I’ve taken so much from this course , however the golden nugget would probably be what I have learned about the science of the brain architecture, to understand what is happening within the brain as we are experiencing certain responses, using metaphors to adapt the explanation to suit our coachees - this always leads to a “beautiful light bulb” moment, this then lays the foundation for openness to mindfulness and we’re half way there!'
