Learning to coach can take you in a myriad of directions.

This course is for you if you’re looking: –

  • to gain an advanced accredited coaching qualification
  • to bring about transformational change for individuals and groups
  • revolutionise your lifestyle medicine interactions
  • to start your own lifestyle coaching practice
  • to develop a portfolio career
  • to have quality time with those you wish to help
  • to simply learn, grow and develop yourself.

    Research from the UKIHCA has shown that 88% of the adult population understand that lifestyle is the main cause of chronic disease in the UK and want to know how to take control of their health, however, the same research shows that only 18.5% of people feel confident in taking control of their health on their own. People want to change but don’t know where or how to start, and perhaps, more importantly, how to maintain any changes they do make.

    “Working with a coach offers the support and framework that can benefit many people and make things easier as they take back control of their own health.”
    Dr Rangan Chatterjee
    UKIHCA Advisory Panel

    If you are a GP, and especially if you’re interested in lifestyle medicine, I actually think it’s a must now. Even if you’re not, it will enhance your consultation skills. It will really help you to focus on what’s important.

    I think it really is transformational and I’d recommend anybody to do it.

    I signed up for Tom and Helen’s course after completing the BSLM diploma. I wanted to find a way to support others in their behaviour changes by using a coaching approach. I got way more than I was expecting! The course was a lot of fun – I actually looked forwards to my Saturday morning sessions!

    The online learning between courses was comprehensive and immersive – I loved the way that we were asked to use all of the techniques we were learning on ourselves. It gave me a very practical understanding of coaching, which I am now using as I launch a career as a Lifestyle Medic and coach. Thanks so much Tom and Helen – your course has been life changing for me! 

    Dr Hannah Coysh

    This course has been a brilliant experience with much personal and professional growth. The course design is fantastic and suited my preferred learning style perfectly – learning the theory of many different coaching approaches, models and tools followed by immediate application in the coaching room. Our small group of amazing health professionals enabled me to feel safe whilst practising my new coaching skills. Tom is great -he is so passionate about coaching, very skilled and relaxed in his approach to facilitating our group and offered much encouragement, support and reassurance. I now feel I am a more confident and competent coach with a range of coaching techniques to use as needed in the coaching room with my coachees. Coaching others brings me much joy and this course has taken my skills and knowledge to much higher levels. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to develop their coaching knowledge, skills and personal coaching style as this course will be transformative.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What's involved in the course?
    Coaching is a practice and there is no way that you can learn how to do it by just reading about it or talking about it. You have to watch others doing it well, try it out yourself, make mistakes, receive feedback and begin to understand how to be effective in a coaching conversation.

    Which is why this coaching programme involves a blended learning approach, where you will learn the theoretical aspects of the course online in your own time. Then, when it comes to the classroom based element you will be able to discuss the theoretical elements with your fellow course members and try out the ideas from different approaches for yourself. There's plenty of time to practice the techniques you'll be learning over the entirety of the programme, so that they become firmly embedded.

    What is the time commitment?
    The programme takes place over 6 months. There are 11 half-day workshops taking place during that time. The workshops run from 9:30am to 1:30pm to accommodate those with busy work and family schedules. In between the workshops there are approximately 2 hours per week of online material including really interesting videos, audio recordings and activities for you to complete.

    We ask you to arrange to practice your coaching with one of your peers on the course at regular intervals too. In order to gain the accredited qualification you will need to complete an additional 16 hours of coaching with practice clients, but we'll help you to find them and also these hours can be completed after your training on the programme has ended.

    What do doctor's do with all that they learn on the course?
    We now have over 180 healthcare professionals who were former students as our alumni. A number of them are working professionally as health coaches, often in a professional portfolio career.

    Others use their new learning with their patients and have shared their enhanced experience of using coaching skills in consultations.

    Yet more former students have shared with us how beneficial it has been to have the new skills they have acquired when working with colleagues, including trainees and mentees. Some people have even spoken about how learning to think differently about conversations has revolutionised their personal relationships with family and friends.

    How many students will I be training with?
    We are unique in bringing together small cohorts of doctors, with between six and nine delegates on each programme. This provides us with the ability to dedicate time and resources to everyone on the course and to ensure that it is the best possible training experience for everyone. We love working in this way and really getting to know the doctors on the programme. We find that the personal development journeys that our delegates travel along whilst on the course is transformational in itself.
