There’s no denying the success of mindfulness in recent
There’s no denying the success of mindfulness in recent years.
It’s used and promoted from the boardroom to the birthing room, and the classroom to the changing room, with business, health, education and sport all enthusiastically adopting it to help with wellness, stress-management, focus, performance and more.
But what does it mean for us as coaches? How can we use it, where and with whom? And, indeed, how does it fit with traditional, non-advisory coaching?
How can it help us to coach more effectively when facing clients struggling with stress, overwhelm, perfectionism and other common coaching issues? And how can it help us manage ourselves better in the coaching space?
That’s where this two-day course comes in!
You will be immersed in the theory and practice of mindfulness for coaching, emerging with powerful new tools and the confidence to use them.
As has been experienced by both coaches and clients alike, mindfulness in coaching offers new ways to increase client insight, self-awareness and creativity, as well as tools and approaches to deal with challenging emotions, anxiety, hidden assumptions and stress.
More importantly however, it will help you to manage your own presence and emotions in coaching, offering ways to approach your coaching with a beginner’s mind and free yourself from distractions and assumptions.
Whilst this course has been designed primarily for coaches who are new to mindfulness and who want to bring this to their coaching practice, those with experience of mindfulness are also welcome as the course will help explore how mindfulness can fit alongside coaching.
The course has been recognised by the International Coach Federation as providing 12 hours of Continuing Coach Education and so can be used for coaches renewing their ICF credentials.
Through a rich mix of trainer-led sessions, peer practice and experiential exercises, you’ll learn:
- The 7 Mindful Attitudes that will underpin your practice
- How to use meditation and mindful moments in coaching
- How to use mindfulness skills to coach around difficult emotions
- Ways to employ mindfulness to enhance client creativity and awareness
- To teach easy-to-follow mindfulness methods to clients
- To manage your own presence and emotions with mindfulness
Here are some testimonials from some coaches who have previously completed the course:
‘Thank you, Animas Team, for having organised the “Mindfulness for Coaching” Seminar. Special thanks to Emily Johnston for having led it in such an engaging, relaxed and inspiring way! I very much enjoyed revisiting the philosophic principles of meditation and the practice sessions. The seminar provided me with a deepened understanding and appreciation of the power of meditation – something, I will apply for myself and in my coaching sessions.’ – Bettina
‘I found the weekend of Mindfulness for Coaches very useful and very enjoyable (despite the extreme heat). Emily delivered the course material very well and in a way that is easy to learn. I am also incorporating mindfulness into my life by doing a mindfulness meditation first thing in the morning and also try to be more mindful during my day (a work in progress). It is lovely to meet like-minded people and having the opportunity to learn from more experienced coaches. I want to work with people who have been bullied in the workplace and I believe mindfulness is a very good tool to use.’ – Annette
In this blog post, coach Maggie Campbell shares her experience of our accredited course in Mindfulness for Coaching, including the benefits of incorporating mindfulness approaches into your practice and her key takeaways from the weekend.
