NHS Health Coaching
Supporting patient self-care and self-management is a key priority for the NHS and providing training and support for staff in the use of coaching skills is increasingly seen as one way in which this can be achieved. Health coaching helps people gain and use the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to become active participants in their care so that they can reach their self-identified health and wellbeing goals.
Bev (Health Trainer) recently attended a Health Coaching session & found it extremely useful! “I found the Health coach session very rewarding especially the T grow model for behaviour change (Topic, Goal, Reality, Options, Will). I really enjoyed the session and found new ways of working.”
Health coaching is a patient-centred process that is based upon behaviour change theory and is delivered by health professionals with diverse backgrounds. There’s some great resources & webinars via NHS England website (https://www.england.nhs.uk/personalisedcare/supported-self-management/approaches/).
