Coaching - Coaching for Health

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Organised by NHS Leadership South West in association with The Performance Coach


Wednesday 19th March 2014 - Holiday Inn, Taunton

The NHS is currently facing one of the biggest reorganisations in its history, and there is no doubt that the proposed changes present huge challenges for all involved. As the NHS starts to focus on increased self-care and shared decision-making with patients, and as clinicians are required to take a more significant role in managing colleagues, The Performance Coach is leading the way in developing coaching programmes that can be applied to - and help improve - patient care.

This one-day master class will give existing coaches and clinicians an opportunity to explore the concept of coaching for health and its application to increase and accelerate patient self-care.

During this one-day master class, participants will be introduced to the concept of coaching for health and to a shared understanding of how coaching can blend with clinical care to encourage patients to take greater responsibility for their own care and health.

The Master class will be facilitated by Kate Hesk and Dr Andrew McDowell, both Directors at The Performance Coach. Andrew is a clinical psychologist and has been leading the development of the coaching for health agenda within The Performance Coach and across the UK over the last 4 years. Kate, a qualified speech therapist, is also a Master Coach and has also been supporting the coaching for health agenda.


This CPD master class is intended for all internal coaches currently on the NHS Leadership South West Coaching Register.

If you are a qualified coach (minimum of ILM 5 required) and not yet on the regional register, please contact for joining instructions. You will then be able to access all future CPD opportunities, free supervision and use the online register tools to track your coaching hours, monitor relationships and keep a reflective log.
