Course Introduction

The aim of this course is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be able to help people and organisations to flourish. It combines the study of cutting-edge empirical research and theory on wellbeing with the practical skills and competencies you need to apply this expertise in the real world. This course is delivered in our School of Psychology, which is a large and exciting community with a global reputation for the high quality of its teaching and research. This innovative course is based on cutting-edge research already being produced by members of the academic team who are shaping their respective fields in collaboration with colleagues around the world. Your capacity as a coach will be developed by our guidance on how to build a coaching partnership through the use of reflective questions leading to enhanced self-awareness. You will also develop a helpful blend of techniques to challenge and support clients.

When you graduate from this course you will operate as a more flexible consultant or practitioner in a rapidly developing and increasingly sought-after field. You will be well versed in relevant scientific literature, with the confidence to apply it in your professional practice. This may involve working with individuals on a one-to-one basis through executive coaching, or working at organisational level using positive organisational scholarship.
