Course outline

In developing this qualification, we combined Kingstown College’s cutting-edge coaching principles, tools and focused experiential learning with the multi-faceted concept of Recovery, to develop a unique coaching model for mental health.  The aim is to enable mental health and wellbeing practitioners to use this innovative and dynamic approach to support their clients in a journey of recovery and discovery through coaching.

Module 1

In the first module, students are introduced to Mental Health and Wellbeing Coaching and the concepts of Recovery and Discovery as they relate to this branch of coaching.  Students learn how to structure a professional coaching session using core coaching tools and other concepts such as appreciative inquiry and feed forward.

Module 2

In the next module (Module 2), students look at several coaching techniques and interventions that help create new insights for their client.  The student develops their own personal coaching style while studying associated areas such as the elements and values of a person and solution-focused coaching.

Module 3

In Module 3,  we step back a little to examine the 3-step coaching technique, before we look at how to use our core coaching skills in a little more depth.  Students also look at concepts such as commitment, motivational interviewing and belief systems and how they relate to the coaching process.  We discuss the core competencies of a Mental Health and Wellbeing Coach and the use of these competencies in a good coaching session.

Module 4

In Module 4, students are presented with the fundamental concepts of the Recovery Approach and recovery-specific tools such as WRAP®.  The application of the recovery approach to mental health and wellbeing coaching is discussed as well as coaching for resilience where students learn how to use some resilience-building coaching tools.  Students are also introduced to conflict coaching and some of the related tools.

Module 5

In Module 5, we discuss coaching from a Positive Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural perspective and examine how some of the associated tools can be used in coaching.  We examine some wellbeing coaching tools used in a Positive Diagnostic System and learn to apply them to mental health and wellbeing coaching. 

Module 6

In Module 6, we explore the Life and Career Planning Coaching Model, the concept of Single/Double and Triple Loop Learning and Transformational Coaching.  At this point of the course we also look at the importance of Mentoring and Supervision for a Coaching Professional and discuss the EMCC Code of Ethics.
