Coaching Skills:
Coaching Body Intelligence and Wisdom

Online via Zoom
Tuesday 22 October 2024
9am - 12.30pm

Coaching in relation to instruction and training was introduced in the field of academia around 1830. Sports coaching and business coaching extended the field and it was some time later before life coaching took shape (often credited to Thomas Leonard in the 1980s).

Modern day coaching takes on a number of different styles and approaches, and until recently has been a largely head based, talk focused intervention.

Today, coaching continues to expand and modalities around somatic, body-mind, and embodiment  practices are becoming popular. Working with the body to communicate with a range of body based intelligences, as well as taking account of external influencing factors enables coaches to offer a more systemic, integrated approach to more fully understand life situations – and offer a coaching approach that enables clients to make changes.

This workshop will introduce the concept of somatic and embodied coaching, alongside working with multiple intelligences to offer a broader scope of coaching based on current research and neuroscience.  In the workshop you will explore: what intelligences can be considered; how to access and communicate with those intelligences in new ways; and to explore how to deepen and extend a connection to an individuals’ inner wisdom.

Learning Outcomes

·         To introduce and explore the concept of the role of the body in coaching and personal development

·         To explore the range of intelligences that can be accessed to increase self awareness

·         To offer insight into how to communicate with different body intelligences

·         To experience an introduction to embodied coaching around a real life situation

Who Should Attend?

The workshop is deal for:

o   Existing coaches and counsellors who want to explore working with body intelligences

o   Managers, leaders, teachers, social workers and health care professionals who work with, and support people to make positive change

What Past Participants Said

  • I thoroughly enjoyed Suzanne as a speaker and educator.  She spoke from both her head and heart.

  • I used some of the practical tips the very next day with clients, felt great to be able to jump straight in.

  • It was informing, clearly presented and easy to understand.  I came away with improved skill base and helpful ideas to use in the therapy room.  A great presenter!

  • I enjoyed the mixture of theory and practical strategies and tools.  I like having research based ideas and suggestions that I could take into my practice immediately.
