How our Clinical Supervision Course events have supported your learning and development. I learnt: to apply the Maslow Hierarchy and Johari window into planning a supervisory session; that supervision needs to be individualised - in terms of learning needs and methods of giving teaching and feedback; that being mindful of learners in difficulty - appreciation for external work factors particularly. I enjoyed: ability to meet other members of the NHS, nice to have a different range of participants and how things are different in different areas; the different mixture of theory, group discussion and group work; the engaging presenters, good activities. Enjoyed the scenarios sections and the video to provide feedback on.

Health and wellness coaches are professionals from diverse backgrounds and education who work with individuals and groups in a client-centred process to facilitate and empower the client to achieve self-determined goals related to health and wellness. Successful coaching takes place when coaches apply clearly defined knowledge and skills so that clients mobilise internal strengths and external resources for sustainable change.
