This workshop is designed as an introduction to the evidence-based approach of somatic coaching, or the inclusion and involvement of the body within the context of a coaching relationship.
The foundational theory of somatic coaching is that the body holds emotions, wisdom and intuition about ourselves, our lives and our direction that we can tap into to help us find greater authentic experiences. Therefore, this workshop will look at how this practice connects body mind and spirit and how we can approach this work with our clients.
The workshop features a mixture of experiential interactive learning and exercises, lecture, and peer engagement. The introductory discussion of the concept of somatic coaching can help coaches appreciate how to enhance our practice with a careful attention to our clients’ physical experience. Discussions also focus on how we can approach this topic in a secular, professional and safe manner that adheres to the coaching code of ethics set out by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
This workshop – which is part of The Enrichment Series – is for coaches, practitioners and professionals without a coaching background who are interested in personal and professional development, and exposure to Positive Psychology, Positive Psychology Coaching, Evidence-Based Coaching, and beyond.
