CBT Tools for Coaches - 18th & 25th March 2021


Cognitive and Behavioural Approaches are particularly useful for challenging unhelpful beliefs and assumptions, as well as negative patterns of behaviour. This session will introduce a few key concepts and run through some examples of how these can be applied with clients.


Suitable for:

Accredited coaches who would like to learn some cognitive and behavioural techniques to use in coaching sessions with clients. In particular, this session will focus upon working with clients who hold rigid beliefs or behaviour patterns. For example, perfectionism, people pleasing or low self-esteem.


Outline Content:

  • Theory regarding human behaviour
  • The cognitive model of change
    • How to truly help a client to recognise and understand their own beliefs, assumptions and behavioural patterns
    • How to help the client question and challenge these from different perspectives
  • The behavioural model of change
    • How to use behavioural interventions to identify a simple, clear path towards lasting change
    • Using exposure and habituation in order to make new behaviours more comfortable


By the end of the workshop, delegates will:

Be able to help clients to break out of rigid habits and patterns such as perfectionism and people-pleasing.

Have learned about how to work with really “stuck” patterns of behaviour and how to help people break out of them.

Have practiced applying practical techniques for tackling mood, motivation, anxiety and real behavioural change.

Understand what is really going on when someone is resistant to change through our typical coaching interventions and how to help them to make some progress
