KYOH’s training programme provides all the skills needed to deliver Health & Wellbeing Coaching, together with support to put the skills into practice to achieve high-quality outcomes.
The training programme consists of:
We find this is an effective way for coaches to both learn and develop the skills to support effective self-management and patient activation (the aim of Health & Wellbeing Coaching).
“A simple and yet very effective way of coaching patients to self-manage.”
“A formula that I can use to improve success rates with behaviour change.”
“I now have a greater understanding of my new role and feel more confident than at the start.”
If you have a whole cohort of Health & Wellbeing Coaches (9+), or nearly a whole cohort, we can arrange dates to suit you.
If you need training for an individual or a small number of Health & Wellbeing Coaches, they can join 'open-access' courses.
The next Core Curriculum 'open-access' courses are scheduled for:

‘Health & Wellbeing Coaching’ is an intervention recognised by NHS England as a significant driver in improving people’s ability and confidence to manage with one or more health conditions, including depression, stress, anxiety.
KYOH has been working with the NHS in delivering the intervention through Primary Care since 2013 and has achieved consistently good, often outstanding, results.
These outcomes are realised by giving patients ownership and control over their choices and supporting them to achieve what’s important to them.
It is as effective for people with mental health conditions (depression, stress or anxiety) as it is for people managing physical health conditions.
The key to achieving results lies in: supporting people to recognise the importance of the role they play, building their confidence to manage, and supporting them to problem-solve. This is known as ‘patient activation’.
‘Patient Activation’ is the Key Performance Indicator for Health and Wellbeing Coaching.
The following are sample case studies:

KYOH provide a 2-day training programme in PCI Core Curriculum Health Coaching Skills for Social Prescribing Link Workers, Care Coordinators and others in healthcare, social care, community or voluntary sector roles
The 2-day training in Core Curriculum skills is aimed at anyone working with patients to enable them to have ‘Better Conversations’ that support self-management and patient activation.
The skills are universal and can therefore be applied to any role. The training is tailored to the context of the participants’ roles.
Health & Wellbeing Coaches use the skills in the context of a structured programme to support patients to self-manage effectively and improve their levels of ‘activation’. Those working in other roles will use the skills as toolkit, picking and choosing from the skillset depending where they are in the ‘Coaching Conversation’ at any point.
This PCI-accredited 2-day course provides training in health coaching skills to support self-management in line with the Personalised Care Institute’s Core Curriculum. These all currently take place remotely via Zoom or Teams. The training is complementary to the Health & Wellbeing Coach training. The courses are independent of each other and also work well together.
If you have a whole cohort of Link Workers, Care Coordinators, etc, we can arrange dates to suit you.
Otherwise, we run some 'open-access' courses for localities who don't have a full cohort.
Dates for the next available 'open access' courses are:
