    The training programme consists of:

    • an initial 2-day Training in the PCI Core Curriculum skills, covering all the skills needed to deliver Health & Wellbeing Coaching.  This is followed by a skills development and supervision programme covering the second two days of the 4-day training:
      • 6 monthly group Skills Development Sessions that focus on the Coaching Conversation and how to put the skills into practice to achieve the best outcomes, along with guidance and support around the role;
      • 6 Individual Supervision Sessions, alongside a coach’s own caseload of patients in their role as a Health & Wellbeing Coach;

    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).

    Note:  Coaches will ideally have completed the first 2 days of the training before working with patients in the role of a Health & Wellbeing Coach; the second 2 days is alongside their patient caseload.

    ‘Health & Wellbeing Coaching’ is a Supported Self-Management ("SSM") 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 a key performance indicator for Health and Wellbeing Coaching.

    KYOH uses the structured agenda-free coaching conversation model that evolved out of the Health Foundation's Co-creating Health Self-Management Programme ("SMP"). This model is aimed specifically at supporting effective self-management and increasing patient ownership and activation. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in multiple primary care contexts as measured through increases in the evidence-based PAM® measure, with associated reductions in healthcare service needs. The model encompasses the Personalised Care Institute’s-accredited skills for health coaching within a coaching conversation structure. The key is having good core coaching skills combined with an understanding of how to work flexibly within the coaching conversation structure to be able to meet patients where they are, whatever their current activation level, and support them as they move forward.
