    The training programme consists of:

    • an initial 2-day Training in the PCI Core Curriculum skills, 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 putting the skills into practice;
    • 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).

    Some feedback from the training courses:

    “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.”

  • Find out more about Health & Wellbeing Coaching

    ‘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:
