About this event:
Embodied Coaching is a method that helps the coachee access their implicit ‘non-conscious’ knowledge and explore how it influences their behaviour, habits and relationships.
The term embodiment in this context refers to patterns of behaviour we develop throughout life to manage the world around us. These patterns have a physical manifestation expressed in body processes including posture, movement, tone of voice and breath, that are often not in our awareness. As a coach how ‘we show up’ is to do with our embodied presence.
The workshop will introduce how the body can be used in coaching. The main part will be experiential where you can try out different ways of accessing implicit knowledge to increase awareness, and how you might begin to work with your coachees.
The workshop is open to all who are interested in learning more about how to use the body as an additional skill in their practice.
Those interested in experimenting more with this concept are invited to attend a follow-on practice session facilitated by Jenny at the AC Bradford Co-coaching forum on 11th October.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Attend more closely to the body process in your coaching practice
- Widen your range of interventions to include body process
- Enable coachees to experiment with body process
