Retreat for Coaching Professionals

Updated: Nov 10, 2023

9th - 12th November 2023

Hewenden Mill , Nr Haworth, West Yorkshire

Calling all Coaching Professionals who fancy hanging out for a weekend away to further develop their understanding of evidence based practice.

Over the weekend I'll be delivering four workshops that are detailed below - and my weekend collaborators, Susan Richardson and Maddy Roberts will be offering some additional activities to make sure the weekend builds a supportive and fun community. This includes:

  • Fully catered accommodation which is nestled in 12 acres of glorious countryside, West Yorkshire

  • A range of accommodation options to suite different budgets and preferences

  • An optional workshop on 'Building the confidence to build your own website' with Susan

  • Trip to Saltaire - a UNESCO world heritage site to visit Salts Mill and the surrounding village (taxi's included)

  • Fun after dinner coaching 'exercises' with Susan and Maddy

  • Cosy evenings spent with new friends - relax have fun!

  • Free time to enjoy some quiet time reflecting or to enjoy the company or surrounding area.

As many of those who follow my work know, I believe that us coaching professionals can be quite social creatures, but we're often operating independently and don't get those 'water-cooler' moments to chat about work, share ideas and feel a bit of camaraderie. This retreat is designed to help us build both memories and community whilst also focussing on the core components of delivering great coaching for our clients.

Learning retreats such as these are fully tax deductible and give us a nice opportunity to step away from our client work and focus on ourselves. We want to make the experience fun and informative.

The Neuroscience of Coaching: Unlocking the Power of the Brain!

In this immersive session, we will dive into the fascinating world of neuroscience to enhance your understanding of how the brain functions. By delving into the intricacies of the brain, we aim to increase your confidence as a coach and equip you with valuable insights to optimise your coaching effectiveness. Workshop Overview: Neuroscience provides us with a deeper understanding of how our brain works and influences our thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and overall well-being. As coaches, having knowledge about the brain can significantly enhance our ability to support and empower our clients. This workshop will explore key concepts in neuroscience and demonstrate their practical applications in the coaching context.

Exploring Coaching Psychology: Models and Evidence of Behaviour Change

This insightful and practical session aims to equip you with a foundational understanding of coaching psychology and provide you with effective tools and knowledge to support your clients in their behaviour change journeys. Workshop Overview: Coaching psychology is a dynamic field that combines principles from psychology, neuroscience, and coaching to facilitate personal growth and behaviour change. In this workshop, we will delve into various models and evidence-based approaches to behaviour change, allowing you to deepen your coaching practice and effectively guide your clients towards achieving their desired outcomes.

Harnessing the Power of Nature: Outdoor Coaching for Inspiration and Well-being

This unique and rejuvenating session will take you outside into nature (bring a coat!), where we will explore how the natural environment can serve as a powerful catalyst for coaching, inspiration, and personal growth. Through engaging activities like derive walks, awe walks, and attention restoration techniques, we will immerse ourselves in the wonders of nature while discovering effective coaching tools and techniques. Workshop Overview: Research has shown that spending time in nature can have profound effects on our well-being, creativity, and clarity of mind. In this workshop, we will harness the therapeutic qualities of nature and integrate them into coaching practices. By combining the principles of coaching with the awe-inspiring beauty of the surrounding area, we will unlock new possibilities for personal transformation and coaching effectiveness.

Integrating Learning into Practice: Coaching Supervision for Real-World Application

In this collaborative and reflective session, we will draw upon the collective expertise and real-world professional practice of all attendees. Together, we will explore how to effectively integrate the learnings from the previous workshops into our coaching approach, specifically focusing on applying these tools and techniques to reflect on existing clients and unlock new possibilities in our work with them. Workshop Overview: Coaching supervision is a vital component of professional development for coaches, offering a space to gain valuable insights, receive feedback, and refine coaching skills. In this workshop, we will leverage the collective wisdom of the participants to engage in supervision-style discussions that integrate the learnings from the previous workshops into our individual coaching practices. By examining real-world client cases, we will explore the potential for growth, transformation, and enhanced effectiveness in our coaching approach.


As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see some of you at the Retreat!
