Building confident, courageous, healthy, creative & ultimately, happy OTs
We truly believe that OT is a great profession. Occupational Therapists are amazing people who believe passionately about helping others achieve meaningful occupation, participation and engagement. OTs are the go to people, they always have a solution to a problem or know how to find one, they are always creative, fun and resourceful – that’s why we love them so much! We also have an exciting vision for a much bigger role for OT in society, in the future.
“The coaching has given me confidence. My uncertainty about the future has gone and I have clarity of vision. I’m now happy to make plans and having goals and working between sessions helped. It’s an ongoing process and I’m willing to take more risks” “In retrospect I now think I’ve changed the way I deal with things. I feel I’ve got more time. I don’t rush at things. I’ve got more control – not panicking any more, not stressing and being more objective. I can stand back and see the wider picture. I am standing in my own power” “It was a great experience… and I would love to do coaching in OT. We can’t facilitate others to be unless we are that ourselves” “It really gave me a confidence boost. Being listened to in this way felt special and it really helped me to clarify where I’m going”

Feedback from Hertfordshire County Council following a recent individual training day “Coaching as a tool to enable service users”
“really insightful into the therapeutic use of self and our own values and beliefs”
“would consider further learning”
“we need more courses like this that are OT specific and challenge our thinking”.
Jen’s remit was to provide an introduction to coaching and its potential use as a tool to enable clients. It could easily have been a two day course but still provided participants with ideas and practical tools. Thank you.’
