Wellbeing Coaching Packages – for all staff

Three sessions of individual coaching to boost wellbeing and vitality

Why Wellbeing Coaching?

Many organisations are adopting a proactive approach to mental health and wellbeing for their people. These employers acknowledge their duty of care for the mental health of all staff, and recognise that mental health conditions present substantial costs to their organisations. 

While EAP programs are still the most common form of wellbeing workplace support, they have not proven to be effective in improving wellbeing ability, wellbeing motivation and psychological safety.

Proactive wellbeing coaching has been found to be effective in research:

  • A 2018 survey found that a small percentage of workplaces were providing wellbeing coaching, and where they did, workers were more likely to be consistently thriving  
  • Companies that provide mental health support (EAP) AND wellbeing development improved in both wellbeing and performance.²

“My coach was very relatable, knowledgeable and facilitated the conversation in such a way that you can discover deep insights into your behaviours and motivations.  She was able to appreciate the complex challenges that corporations pose to our wellbeing.

What scientific models underpin our wellbeing coaching program?2021-08-17T10:00:29+10:00

1. The “Wellbeing-Engagement Framework” (Grant & Spence, 2009), where a focus on elevated levels of wellbeing and engagement at work result in employees who flourish and perform better.

2. The 6M model of wellbeing and peak performance (Dr Suzy Green, 2019) is based on Positive Psychology – the science of optimal human functioning. These six key psychological strategies have been identified in research and practice to make a significant impact on people’s wellbeing, purpose, positivity, performance and resilience. The various tools and techniques that make up this model have proved to be successful in bringing about individual transformation, positive cultural change and contributing to organisational effectiveness.

How is Wellbeing Coaching different from traditional executive coaching?2021-08-04T01:44:11+10:00

Wellbeing coaching has a primary focus on enhancing wellbeing. It does not have specific workplace performance outcomes on input from leadership. It may be provided to a member of staff or teams as an employee benefit or as a proactive approach to enhance mental health and wellbeing.

How effective is coaching?2021-08-04T02:05:23+10:00

Coaching can facilitate goal attainment, enhance psychological and subjective well-being and resilience, while reducing depression, stress or anxiety. There are also two RCT studies of workplace coaching, with one finding evidence for the effectiveness of coaching on health, life satisfaction, burnout and psychological well-being. There is also some evidence that coaching and mentoring are associated with higher levels of job satisfaction and commitment to the organisation and several small scale pre-post coaching comparisons (without random allocation) showing that coaching may enhance well-being.

What is Positive Psychology Coaching?2021-08-04T02:05:54+10:00

It is evidence-based coaching practice informed by the theories and research of positive psychology for the enhancement of resilience, achievement and well-being (Green & Palmer, 2019).

What is Coaching?2021-08-04T02:06:14+10:00

Coaching is a research-informed, strengths-based, solution-focused, conversation enabling the striving towards personally meaningful goals, and which enhances personal resilience and wellbeing.
