Coaching to Change Lives is going online
Our Masterclass, Coaching to Change Lives, went on line in September. However, are now having a bit of a breather but may be offering another in July. Watch this space. Meanwhile I am giving online workshops for a number of organisations.
Comments from previous Masterclasses:
"The workshop Jules and Jenny ran on Coaching and Trauma has completely revitalised and shifted my practice"
"It is rare to find a training that can so powerfully shift your perspective of clients. This programme is a must for any seasoned practitioner"
"I wish I had attended a class like this years ago. This thought provoking day opened up new avenues of enquiry, constantly reminding us we are not diagnosticians yet at the same time recognising that there are things from the 'there and then' which play their part in the 'here and now'."
"What a great masterclass. Jules and Jenny put trauma into the context of coaching which was invaluable to me as a seasoned coach"
My Book 'Coaching and Trauma: moving beyond the Survival Self' was published in August 2019. Available also as an e-book. It is available through online booksellers; if you buy through the publisher www.mheducation.co.uk, and use code SMITH20, there is a 20% discount. It is in the psychology section.
One reviewer said:
" In this well-researched, practical and highly readable book, Julia Vaughan Smith explains how early trauma can impact us in our day-to-day lives and shows up in coaching. She describes the various ways that a client can present in coaching through their trauma, survival and healthy selves, she advises us to work with the client's healthy self and how to recognise if we are getting entangled with the client and what to do about it. The theory is brought to life with personal examples from Julia's own life story and relevant coaching case studies. Trauma and Coaching is essential reading for coaching supervisors and coaches and the important messages in the book can be shared, in an appropriate way, with clients. I thoroughly recommend it - it has transformed my practice"
“This work has proved both fascinating and significant in taking my coaching to another level. The insights I’ve gained from defining what trauma actually is and how this shows up in a coaching partnership, either in myself or my client, has made a profound change to how I work.
Shirley Greenaway, Executive Coach
"Knowing about Franz Ruppert's work helped me to understand myself and when I am coaching in survival mode, which allows me to be more in touch with my healthy self, both in daily life and as a coach. In addition, being able to share something about the theory with clients who are open to deep learning has helped their understanding of themselves." JHS, Leadership Coach, Somerset
