This course will discuss approaches for presence when clients present with a range of emotions. We will discuss how to be present with, acknowledge, and learn ways to reflect emotions during coaching sessions. Exploring emotions allows the client to have deeper clarity regarding behavior change. In addition, we’ll look introspectively at our personal reactions to emotions and how to mindfully hold space for ourselves. Finally, we’ll share resources for coaching emotions.

Our discussion will include creating awareness around a client’s distress that may be viewed as trauma and how to use your coaching skills to acknowledge and be present with it. We will discuss the boundaries of our scope of practice and the responsibility of referral.

What you'll learn

Upon completion of this program, the coach will be able to:

  1. Discuss the importance of creating safe space for coaching clients
  2. Demonstrate mindful awareness and presence and explain how it relates to the exploration of emotions
  3. Learn ways to acknowledge emotions and how to further explore them with their clients
  4. Review coaching emotions as related to NBHWC organizations
  5. Learn new resources to deepen their understanding of the definitions of emotions
