Coaching for wellbeing

Thank you for booking a coaching for wellbeing session. Please read the guidelines below so you know what to expect from the session. We look forward to meeting you.

1/ These guidelines are for coaching to be provided by Dave Corbet of Greengage Consulting Ltd under the Coaching for Wellbeing contract. By participating in the coaching you accept these guidelines.

2/ The purpose of the coaching support is to help surgeons, consultants and anaesthetists who want to make sure they are in the right frame of mind to contribute effectively and look after their own wellbeing. Examples of the issues that this support can help with include:

  • Exploring fears and anxieties that might prevent you from working effectively or around returning to work.

  • Re-building your confidence after a break from work.

  • Working through anything that troubles you about the ongoing covid 19 situation.

  • Finding the resources to look after your own wellbeing so that you don’t burn out or

    get over stressed.

  • Anything else that will help you feel in the right frame of mind to feel confident about

    work or returning to work.

 

3/ This support is coaching and does not provide a substitute for psychotherapeutic support where that is necessary. As such the client is responsible for their own choices and actions and the coach is not liable for any direct or indirect consequences of the client’s action or inaction.

4/ The contents of the coaching sessions are entirely confidential between the client and the coach.

5/ The only records that are kept are the client’s name, a two-word summary of the reason for accessing the support and the trust they work for, purely for contract purposes. Other than this no records of the conversation the client has with the coach are made or kept.

6/ In the event that the coach feels that you need psychotherapeutic support, you may be referred back to your own internal HR team to access suitable therapeutic support. Where this is the case this will be discussed with you before any referral is made.

7/ The client will be invited to complete an anonymous assessment of the impact of the coaching support to help NHS improvement assess the effectiveness of the programme.

8/ All sessions are delivered by Dave Corbet of Greengage Consulting Ltd and are delivered remotely via Teams or Zoom.

9/ By participating in the coaching session you agree that you may be contacted in the future to verify that the coaching took place.

10/ In case of queries or questions about the support these should be addressed directly to the coach or via that contract administrator Nicola Hosty, nicola.hosty@cht.nhs.uk

11/ If for any reason you can't make the session please let the coach know so that the session can be offered to someone else.
