Introduction to Mindfulness Based Cognitive Coaching
In recent years many people have become interested in what has been termed ‘Mindfulness Based Approaches’. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) are therapeutic interventions used in medical and mental health settings to treat clients with a variety of physical and psychological difficulties. The concepts of Meaning and Purpose have been identified as key factors for increasing psychological as well as physical resilience, something equally important whether related to work or to life in general.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Coaching (MBCC) is the latest development that draws upon the strategies of Mindfulness Based Approaches and the skills and methodology of Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC). MBCC is applied to client groups who do not fall within the medical or therapeutic client arenas. It is used in individual coaching programmes as well as within a group context within organizations to increase individual resilience, creativity and productivity with proven psychological and physical benefits. With a growing research base it is an approach that can demonstrate its added value.
Patrizia Collard and Gladeana McMahon have been developing the MBCC Model since 2007 with individuals as well as within the corporate setting. They have written on the subject and are now offering a one day introduction to MBCC for coaches. Both are respected professionals with a proven track record.
