Confidential, safe and supportive conversations with an experienced coach

This service offers a supportive, safe and confidential phone or video conversation with one of our trained internal coaches, with the opportunity for you process your thoughts and reflect. Colleagues will be encouraged to explore and understand their own situation more fully, consider issues from a different perspective and enhance their effectiveness and well-being.

Specific benefits could include an increased sense of focus, confidence and resourcefulness; an increased ability to handle challenging situations; an increased ability to relate to and influence others; an increased capacity to see things from a different perspective and an increased ability to preserve well-being.

To find out more, and to access this service, please send an email to include your department and division so that we can allocate you a coach from a different area of the Trust.
