Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is the most widely used evidence-based practice for improving mental health guided by empirical research.  Over the last 30 years the applications of CBT have been widely promoted and its core principles have transcended therapeutic interventions and are now being practised across a broad range of talking treatments.  However, while the core principles of CBT remain sound, much has changed in the application of CBT especially within the context of coaching. Rob will focus upon brief interventions as well as current ‘hot topics’ such as imagery, compassion, and transdiagnostic processes.


Session one: Updating CBT theory, best practice and myth busting

The aim of this session is to provide an overview of the latest empirical research, what really works and why.  Rob will draw on his academic knowledge and experience as a therapist, supervisor and lecturer to update your understanding of the topic, helping to form a solid base from which to build on throughout the day.

Session two: Application of CBT in Coaching

Understanding how and when to use CBT.  This presentation will build on the previous session, helping you to learn when and how to apply the principles of CBT when working with clients. Rob will highlight the key themes that will integrate into a coaching framework and provide insight how use skills and techniques with clients.

Session three: Live coaching demonstration

After lunch, there is an opportunity to see Rob at work in a live coaching demonstration, applying the principles presented in the morning sessions in a real-world context.  Should you wish to take part in a live coaching session as a coachee please be sure to register your interest as availability is limited. Details of how to register will be included in your booking confirmation.

Session four:  Coaching CBT clinic and Q&A

In our final session of the day Rob will open up the floor and take any specific questions you have on applying CBT within your own practice, work place and beyond. This will be an opportunity for you to share your experiences, increase your understanding and critically reflect, ensuring you leave the master class feeling confident and ready to embrace coaching CBT.
