I’m privileged to be part of the core team which set up Coaching through COVID in March 2020. This pro bono coaching programme is an opportunity for any NHS or care worker to have access to a skilled listening ear in a safe, confidential and objective environment.
The coaching is an opportunity for individuals to unload and re-resource themselves during and beyond COVID, and is provided by coaches who are professional, experienced and psychologically-minded. Each coaching programme provides 6 sessions of up to an hour, with the option to extend if coach and coachee would like to. Coaches are aware of the demanding schedules that their coachees are juggling, and do their best to be flexible – so they can be available in the day, in the evening and at weekends.
