Person-Centred Coaching (PCC) aims: A person-centred approach to connection and access, enabling personal empowerment through fostering a positive personal self-identity.  PCC encompasses the different ways we think, act, communicate, move and process information, celebrating the unique strengths and perspectives of individuals with diversity of neurological profiles.

Our Person-Centred Coaching training is aimed at skilling support workers who work with vulnerable and disadvantaged children, young people and adults with disabilities. This training encompasses evidenced-based research by the Sutton Trust, IOE and the Gottman Institute.

The interactive workshops focus on how professionals, including paraprofessionals can have a positive impact on enabling individuals overcome challenges so that they can engage with the things they need to do, want to do and are expected to do, including environmental challenges. This training enables paraprofessionals to develop the understanding, compassion and connection when working with the wide spectrum of neurological differences and needs within the settings that they work in.
Paraprofessionals are support workers who work with vulnerable children, young people and adults with disability. This includes teaching assistants, youth workers and support workers in education, and the care industry.
