  • This one-day interactive workshop is designed for coaches and allied professionals who are keen to learn more about the psychodynamic model and its application to client work.
  • The ideas and techniques presented are based on Catherine's book
    Executive Coaching: A Psychodynamic Approach (Open University Press, 2011)
    which is recommended pre-reading for this event.
  • At the masterclass, Catherine will provide a clear and concise introduction to key psychodynamic concepts including the unconscious mind, psychological defence mechanisms and transference and counter-transference.
  • She will explain how these ideas can help you to:
    • Understand your clients in depth, including those thoughts and emotions that lie outside their conscious awareness.
    • Help your clients to manage anxiety and other difficult emotions at the outset of the coaching, so forging strong working relationships that rapidly engage them in the process.
    • Identify clients' characteristic psychological patterns through exploring their behaviour at work and within the coach/client relationship.
    • Develop techniques that promote significant, observable and sustainable change in your clients' behaviour and performance.
    • Learn how to use the Emotional Profiles Triangle (see Catherine's book) which can help clients learn to understand their typical responses to pressure and manage them more effectively.
    • Deliver real benefit to the clients' organisations.
  • Catherine will draw on her extensive case-material to illustrate how these goals can be achieved and will also engage with participants' client examples.
  • Only 8 places are available at each masterclass so early booking is advisable.
  • A Continued Professional Development certificate is available to those attending these events.

  • Feedback on previous masterclasses has been consistently excellent:

    "The content was superb, and Catherine's style is wonderfully inclusive and informative at the same time."

    "The event completely exceeded my expectations. I had been concerned about not having formal coaching training but I quickly felt that Catherine does not place all of the emphasis on specific experience or qualifications but values too the insight one can bring."

    "A fabulous course, really valuable learning and great to hear so many case-studies and examples."
