What is this event about?

With challenging workplace conditions, as we respond to the pandemic, statistics have shown an increase in stress and anxiety for employees as they strive to adapt. Prolonged exposure to stress can result in mental health challenges such as burnout. Recent academic research has shone a light on a way forward for coaches to work with burnout as defined by the World Health Organization, within their competency and respectful of ethical professional boundaries.

The objective of this workshop is to inform attendees through exploring the research findings so that they may further understand and identify burnout in their clients. It will empower coaches to effectively work with clients to determine a path forward that serves their wellbeing and goals abiding by our EMCC code of ethics.

What will it cover?

Key areas

  • Understanding burnout and how it presents differently across individuals and professions.
  • Exploring academic findings.
  • Where supervision is central to the ‘burnout’ self-care of the coach and client.
  • The value of holding space to move a client forward with burnout as a theme.
  • Contracting as a tool to inform referral discussions.

Why should I attend?

The participant will be comfortable working with workplace mental health challenges such as burnout as it arises in their coaching sessions. With an increase in confidence moving the client forward with their wellbeing as a priority. It gives the attendee an opportunity to evaluate their strengths and identify opportunities to further develop skills and knowledge, through supervision and CPD, thereby, opening the doors to work with clients, where medical referral was previously the only option.
Those in a caring profession are most at risk of burnout due to their compulsions to help others. The attendees will learn how developing their practice, within sessions and through supervision, enriches their practice through
