    • Education

David Britten, dual-trained therapist and coach, joins our host, Maxine Bell, for a deeper dive into what mental health and illness are, and what coaches and supervisors need to know and be able to do. David explains the difference between functional suffering, dysfunctional suffering and mental illness, and the importance of language and perspectives in shaping a holistic understanding of mental health. Emphasising the need for self-awareness and the role of supervision and supervisors, David also debunks the argument that therapy and coaching should be kept very separate. An insightful and necessary conversation that will benefit any coach or supervisor.
 
You will learn:
 
·       The three functions of supervision for coaches supporting clients' mental health: normative, formative and restorative
·       What supervisors need to know to support coaches around mental health
·       The transformative potential of integrating coaching with therapeutic elements, especially for those grappling with mental health challenges
  
 
“Supervisors need to have a theoretical understanding and an awareness of the fact that there are different ways of framing mental illness, psychological distress, different languages for it that have different connotations for, for how we practice and what we see.”
