What is Coaching Psychology?

There are various descriptions of coaching psychology. We include two short descriptions below:


Coaching Psychology, as an applied positive psychology, draws on and develops established psychological approaches, and can be understood as being the systematic application of behavioural science to the enhancement of life experience, work performance and wellbeing for individuals, groups and organisations who do not have clinically significant mental health issues or abnormal levels of distress. (See APS IGCP)


Coaching psychology is for enhancing well-being and performance in personal life and work domains underpinned by models of coaching grounded in established adult learning or psychological approaches (See BPS SGCP, adapted Grant & Palmer, 2002).
