For who are these trainings?

What is systemic coaching?

Many people from diverse backgrounds are seeking assistance to connect into holistic health and wellness, free of harmful and limiting behaviours. Therefore, Systemic Coaching is an empowering intervention to support individuals, families, groups, teams, organisations, and communities that are challenged with systemic unwellness.

Through the use of systemic coaching we are able to assist in the transformation and growth of those seeking sustainable wellness in their personal and professional lives. As a coach you will be able to support your clients in developing a lifestyle that fits their personal and professional needs, wants, values, preferences and goals.

What is the focus?


The basis of the systemic coaching model is about learning to have a coaching conversation using powerful questions, developing strong listening skills, understanding someone’s needs, wants, and values, and excavating meaning and purpose. Learning coaching skills and techniques is part of this topic.


Systemic coaching takes place along a series of continuums addressing substance use, relationships, and someone’s overall emotional, social, mental, physical, and spiritual wellness. Or behaviours, roles, processes, and overall wellness are all addressed via the use of continuums.


The system addresses the interplay between the different role players and stakeholders in a person’s personal and professional lives. The nature of the work means that working systemically with different individuals creates better connection and understanding, leading to better long-term outcomes.
