Welcome to #LookingAfterYouToo: an individual coaching support offer for Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic staff working in the NHS
The purpose of this service is support staff to maintain their psychological wellbeing. This individually tailored coaching support will focus on proactively supporting you to process experiences, deal with difficult conversation, develop coping skills and be supported in developing practical strategies to support your health and wellbeing.
Individual health and wellbeing coaching support is available with a highly skilled and experienced coach. It might be that through a one-off conversation you have all the strategies you need to cope with your situation and stay well. Or you might find a few sessions helpful. It is all led by you.
If that sounds like the kind of support you need please fill in the details below and continue on to register for a first session. If you feel you need something else, particularly if your feel you need urgent emotional support, please access the wider NHS People website. Your coach will work with you following professional code of ethics and your conversations will be confidential. The only potential exception to this is if information is disclosed that the coach reasonably believes there is an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to you or others, in which case they will discuss a potential referral with you.
Who is it for?
Any staff member who identifies as part of our Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic workforce who is employed by the NHS or working with an NHS funded employer.
How does it work?
The sessions will be delivered virtually, preferably via a video platform, but telephone appointments are also available. Subsequent sessions will be dependent on the conversation between you and your coach. Your coach might signpost you on to further support if they think this might be helpful. You may receive follow-up emails to support you in maintaining your wellness once your coaching sessions have finished.
