Building Bridges Between Coaching and Psychotherapy – YANNICK JACOB – February 9th @ 6 pm to 8 pm.

Building Bridges Between Coaching and Psychotherapy

Speaker: Yannick Jacob

Many counsellors, psychotherapists and analysts are critical towards the coaching profession, and
(while arguably less so) vice versa. And while there are important ethical concerns about life coaches
overstepping lines, their limited training as well as a number of other issues, our clients have a lot to
gain from practitioners engaging in collaborative dialogue about the potential meeting points,
parallels and differences in the way that we approach our work. Our aim for this session is to
illuminate the range of what coaching may be based on various definitions from literature, the
spectrum of coaching approaches and an insight into the coaching industry, and in doing so explore
how coaches and therapists may build bridges in the interest of our clients’ wellbeing. In the process
we’ll discuss the potential value of integrative approaches to helping-by-talking and briefly introduce
the concept of positive existentialism (an integration of Positive Psychology and Existentialism).

Yannick Jacob is an Existential Coach (MA), Positive Psychologist (MSc), Coach Trainer & Supervisor (DIP) and Mediator (SPCP Dispute Resolution). He’s the Program Director of the the Accredited Certificate in Integrative Coaching at the School of Positive Transformation, for which he’s gathered many of the world’s most influential coaches, and he’s the former Programme Leader of the MSc Coaching Psychology at the University of East London.

Yannick is part of the teaching faculties at The School of Life, Animas Centre for Coaching and the International Centre for Coaching Supervision. Yannick’s love for coaching, positive existential thought and personal development is contagious and he loves to challenge people to think, learn & grow, to explore the BIG questions and to appreciate the whole spectrum of what life has to offer. As a coach Yannick partners with his clients to help them lead and navigate their lives and careers, to make big decisions and, ultimately, find ways to be happy. His long-term vision is to inspire the world to embrace their human condition in all its beautiful and challenging facets and to create a more meaningful human experience.

Yannick presents at conferences internationally and his book, An Introduction to Existential Coaching, was published by Routledge, the world’s leading academic publisher. Learn more about Yannick and his work at www.existential.coach and www.RocketSupervision.com.
