We believe that coaching is a solution to many problems happening within our prisons. We have a team of 27 professional coaches, who are fully qualified and trained, with over 2,000 hours of coaching experience, including with blue-chip, global companies.
Here’s what we can tell you about coaching:
Coaching is a facilitated conversation, allowing individuals and systems/groups to find their own solutions to theirown problems.
Unlike mentoring, coaching offers no advice or guidance, as we believe that the person is the expert of their own life.
Coaching empowers people living and working in prisons, enabling self-sufficiency, fostering independence and building personal responsibility.
Coaching uses specific tools and techniques, like specific questioning and thought-provoking prompts, which can help transform lives and environments and achieve goals.
Coaching has been established as a transformative tool in healthcare, education and sporting sectors.
Mark Bixter, Hero’s Journey™ coach, says:
“There’s no doubt about it that working in the prison system is challenging, but it is always immensely rewarding. I have had the privilege to witness the true extent of my client’s positivity, resourcefulness and resilience.
It is a powerful and humbling moment when clients realise that their past does not define them and they have the power to take control of the possibilities in their future.”
