What we're about

Welcome to Yannick's Coaching Lab!

Please put your lab coats on and join us every 1st Tuesday of the month to observe a live coaching demonstration, discuss it afterwards together with the coach and client, and then experiment and grow as we breakout into triads.

Following a decade of training, coaching and superviison experience, "Yannick's Coaching Lab" was born from the feedback that we often get from training weekends and coaching events. Beginners as well as seasoned coaches tend to tell us that the most valuable part of the learning came from observing the fishbowls, from practicnig with each other and the reflective discussions amongst the group. And since it's difficult to find quality coaching on YouTube and live training events are usually incredibly expensive, we decided to create an event dedicated to all the best bits and for an affordable price.

We want to bring people together who are committed to their learning, growth and who love to talk about coaching. If you're a coach who likes to experiment with something new and explore how other people are coaching, you're at the right address!

In Yannick's Coaching Lab you will witness a 45-minute coaching session, afterwards we'll debrief and discuss as a group for 30min and you'll get to ask the coach questions about why chose certain interventions, why they asked particular questions or stayed silent during a critical moment, followed by a chance to practice in triads (coach, practice client and an observer) as to hone your skills and receive some feedback on your coaching (or indeed some free coaching for yourself).

Here's a video invitation by your host, Yannick Jacob, Positive Existential Coach, Supervisor, Trainer and former Programme Leader of the MSc Coaching Psychology at the University of East London: https://youtu.be/3obaA9HFWSw

See you at the next Lab :)

PS: Since the pandemic has hit just as we were scheduled to launch, all our Coaching Labs have been virtual with great success.

PPS: Many coaches get their tickets via Eventbrite, so rest assured there'll be a crowd

PPPS: Non-coaches, curious about what's going on under the hood or keen to experience a coaching session, are more than welcome!

Yannick's Coaching Lab - with Liz Goodchild

Online event

£20.00

You'll get to learn from interesting and experienced practitioners, connect with other coaches and generally have some fun and experiment in a safe and confidential environment. FEATURED COACH This month we welcome the wonderful Liz Goodchild to the Lab. I've loved Liz's authentic, warm, reflective and person-centred style from the moment I met her. I also love that she swears a fair bit! :) Her writing has inspired me and she's also really smashed the business side of coaching. I can't wait to get an insight into Liz's coaching style in action and really look forward to the session. BIO Here's an excerpt from Liz's website https://www.lizgoodchild.co.uk/life-coach-about/ "I’ve been a certified coach since 2013, running a full-time coaching practice via Skype. I’ve worked with hundreds of people over this time, from all walks of life, helping them to shake their lives up and feel more bolder, excited, confident and content. I get frustrated that we live in a world where asking for help, or admitting we haven’t got it all figured out, is seen as self-indulgent or fucked up, when in fact, I know the exact opposite to be true. And it’s this belief that forms the foundation of my writing and coaching approach. I’m honest and say it as it is. With kindness and a dash of kick-up-the-ass. I work with both women and men. I’m a certified coach, and yet beyond the qualifications nailed to my wall, I’ve learned how to help other people lead better lives through the lessons I’ve learned by living my own. From wanting to stick pencils in my eyes while sitting at the desk of my 9-5 in a corporate career that stifled me, to running ultra-marathons, to moving to a country I didn’t speak the language of—with a 4 month old baby in tow—I know that daily life can be fucking hard. But I also know that we can do hard things. My mum died when I was 18. She chose to end her life and her death was a huge wake-up call for me. It hit me—square in the heart—that we all get to choose who we are and how we live. As for me? I choose to live simply and brave, gravitating towards everything that nudges me towards personal and physical growth, and most importantly, that lets me just be me."

Yannick's Coaching Lab - with Natalie Lancer PhD

Online event

£20.00

WELCOME TO THE COACHING LAB Every 1st Tuesday of the month we get together to observe a live 45min coaching demo, followed by a debrief and discussion together with the coach and client, and a chance to practice and experiment in triads in breakout rooms afterwards. You'll get to learn from interesting and experienced practitioners, connect with other coaches and generally have some fun and experiment in a safe and confidential environment. FEATURED COACH This month we welcome Dr. Natalie Lancer to the Lab. Natalie is a fellow existential coach, has been teaching coaching skills at Masters level and she's co-authored the 2nd edition of Techniques for Coaching and Mentoring together with coaching heavy-weights David Clutterbuck and David Megginson. She now specialises in coaching PhD students and other clients with BIG projects on their hands. I've been running into Natalie at various conferences over the years and am excited to get to see her coach up close and personal today. NATALIE SAYS: "I am an existential coach and an accredited member of the Association for Coaching. I started my professional career as a secondary school teacher and worked in schools with diverse students in deprived areas with children who had various emotional and behavioural difficulties. I now coach people using an existential approach. My client groups are mainly young people between the ages of 16 and 25 and a diverse range of people who feel stuck on their big projects (such as PhDs!). My latest book focuses on coaching techniques: Lancer, N., Clutterbuck, D. and Megginson, D. (2016). Techniques for coaching and mentoring (2nd edn). Oxford: Routledge and I have published widely, most recently (2018) in the BPS International Coaching Psychology Review: ‘One-to-one coaching as a catalyst for personal development: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis of coaching undergraduates at a UK university’. I am the Honorary Secretary of the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology. My PhD research explored how undergraduates experience personal growth at university whilst having coaching sessions throughout one or two academic years. I supervise Master’s and PhD students at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling."
