Art in Coaching, Art in Practice Programme (in person)

Developing an art-based coaching practice

2024’s programme is 26th to 27th June 2024

Request the programme details here.

I am delighted to offer this AC CPD accredited online development programme designed for coaches who would like to start to develop an art-based approach in their coaching practice, a practice that is person-centred and transformational.

The programme is based on the ART in Coaching Framework and the Five Stages of Coaching with Art (Sheather, 2019), covering the core content within my book Coaching Beyond Words – Using Art to Deepen and Enrich Our Conversations, 2019. The programme is very experiential and reflective, enabling you to explore and discover for yourself how to coach with art in practice, manage yourself in a creative space and hold a safe place for your clients to work in this way. It gives you all the foundations for developing an art-based coaching practice.

The programme consists of:

  • Two in-person learning days
  • Co-coaching both within the programme and after the programme, and
  • A follow-up online group supervision session post the programme

This programme is also offered online with the in-person content delivered live online over four consecutive half days. Click here to find out more.

Who is the programme for?

This programme is aimed at coaches who want to explore art-based coaching as part of their practice.

You will already be a qualified coach with some coaching experience. You may already be using creative approaches in your practice, although this is not a requirement.

You do not have to be an artist or consider yourself to be creative. However, you do need to be open to exploring your own creativity so you can develop your confidence in using this approach with your clients.

It is also important to commit yourself to developing a reflective practice around your art-based practice. This is because art can take clients to deep and sometimes unexpected places. Reflective practice ensures you develop the awareness and understanding to manage the space safely for your clients, maintain coaching boundaries and adhere to coaching ethical guidelines.

CPD and accreditation

This programme has been accredited with the Association for Coaching (AC) for 14 hours of CPD under their CPD Award Scheme. The AC certificate can only be awarded through attending the whole programme.

A CPD certificate from ART in Coaching is also awarded and, where a delegate is unable to attend the full programme and is therefore not eligible for the AC CPD certificate, they will receive just the ART in Coaching certificate showing the number of CPD hours attended.
