Wellbeing Coaching Initiative

Summary of idea

A successful funding application will activate the idea of the Wellbeing Coaching Initiative, to bring together users in the South East of Caithness to experience and benefit from a collection of wellbeing offerings depending on accessed levels of needs. A pre-session questionnaire will be given to assess where the users are currently; physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. During the session, the Coach will devise a map for the users desired outcome in all areas of life, and set about achieving these outcomes.

In these 1.5hour long sessions, together users will use life coaching tools to set some realistic achievable goals that will have them excited and looking forward to the future. With targets in mind, the Coach will explore creative and mindfulness exercises that are known to boost feelings of wellbeing. A focus will look at practical elements that users can use to support their wellbeing, and implement tools to support mental health. Offerings of Colour Therapy will be available to assist the users' journey, if they feel that it would benefit.

There are currently 265 users who benefit from our organisation and its services, 103 of which are male and 162 are female. An intergenerational age range who would benefit from this project.

Safety and wellbeing including mental health is covered in this initiative, making sure that everyone in the South East of Caithness has the chance to lead safe, healthy and active lives. Having users attending will not only benefit from the social and wellbeing impact, but the advantage of coming into a nice warm and cosy environment, helping to reduce their own electric and heating. Our 'linger longer' focus will be offered as part of the process.
