About this Event

Welcome to Yannick’s Coaching Lab!

Every 1st Tuesday of the month we get together to observe a live 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.

Your host for the evening

Your host and facilitator is Yannick Jacob, professional coach, trainer and supervisor with over 10 years of experience. Yannick is a published coaching author, teaching faculty at The School of Life and former Programme Leader of the MSc Coaching Psychology at the University of East London.

Featured Coach

In January we welcome Caroline Strawson to the Lab. I’ve met Caroline when she did her Masters in Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology and since she’s graduated her coaching went from strength to strength. I’m particularly interested in her approach to working with trauma combining elements of coaching and therapy to help people overcome adversity and narcissistic abuse. Fascinating stuff and I can’t wait to see her in action.

About Caroline:

Here’s an excerpt from Caroline’s website

“My name is Caroline Strawson, and I am a no.1 bestselling author, international and multi-award-winning therapist, and coach in my field of trauma transformation specialising in PTSD, complex PTSD, narcissistic and domestic abuse.

I help you move from post-traumatic stress disorder to post-traumatic growth achieving higher-level living BECAUSE of your trauma.

I have a medical background and I am obsessed with how trauma affects the brain, mind and the body and I use a unique integration of the latest therapies such as

I am widely regarded as an expert in my area and have appeared on the national news, BBC radio, national newspapers, and magazines and appeared on multiple global podcasts.”

About the Lab:

Join us for an inside-look into the inner workings of coaching, find out how and why coaches make certain decisions and how they choose their interventions. You get to witness how the client is experiencing different coaching approaches and we hope you’ll get lots of inspiration for your own coaching practice.

After the fishbowl and discussion you’ll get a chance to work in triads (coach, client, observer) with the other attendees so that you can take your insights and ideas for a spin, experiment with some new tools and techniques or simply practice some coaching and get some valuable feedback on your work from fellow professional or curious lay clients. Talking about coaching in small groups and sharing our learning with the rest of the group afterward will help us all grow our understanding, knowledge and coaching skills.

Plan for the evening:

  • 6:30 Welcome and networking
  • 6:45 Live coaching session
  • 7:30 Debrief & group discussion
  • 8:15 Optional practice sessions in triads/breakout rooms
