The third week of the GROW Mental Health Recovery Community Education Programme takes place tonight (Wednesday February 19th) in the Galway City Library from 6.30pm to 7.30pm when Aisling Keane delivers a talk on “Life-Coaching”.
Aisling Keane is a qualified life coach, trained mental health peer supporter and an advocate for mental health recovery and service reform. Passionate about working with people to enhance their personal well-being and supporting them in their choices of living a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life beyond the limitation caused by their challenges.
Personal recovery is “… A deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills, and/or roles….”(William Anthony, 1993)
Aisling will be presenting a talk on what life coaching is and her beliefs in the benefits it can bring to personal recovery. She will have a clear outline of the overlapping principles between the recovery framework and those of life coaching. There will be an open discussion for people to be curious, debate and contemplate the uses of coaching for personal recovery in mental health and if it should be something provided within our services to support people on their journey.
All are welcome to attend this free event.
