This page contains Self-Coaching Resources that answer, in concise and plain English, a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) during coaching ... or a question that should be asked during coaching.

These Resources are intended to provide some essential information and complement coaching.  They are not intended to replace the need for coaching as circumstances will vary between different people.

"As a consultant in the NHS with a responsibility for the wellbeing of a large group of junior doctors,
I have found these a very helpful resource to signpost people to and have no doubt they will find them useful."     

Mr Jonny Rust, Consultant in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, University Hospital Southampton UK
