The Resilience Coaching Toolkit


Practical self-management exercises for professionals working to enhance the well-being of clients

The Resilience Coaching Toolkit is a flexible training pack aimed to increase people’s awareness of resilience and self-management approaches.



Psychological resilience could be defined as an individual’s ability to successfully adapt to life in the face of adverse conditions. Resilient people don’t dwell on failures – they acknowledge the situation, find strength to embrace emotional difficulties and move on.

This flexible training pack is designed to be used in one-to-one sessions as well as for group work. It teaches the Resilience Coaching Model, a non-directive approach whereby the facilitator encourages the learner(s) in the proactive self-management of resilience.

Using this proactive approach, learners will be able to:
• make a conscious decision to shape a resilient lifestyle
• assume responsibility for the quality of their life
• make changes to enhance their resilience
• understand the difference between what they can change and what they cannot and focus their energies wisely
• develop a resilient lifestyle which will allow them to revitalize and re-energise themselves so that they can continue to thrive in the face of the demands of life.




The training pack can be used by freelance resilience coaches, mental health support workers, counsellors and psychotherapists, among others, to help those struggling with stress, anxiety and mild depression, as well as anyone looking to improve their general mental well-being.
