Overview of Group Coaching – Positive Ageing Group coaching allows individuals to engage in discussions about specific aspects of their lives. Sharing experiences can serve not only as a learning opportunity but also an opportunity for participants to connect with others going through similar challenges as their own. It’s an opportunity to talk, express and share. The group coach will stimulate the discussions by asking powerful questions and also facilitate the group so that the conversations don’t become unconstructive or unsolicited. There will be 12 places only for each session and they will be filled by first come first serve basis. The sessions will be facilitated by a qualified group coach and the participants will need to sign a coaching agreement. If you think this might benefit you or someone you know, you can book a session with Reena Raj on reena@reachandconnect.net or phone her on 07491 907 766. U3A –
