Exploring Coaching and Mental Well-being

In this podcast we explored the positive impact coaching has on mental well-being with Dr Karen Howells, a sports psychologist working as a sports and fitness lecturer at the Open University

The discussion focuses on why coaching the whole person is beneficial for participant long-term welfare; why it is important for coaches to be cognisant about mental well-being; and how the Open University's 'Exploring Sport Coaching and Psychology' online course can help coaches become more knowledgeable about mental well-being.
