Sharp Recovery Coach & Counsellor Training Solutions
SHARP and Ubuntu Addiction Community Trust (U-ACT ) in association with the Foundation of Recovery Coaching (UK) offer a choice of training solutions for people who are passionate and driven to work in the field of recovery. Working in this area is a challenging and professionally fulfilling endeavour and SHARP Recovery Coaches and Counsellors are well equipped in the theoretical and practical elements of assisting those recovering from substance and behavioural abuse. The training is conducted by trained professionals and learners are supervised during the practical components, so that they receive the support and mentoring that ensures that they are assisting clients to the best of their ability. The learning process is a professionally empowering experience for those who choose this line of work, and there is a strong element of personal development in the coaching and counselling modules. The Recovery Coaching course consists of three modules which ultimately result in the qualification of Master Coach, and includes the following:
• 100 hours of coaching, 20 of which are personal coaching for the enrolled learners; • A case study; • A write-up of self-reflection; • An online exam (recognised by the European Recovery Coaching Certification Board). In comparison to traditional addiction counselling and therapy, coaching emphasises the need for clients to move forward in their recovery. They are empowered to use new skills, tools and cognitive behaviours to move from where they are at the end a treatment programme, to where they envision their lives to be in the future. The goal of the recovery coach training program is that it will achieve SETA Level 7 accreditation in the near future. Topics covered in the modules include: • Recovery coaching within the wellness paradigm; • Understanding addiction and its common causes; • Recovery coaching theories, models and tools; • Communication and adult-learning theories and techniques; • Exploring the essential aspects of our humanity: somatic, emotional, mental, spiritual, interpersonal, and self; • Understanding ego states and states of consciousness and introductory knowledge of the Enneagram as a typology tool.
The Counsellor Course
Consists of three modules, employs practical counselling and learning skills and covers elements such as: • Understanding addiction; • Group therapy and family dynamics; • Trauma & psychiatrics in the addiction field; • Cognitive Behavioural Theory. There is a strong emphasis on community empowerment and upliftment in both courses as SHARP understands that there is a growing need for alternative approaches to sustainable sobriety and long-term recovery from substance and behavioural addictions.
