1:1 Supportive Conversation - A practical, pragmatic and structured supportive conversation drawing from therapeutic and coaching disciplines.  It is designed to create sense and order in an increasingly stressful and chaotic environment.  It delivers the ability to identify and deliver behavioural changes you can make, that have a disproportionately helpful effect on your working life.

Dr Anant Sachdev said, The ICS Collaborative has enlisted the support of a group of coaches to hold 1-1 supportive conversations with Practice GP’s, Managers, Nurses and all staff across primary care at this time as an aid to help with Covid-Stress that all health care workers are possibly feeling.  I spoke with Richard House yesterday morning to test the process.  It was more helpful than I anticipated, skilfully held and pragmatic in its approach.  They are experienced in the challenges of General Practice and speak our language “

Anonymous, “ I definitely found the conversation with Richard helpful. It felt good to have someone listen and offer an alternative point of view/advice. I would recommend the service”
