Confidence for Change Coaching Programme

Confidence for Change is Illuminate’s very own flexible training course that can include one to one personal coaching.


Created and developed by Sam and Maria to really build confidence, strengthen self-belief and bring about fundamental positive change in participants' lives.


This unique course is currently four days, one day a week. It delivers outcomes of increased self-confidence, motivation and resilience, by gently creating fundamental psychological change.


It can also include coaching for each participant. For example, a three day course followed by two hours of coaching for each participant at one hour per week. Followed up by a final development day for action planning and celebrations.


The course content covers assertive communication techniques, managing fear and anxiety, building resilience, overcoming resistance and procrastination, values and beliefs, drivers and motivation. Culminating in establishing a clear way forward with a plan of action. 


We ensure our courses and workshops are relaxed, informal and jargon free. We do not use role-play and no one is put on the spot or asked to do a presentation. 


Often participants feel isolated and we help improve this by building a community of peer support within a course. Beneficiaries make new connections quickly on Confidence for Change and through DIY Confidence.


Everyone we have worked or is interested in our work is invited to DIY Confidence. It's an informal regular meeting as well as a learning hub, as we invite a guest speaker to each meeting.


We have many years’ experience working with people from a wide range of diverse backgrounds. So we understand it takes alot of will power to walk through the door on day one!

A warm welcome and supportive environment is our priority, this shows in our high retention rates and feedback.
