Key information

Combining neuroscience, psychology, and biology, our founder Maria Paviour developed unique coaching frameworks, and psychometric wellbeing tools – to help move people through a change curve in their life. The change curve, developed by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, is a method of helping people understand their reactions to change or upheaval.

As a NeuChem Coach, you have the ability to design collaborative solutions with both individuals and organisations. By introducing methods for coping with stress, anxiety, and low mood, you are able to improve overall levels of wellbeing and engagement – in and out of the workplace. Which, according to Thriving at Work government report, as well as our own empirical evidence, has been proven to drive a significant return on investment.

This course can stand alone – or once qualified you can apply your learning to our ILM Level 7 Diploma in Coaching and Mentoring course.
