Can anybody be coached? Research on acceptance and commitment coaching; is intuition in coaching judgmental?

Dr Rebecca Jones is joined by lecturers in coaching Aboodi Shabi and Sarah Leach.

The episode starts with a discussion on the topic ‘Can anyone be coached?’ followed by our ‘Spotlight on Research’ segment. It focuses on a paper by Jonathan B. Bricker and colleagues, which tests the impact of acceptance and commitment coaching on quitting smoking. The episode then finishes with the team answering a listener question: Isn’t using intuition being judgmental?
