SHARP Training Solutions offers  various practical training’s. SHARP Recovery Solutions and the  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 a professionally fulfilling endeavour, and SHARP Recovery Coaches and Counselors are well equipped in the theoretical and practical elements of assisting those recovering from substance and behavioural abuse. The couching is conducted by trained professionals and learners are supervised during the practical components, this is to provide 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 of 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.
