NDIS Psychosocial Recovery Coach

What is a Psychosocial Recovery Coach?

Psychosocial recovery coaching is a relatively new field that focuses on the strengths and abilities of people who experience mental health challenges, rather than their illness or condition. It is a support available under the NDIS funding for people with a psychosocial disability.
A psychosocial recovery coach is a mental health trained professional or a person with a lived experience of mental illness. Their role is to provide practical and emotional support to individuals with mental health issues, and to help them to develop the skills and confidence they need to manage their symptoms and live a fulfilling life.
A psychosocial recovery coach can help in many ways; they can provide support with a range of activities, including goal setting, self-care, managing symptoms, developing social connections, and accessing community resources.

How can Astute Living Care’s recovery coaches help?

Goals are an important part of coaching as they allow us to see the progress that we are making. Our coaches are here to support participants on their recovery journey and to help them live a meaningful and purposeful life. Our coaches let the participants take the lead in their own goal setting as they understand that participants are experts in their own lives.

We can offer the following:

Help to develop and implement a recovery plan to help people become more independent
Get the most from the NDIS Plan
Assist with coordination of NDIS supports
Provide coaching to increase skills and capacity such as motivation, strengths, resilience, and decision-making
Connect participants with mainstream supports

Why should you choose our psychosocial recovery coaches?

We offer individualised support:

We tailor the supports to each individual’s unique circumstances, strengths, and goals. Our coaches work closely with individuals to develop a personalised recovery plan, which can help to build resilience and support recovery.

We focus on strengths and abilities:

Our psychosocial recovery coaching focuses on an individual’s strengths and abilities. This approach helps to build confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of empowerment, which are crucial to achieving long-term recovery.

Long-term recovery-based support:

We understand that having a mental illness can often strip people of their sense of identity. So, we work with participants so they can regain their confidence and live a life that is meaningful to them. We focus on achieving long-term recovery and building resilience. We also help participants to stay on track with their recovery goals and maintain their progress over time.

We collaborate:

We work with the participant and anyone else they might choose to ensure the best possible outcome. It could be family, friends, healthcare professionals, allied health clinicians, carers or even hospitals.

Strength-based approach:

Our recovery coaches use a strength-based approach to empower participants to achieve their goals. We provide practical and emotional support and help individuals to develop the skills and confidence they need to live a fulfilling life.

Our coaches are qualified and experienced:

All our coaches have at least 3 years of professional experience working with participants with a psychosocial disability. We also have recovery coaches on our team with a lived experience. This means that our coaches understand the recovery journey as they are also personally going through their own individual journeys
