Bounceback Coaching

BounceBack® Coaching

A trained BounceBack® coach will help participants learn skills to improve their mental health in up to six telephone sessions over three to six months. The coach is there to help motivate and support individuals as they work through a series of CBT workbooks that are personalized to their needs.

While BounceBack® coaches are working with participants on their individual workbooks, they remain primarily under your care. The coaches will inform you if your clients have been accepted into the program and will provide you with information on their progress. They will also notify you if your clients are identified as at risk of suicide during any of the routine risk assessments completed during every telephone session.

Because coaches are not clinicians, they don’t provide counselling. Coaches are extensively trained by the clinical psychologists in the delivery of the BounceBack® program. They also receive ongoing support from the clinical psychologists, who are responsible for making clinical decisions around eligibility and next steps at any time a participant discloses they are at risk of suicide.

Coaching + workbooks are available in English, French, Mandarin, Cantonese or Punjabi.

“Easily and quickly accessible; for a busy family practitioner having someone who can work with CBT is great.”

BC Secondary School Counsellor
“As a GP we frequently see patients who present symptoms of anxiety and depression. It has made a great difference to my practice to be able to refer these patients to BounceBack® for some cognitive training rather than reaching for my prescription pad.”
