Recovery Coaching

The ability to build trust and support you unconditionally is paramount in building and maintaining an effective working relationship as a recovery coach. The goal is to inspire change and provide you with the tools to make it happen. This can be achieved by getting to know who you really are, what makes you tick, maximising available resources and connecting you with a support network.

As a recovery coach we will spend time with you, and the people important to you to get to know you and understand your needs. We will help you discover different services and supports that are available to you and how these can help you create a meaningful life.

What works for one person may not for another and it is important to have a shared vision free from judgement and be able to see the whole picture together.

Everybody’s experience of recovery is unique, and it will mean different things to different people. We will work with you to understand or create your own definition of recovery.

At Dynamic Ability we use a strengths-based approach which acknowledges that recovery is not about a cure but rather, about supporting people to live the life they choose. It is about creating a meaningful life WITH OR WITHOUT the presence of mental health issues. 



1. Build capacity and resilience.

Providing coaching and mentoring to increase recovery skills and personal capacity. This may include working with you around your strengths, motivation, resilience and decision-making skills.


2. Identify, plan, design and coordinate supports.

Supporting you with goal setting and recovery planning, ensuring you are at the centre of the process. Facilitating engagement with NDIS, mainstream, community and informal supports as well as supporting you with plan implementation.

3. Work collaboratively with participants, families, carers and other services.

Collaborating with the broader system of supports to ensure they are recovery oriented, person centred and are appropriate for your needs and wishes.

4. Maintain engagement.

Due to the fluctuating nature of mental illness, you may require periods of increased support needs require assistance with crisis management. Our recovery coach will work with you to plan for these periods of time and support you to maintain engagement with the supports that are most important to you.


Communication is key and a great recovery coach will be able to communicate with you effectively to achieve positive outcomes. They understand that communication must go both ways and will be there to listen to you.


Trust is a big deal in any working relationship, you should be able to have the confidence to trust and work together to achieve a common goal.


The practical know-how on how to achieve your goals is essential. This includes knowledge of available services and support options, the NDIS system, mental health diagnosis and how that affects daily living. 

Creativity and openness are qualities which we believe set a good recovery coach apart from the rest. Your recovery journey is unique and when approached with an open mind the possibilities are endless...
