This two day course provides in-depth training in data collection, calculation, interpretation, presentation and intervention design based on the Relational Proximity Framework. In order to use these tools, which are governed by trademark and copyright, you will need to sign a licensee agreement. To ensure quality control, we require that you engage an approved supervisor for your first three assignments. 

A two day course is available, and is run according to demand: Performance depends on developing and maintaining effective relationships. RHA (Relational Health Assessment) is part of a suite of Relational Metrics tools.  Other tools assess relationships between groups and organizations. While psychometric tools help coaches and clients understand the individuals involved, coaches also need to be able to help their clients understand and adjust their relational dynamics.  RHA is designed specifically for coaches to work with individuals alone, or in pairs/groups, where there are challenges in organizational relationships.

Aims of the course

To provide coaches with a unique and innovative approach to helping difficult organizational relationships and enhancing good relationships; and to provide the classroom component of training towards full accreditation as a Relational Coach. Successful completion of the course provides access to the online RHA tool in order to complete the supervised work experience required for full accreditation.

What it covers

(1) The Relational Proximity® Framework (RPF) that underpins the RHA. (2) Practice in administering the RHA. (3) Interpreting the results using the framework and norm tables. (4) Practice at reviewing the results with individuals. (5) Using RHA alongside psychometric tools. (6) Using the RHA fairly and ethically.

Who should participate

Experienced facilitators and coaches working with individuals and teams in public, private and voluntary sectors who want to: (1) Develop more effective working relationships for themselves and their clients, (2) Pinpoint crucial areas that require attention so that they can be addressed and fixed, and (3) Deal practically with the risks and issues involved in organizational relationships.


This is achieved after successful completion of at least two applications of the tool in a live coaching context, with each of the cases written and submitted for feedback to an accredited Supervisor. It allows purchase of online materials that you can use in your own practice as a coach. it also gives you membership of the Relational Practitioner Community, which provides support and further learning opportunities, including cross-training in other Relational Metrics, and towards becoming an accredited Supervisor of Relational Coaches.
