Coaching is often discussed as if it is a new 'profession' without adequate attention to how it has evolved, what underpins its practice or its training methods. Situating coaching in a wider social and historical context, Coaching and Mentoring: A Critical Text reveals that contemporary 'coaching theory' is more a collection of models and approaches mostly transferred from psychotherapy theory.

Coaching claims to liberate creativity but can also entrap us by individualizing social experience. This vital new book brings a fresh and critical perspective on coaching and mentoring, challenging its normative assumptions and narratives, and proposing an ethical and emancipatory approach that takes it beyond instrumentalism and individualism.

Key features:

- Accounts for how coaching has emerged and what discourses and normative practices underpin and influence contemporary coaching practice.

- Develops a meta-theory of coaching that acts as a baseline for future developments.

- Offers frames of thinking to support and guide coaching and mentoring practitioners and educators.
