About Resilience Coaching Academy

RCA has been created as an institution of special learning and training dedicated to furthering our vision of a paradigm shift in wellbeing and resilience, so that all people can access their innate wellbeing and potential to become resilient, healthy and contributing members of society.

RCA was born from iheart – a charity that has been operating for over 6 years in the wellbeing sector. Iheart developed a unique, evidence-based Resilience Framework with proven results including the publication of an academic research paper in the “Journal of Public Mental Health”. Over the past 6 years the classroom, teacher’s lounge and corporate boardroom has been the laboratory to test, improve, and refine the framework and programmes..

Together with iheart, RCA has trained over 1100 facilitators from all over the world whoa re now successfully delivering our resilience programmes and making a real difference to the lives of thousands of people.
