Testimonials

"The most profound and authentic statement I can make about Barefoot coaching is that my business would be simply less successful, less capable and less able to process change / opportunity without the refined perspectives we now have. I am unashamed to also state the same things about elements of my personal life, which have been a very pleasing area of development. Combine this with unbeatable value, top quality customer experience and a whole new business network - you could say myself and my colleagues are satisfied on a superlative level."

Gary Cole

Managing Director and the company is Archipelo Ltd

“Barefoot are so clear on what they stand for that, when you stand for the same things, you’re naturally drawn to them. They take time and care in making sure the development you choose to do with them is right for your needs – information from open days, observing a day of the course, conversations with previous Barefooters and conversations with the team. I can’t rate them highly enough.”

Helen Amery

Executive Coach, Wild Fig Solutions Ltd

"The Barefoot Coaching PG Cert is one of the most enlivening, enriching and practical post-graduate training courses I’ve attended. Structurally comprehensive and well thought-through, the tutors are warm, knowledgeable, and when needed challenging. As a business leader and a coach, the acquired skills have proved invaluable on a daily basis. I use them constantly."

“Having used the services of Barefoot Coaching for 8 years as both an individual student and a corporate client officer I have no hesitation in giving them my highest recommendation. Kim Morgan is one of those rare, special individuals who combine a genuine depth of expertise in her field with the warm, rich humanity of someone who lives life fully honestly. This ethos has spread to her staff, those she attracts to work with her, and her former students. Kim's inspiring vision positions coaching beyond a mere technique as a whole, integrated way of relating to other human beings from a position of deep respect for the other's potential.  Barefoot invites new coaches to explore many approaches to coaching before encouraging them to discover their own unique contribution to the field. The professional grounding Barefoot offer you as coach is more valuable than a single model basis to coaching typical of some other providers.  Barefoot's workshop days, learning materials, guest speakers, etc. are all excellent, not because of some dry chasing of market demand, but because Kim and her team have a sincere mission to help  you become the best coach you can be.”

“Barefoot is a brilliant organisation. The PG Cert in Business and Personal Coaching is an essential development experience for the modern coach. It brings together the psychology behind coaching, a bag full of tools and models, and the insights of a group of highly experienced tutors, operating from different perspectives in many different areas of the coaching “industry”. All of this is pulled together by Kim Morgan who is a great coach, true entrepreneur and all-round fabulous human being.”

“Not only were the Barefoot course presentation and materials of very high quality, the administrative support was excellent, as was the availability and quality of my course mentor.”

Rachael Ward

Consultant, Personal and Professional Development Coach

“I thought I was a coach... until I came to Barefoot. I finished this programme in 2015 and it was a game changer for me. Coaching is much more than what I was doing as an HR Director and I now feel equipped to go solo as an independent leadership coach. The programme was well structured with a comprehensive manual of notes both in hard copy and electronic format which I will use for years to come. My cohort developed a life of its own, ably supported by the Barefoot team for supervision and essay critique for the University of Chester qualification if we want to take it. The trainers are real people who’ve been there and done it and they bring their experience out at every opportunity, using imaginative exercises and running at a good pace. We are all still in touch through the alumni network on LinkedIn.  Highly recommended.”

Executive Coach, Face HR Ltd

“The Barefoot training course gave me the motivation and confidence to achieve the PG Certificate in Business and Personal Coaching with distinction within a year of starting the course. The honest and authentic style of tuition with a balance of theoretical and practical learning, has really challenged and helped me to coach to the very best of my ability and with integrity.  This has enabled me to continually develop my coaching skills with reassurance and confidence. I have since continued to enjoy the ongoing support of the Barefoot alumni network and have regularly attended Barefoot annual conferences, CPD and supervision sessions.  I have also attended the Barefoot Team Coaching training course. Working and sharing experiences with like-minded people in a genuinely supportive and professional group, which is also inspirational, fun and friendly, is fantastic.”

Laura Machin

Career Consultant, Business and Personal Coach, New Light Coaching

“I undertook the Barefoot Postgraduate Certificate in Business and Personal Coaching to support my change in business direction. The whole experience was fantastic. The quality of the teaching, the knowledge of the tutors and the support given during the programme (both taught elements and throughout the essay writing process) was excellent, professional and friendly, making the learning experience enjoyable. The process of gaining my postgrad was challenging but with the support of Kim and the team at Barefoot, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. As 'one of Barefoot's alumni' you are always welcome into the office for a catch up and the support continues once you have achieved your qualification. Thanks Kim and the team -  it was an absolute pleasure doing my postgrad cert with you.”

“I have worked with Barefoot over the last ten years in various roles and organisations. Barefoot Coaching provides excellent coaching courses which I have found to be vital in supporting and developing my teams working in the NHS today. I have enabled several members of my teams to undertake the courses over the years so that we can develop a coaching culture within our management teams. Barefoot are in my opinion professional, enthusiastic, supportive, flexible and motivating. I would endorse their application to work with other health organisations.”
