Frequently Asked Questions



Psychology has a key role to play in coaching. You will acquire specialist knowledge and understanding of the various psychological theories which underpin modern coaching practice. 


Our motto is “Beware the man of one book” - we do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to coaching. We believe that coaches are more effective if they have access to a wide range of coaching methodologies and have the behavioural flexibility to adapt to context and the client’s particular needs. Our course will give you a rich variety of coaching strategies, idea, tools and techniques and the freedom to develop your own individual coaching style.
