Course Trainers

All of our trainers are ICF credentialed and remain actively coaching with their own private practices. This ensures that they bring a rich depth of experience in their work which they can draw upon and share with you on your learning journey.

They are also each unique in their approach and bring their particular expertise to bear on the Accredited Diploma in Transformational Coaching, whether that’s in specific modes of psychological practice or their own style as a coach.

A common saying in coaching goes, who you are is how you coach. It’s true and that’s why we ensure you gain training from each of these exceptional coaches across the modules, so you receive a balance of approaches and ideas to help you grow as a coach.
