The programmes combines live training in London or Edinburgh with a mix of learning methods to ensure you become a coach who’s able to work confidently with a diverse range of clients, issues and coaching styles to create profound and lasting change in people’s lives or workplaces.

With exceptional accreditation from the International Coach Federation and Association for Coaching, this course will ensure you can work as a coach both in the UK and around the world.

Philosophically, we believe that coaching is about more than simply goal achievement. Although goals are often an important aspect of coaching, at its best coaching is is an exploration of beliefs, values, attitudes, assumptions and behaviours – what we term the person’s paradigm. This widening of enquiry to a client’s underlying mental model sets Animas apart as a transformational coaching school. Personal change is rarely linear or simple. It is complex, uncertain and full of possibility for new responses and Animas is leading the way in a style of coaching that’s responsive to that reality.
