Certificate in Professional Coaching Practice™

Professional Coaching first gained prominence around the 18th century. The role of the professional coach has, however, changed dramatically over the years and has been hidden in many different forms such as spiritual guru, natural healer, counselor, mentor and manager.

For the past 20 years professional coaching has been predominantly recognised within the sporting world, in athletics, swimming, tennis and team sports, commonly known as the Sports Coach.

In the last 10 years there has been an increasingly significant interest in other forms of coaching. The three main areas are within Personal Life Coaching, Business and Workplace Coaching.

Coaching has grown rapidly in the UK due to the ever-increasingly complex and demanding lives we lead and the reduced dependency we have on traditional forms of support. Those who have experienced Coaching are often astounded by their achievements and of their new outlook on life. They are more certain, motivated and true to themselves and able to achieve their full potential. With the achievement of their own potential comes the achievement of greater success to those around. Coaching has a knock-on effect that delivers results across a range of people. 

Those who embark on a personal coaching journey experience a range of emotional learnings and insights which will allow them to realise and even reach their true potential; improving their self- esteem and confidence. They can continue to move forward and succeed in all areas of their life
