Certificate in Business & Life Coaching – Accredited Certificate in Coach Training (ACCT)
– Live – Interactive – Online
An Award-Winning and internationally recognised accredited coach training course incorporating the NLP Foundation Diploma will provide you with all the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to build a vibrant Coaching Practice to help people make lasting change.
An experienced coach provides support, structure and encouragement to help their clients fulfil their true potential, make the most of their lives and move forward in the areas which they want to change, for example, their relationships, careers, fitness, work-life balance and self-confidence.
By observation, listening and questioning, a coach explores their client’s current situation, values and beliefs. They work with them to find ways in which they might achieve their aims and help them to set appropriate goals in their personal lives or in their career.
By remaining supportive and non-judgmental, coaches encourage clients to maintain motivation, commitment and to find ways of overcoming barriers and setbacks in their personal and professional lives.

What is Coaching Supervision?
Coaching supervision is a formal and protected time for facilitating in-depth reflection for coaches to discuss their work with someone who is experienced as a Coach. Supervision offers a confidential framework within a collaborative working relationship in which the practice, tasks, process and challenges of the development of the coach and the actual coaching work can be explored.
The primary aim of supervision is to enable the coach to gain ethical competence, confidence and creativity so as to ensure the best possible service to the coaching client.
Supervision is not a ‘policing’ role, but rather a trusting and collegiate professional relationship enabling coaches to reflect on their practice, develop a deeper understanding of their practice and gives the opportunity to receive guidance and support from experienced coach supervisors.
The good news is that the process of support and development for our students will not end when they qualify and leave the training programme, we will continue to offer additional opportunities for professional CPD and Supervision, both with a group or one to one as required.
