The Professional Coaching Course, offered in partnership with New Ventures West, is a rare opportunity to journey with a supportive community into what it means to be human.
Graduates of the programme emerge having cultivated the rigour, wisdom and compassion of a coach.
The programme is comprehensive and one year long. It provides everything necessary for you to become a skilled coach and is fully accredited by the International Coach Federation.
As well as being a qualification, it is an invitation onto a transformative journey. It invites you into a deeper way of being in the world in which you are more able to step into new possibilities. It also invites you to embody the qualities and skills that allow you support others in their own lifelong development.
Personal and experiential, the PCC combines intensive in-person taught sessions, online learning in small groups, one-to-one supervision, ongoing reflective practices and working with your own clients.
You will learn how to practice the methodology of integral development coaching. The teaching is always in a group no larger than 20 to ensure the depth of your experience. Our teaching weaves a tapestry of sources from poetry to music, nature to neuroscience, psychology to spirituality. We learn and teach in a way that draws upon the wisdom of the body and responds to the real world.
Year after year, our students tell us that the PCC changes lives for the better - both your own, the people you’ll coach during the year, and in your wider life.
