About the course

Transformational Coaching can be used to powerful effect in a wide variety of professional settings, allowing coaches to find their own niche in which to utilise and develop the extensive range of tools and techniques they will learn on this course. It is at the cutting edge of the coaching arena, moving beyond other forms of coaching which are focused on a goal attainment model based on ‘options-strategy-action’.

It is designed to enable self-actualisation, exploring an individual’s core beliefs, values and assumptions in order to gain a deeper understanding of who that person is and what they desire to become.
