A very rewarding and insightful programme, I would thoroughly recommend it.


'having been a psychotherapist for several years I was interested but skeptical about coaching; I found the Kerslake Company on-line and from my initial contact right through to qualifying was a very positive experience. Each of the trainers was very experienced and led sessions with a healthy mix of humanity and professionalism. I found all the trainers to be skilled in their unique and personal coaching styles and each exuding her own brand of competence and natural confidence. The training and the welcoming warmth creating by the Kerslake company had a powerful impact - I qualified feeling very motivated and sufficiently competent to apply my newly acquired coaching skills; I feel thoroughly trained and have been given great foundations to work from as a coach. I have had continued contact and support from the Kerslake Company long after qualifying, and my coaching work has continued to expand steadily'. 

It was truly a great experience for me - I'm really grateful. 

Best wishes. Brian McMinn, UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, MA and MSc qualified
