We're glad you enjoyed the experience of the training and the content that was covered. It was a pleasure to have you in the group. Lou Ann Diaz D.Lou Ann Diaz D. ★★★★★ I highly recommend Institute of Coaching Studies. At the time of my course, Marion was the sole instructor.From the very beginning, she set an atmosphere of trust, support, and professionalism while providing first class instruction. In addition, she consistently made each online class relevant, personable as well as a captivating experience. With an outstanding ability at giving clear, constructive, and supportive feedback Marion made the coaching certification course a highly motivating learning experience allowing me to finish the course feeling very well equipped as well as confident in my skills as a new coach. Since completing the course, I have had the opportunity to communicate with Jessica and Flavia through our coach community and find both very approachable and supportive. Thank you all!Response from the ownerHi Lou Ann,Thank you very much for your feedback. We're delighted you had a good experience with us and that the training gave you the confidence to coach others. It was a delight to have you in the group and to see you grow as a coach. We also want to give you a big thanks for contributing to the coaching community the way you do and for sharing resources with your peers. Thank YOU Lou Ann! Mark A.Mark A. ★★★★★ Perhaps the most impactful personal growth I've experienced in years.After extensive research I chose the Certificate in Professional Coaching programme from the Institute of Coaching Studies because the method of delivery of the course best fitted my needs; small class sizes with the learning and practice delivered over the right timescale...The learning experience was intense: consistently challenging my comfort zone in different ways in a safe, supportive environment. Jessica was a fantastic coach and educator who role-modeled everything she was teaching throughout the course. Seeing & experiencing skills and behaviours role-modeled is even more valuable than the excellent materials.I have no reservations in recommending the Institute to anyone who wants to help others through coaching and is ready to step out of their comfort-zone and grow.Response from the ownerThank you Mark for the recommendation. We are thrilled you had a good experience and that the training stretched your comfort zone in a positive way. It was truly a pleasure for us to see you grow as a coach. Thank you for your trust and congrats again on completing the programme! Diana M.Diana M. ★★★★★ It was an absolute pleasure to do the professional coaching skills programme with Institute of Coaching Studies. It took me some time when selecting the course and I could not have made a better choice to start my path as a coach with a professional like Marion.Response from the ownerDiana, thank you so much for your review. It was a delight to partner with you and to see you grow as a coach. Thank you for your trust and for being such a great learner. Robin G.Robin G. ★★★★★ Taking the ICF accredited course at The Institute of Coaching Studies was a significant event in my career. By expanding my skill base outside pure therapy into coaching taught me techniques I now employ throughout my practice. Simultaneously fascinating, challenging and rewarding, I learnt all I needed and more for my application to the ICF for accreditation. Marion teaches, mentors and coaches her students in an engaging way that makes me want to pursue my coaching development with her Institute with the next level programme. I also have to say that the other people on the course were really great and I learnt a lot from them too.Response from the ownerHi Robin,Thank you for your kind feedback. It's lovely to hear you learned so much and enjoyed the group you were a part of. It was great to hear your perspective as a therapist during the programme and to see you grow in your coaching role too. Best of luck for the ICF accreditation! NickNick ★★★★★ I opted for both the Professional Skills Certification and Advanced Diploma and I couldn’t be happier with my experience.The small classes made it easy to connect with others in the group plus this allowed enough time to discuss the various theories, tools and foundations for a solid understanding.As for content, the included handbooks were clear, concise and organised. Other big pluses included having access to resources online and a dedicated network for other students to continue making connections, ask questions and share content beyond the course.Marion, who facilitated the classes, is incredibly knowledgeable and created a warm but engaging atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to get involved. Her insightful feedback has been invaluable for my growth as a coach.The course overall has not only blown my mind with the possibilities of coaching but it’s also been a wonderful personal journey of discovery about myself too.I would highly recommend, not only if you want to become an accredited coach, but if you want to learn more about yourself, how to connect with others and practice effective communication, as examples.I not only have the confidence to begin my career as a coach but have access to an array of tools and wonderful connections to help in my growth as a person.Response from the ownerHi Nick, Thank you for the lovely review and for sharing your professional and personal journey with us. It was a pleasure to have you in both modules, your input contributed greatly to the learning experience. We're glad the diploma not only supported your coaching development, but also your personal growth. Kelly L.Kelly L. ★★★★★ I was looking for a professional coaching training and I made the right decision by choosing this one among all the other online. Marion is very knowledgeable and kind. Her teaching goes step by step to make you feel more and more confident in coaching. The coaching training (via Zoom) is a combination of learning the coaching principles and practice with others.

Marion Tilly is a wonderfully patient and knowledgeable coach, her model for teaching is thorough and easy to navigate. As well as useful guidance on the ICF there are plenty of tools to study that make wonderful resources. The live sessions work particularly well as they are straight forward with structured content and offer a full explanation of how to use the tools and how ICF coaching works. I especially enjoyed working in small interactive groups learning by sharing information, asking questions and testing knowledge gained through observed coaching. I would totally recommend this course to anyone looking to up level their qualifications in this area. I'm sad to finish working together but very much looking forward to signing up for Marion's supervision services soon!Response from the ownerThank you for your feedback Jenny! We are glad you found the tools we shared in our classes useful and that you liked the way the course was set up. Looking forward to seeing you in supervision! js_loader
