“Outstanding, substantive, and focused on providing tools for success as a Coach.
The PSG Diploma in Executive & Life Coaching has been the single most significant learning experience I have ever had. When I signed up I wanted it to be stretching, challenging and learner centred. The structure, the learning methodologies used and delivery exceeded my expectations. Maureen Hewitt and the PSG team have built this into a very robust experiential learning programme and it is carefully crafted and intensive. It has increased my competency and confidence as a professional coach in my organisation and I have no hesitation is recommending PSG and this programme.
Thank you PSG”

Course Feedback

At the end of each course we always ask students to complete feedback forms. We asked the Autumn students, “What would you say to anyone thinking of taking the course?”

Here’s a few of the answers:

Do, Do, Do
Helena (Counsellor, Trainer, Teacher, Physiotherapist)

I’d recommend it without hesitation. It’s a fantastic investment – because you are able to engage at the level you’re at, everyone is valued, able to fully enjoy and benefit.
Clare (Musician)

Do it – just do it. All the challenges are worthwhile. The more you bring to it the more you will get out of it. Brilliant experience and bonding. Genuine & authentic.

Brilliant. Best course I have ever done by far!
David (Secondary School Teacher)

Go for it! If the effort is put in they will get 3 times back. The investment is fantastic & will stand to you for the rest of their lives.
Charlie  (Training Coordinator, Supervisor)

Go for it – it’s an amazing opportunity to progress on your life’s journey. Lots of surprises in the learning on an emotional level, great tools given for living and sharing whether that be on a personal or professional level. Brilliant opportunity to expand – great facilitators that speak with knowledge and clarity – they live it.
Ruth (Chartered Physiotherapist)

“Trust the process”. Have faith and give it a shot. No learning is wasted.

I read the comments on the website from previous participants, but they were just words – now I have experienced all of the learning areas & I have understood so many things that were a mystery to me. I have been given so many tools. Tools that I needed to progress as a trainer/teacher/coach.
