“The Bailey Balfour team were professional, willing to share their experiences and I received valuable, nurturing and insightful feedback all the way through the program. I have also developed some really strong friendships with my classmates and the opportunities to practice in regular weekly mentoring sessions was an invaluable opportunity to practice my skills.”

– Andrew Parker

Founder and Principal Consultant, Wasabi Consulting

‘I really appreciated the programmes’ focus on the development of skills such as self-awareness (during and outside of coaching sessions), presence, active listening, and attentiveness to one’s intuitions.

This is in addition to the basic frameworks, tools, techniques, coaching communication styles and approaches, and ethical considerations that are important to know as a new coach.’

– Samantha Whetstone

Professional Coach, Citrinitas Coaching

“Coaching has been hugely beneficial over my career. The insights, knowledge and skills I have gained as a client and a coach have ignited my courage to change focus and direction twice.

As a client, coaching provided a safe space and a structure to review my career, understand my values, strengths and interests, recognise the size of the gap, and make significant changes to move into more rewarding career and work.
