"I can 110% recommend Ruth's coach training. It came at a perfect time for me as I was looking to branch out with the services I offered clients and it has worked out really well.

The sessions were well-timed and well-paced, with the right amount of support and feedback. I was part of a fantastic cohort of women I found the online format engaging and convenient. With lots of opportunities to work with Ruth and others on the course, as well as mentoring sessions, we were able to learn a huge amount over the seven-month duration.

If you are looking for a coaching course that really delivers and a trainer who cares, this is it!"

Natalie Trice, The Visibility Duchess
Confidence Coach and PR Mentor for Media Professionals and Small Business Owners

"When I started the program I had been working as a coach formally for more than a year and in over 20+ years as a pharmacist. During all of that time I had been using coaching and training and I really wanted to use it properly and be top of my game with it. I was lacking knowledge and confidence to go deeper with people.

The course has given me a deeper understanding of what coaching is and how I can get the best results for my clients. It has shown me this whole world that I want to explore and do even more in. The biggest thing is the confidence that I now have in terms of being able to deliver for my clients.

It is amazing how my business has developed and changed over the last six months with the help of the course and working through the challenges, thoughts and ideas with such a range of coaches has been hugely beneficial. I have really shifted to a corporate client base and it is a really interesting shift for me.

I think if you want to be a coach, work as a coach, be successful as a coach, be confident as a coach, then this is the course for you. It's unlike any training that I've ever done before, it's just great. I never worry about coaching someone now. I feel like I always know where to go. I can respond and I don't go in thinking what I am going to ask them. I can be completely curious and open to what they want to do in the session and it works: it is so much better for them and I just love it. I'm so happy to take the full joy out of it."
