Relationship Coaching

Train as a Relationship Coach with our accredited, online course!

This is a comprehensive 6 module online course for people wishing to work professionally as relationship coaches, or to use coaching skills in their work with couples. It also explores the skills required to run a successful Coaching practice, from setting up business to working with clients.

I completed the course a few months ago and am already running a growing coaching practice. The course was invaluable, especially the tutor support - the tutor was so encouraging and enthusiastic,  and always happy to offer advice, even after I'd officially finished the course.
