The COCLP programme has been an invaluable and transformative experience that has touched every area of my life. Through this programme, I have developed an acute awareness and understanding of myself, and how I view myself, others, and the world. I have become more reflective, flexibile, adaptable, agile and resilient.
Being able to make positive shifts and being my own resourceful self, enables me take effective action to take care of what is important to me and bring about richer possibilities in my life. The programme has helped me to develop and establish the offer I want to be as a coach. It is a joy to see the positive impact the ontological coaching approach has on my client’s ability to bring about the change that they desire for their own lives. For me, this bears a strong testament to the invaluable power of the Ontological work..
Alan and Karen throughout the programme, displayed the qualities of rigour, humility, respect, care, and generosity, an example I aim to emulate in my journey as a coach.
Learning to become a new observer has opened up new and unimagined ways for me to live my life more happily, effectively and meaningfully. As a coach I believe that I now offer my clients a powerful learning experience which enables them to harness their inner resources, life and work experience – their way of being – to identify and make shifts they desire in order to enhance their quality of life.
The programme has deepened my practice as a coach, significantly contributing to my skills, awareness and effectiveness as a mediator and facilitator. At a personal level, it has given me much greater insight into my own patterns of or, and more importantly, choices I can make that support greater well-being and effectiveness through how I am in my language, emotions, and body.
I had been coaching for 15 years, and yet the value I gained from the 18 month program was profound and transformational. I learned a great deal about my own way of being. Adding ontological elements to my coaching methodology has deepened my ability to serve my clients and has led to transformational changes in their lives, and mine.
The Ontological Coaching programme was a deeply personal experience for me, far beyond just a professional accreditation. It helped me notice the stories I have been living in and gave me practical ways to make changes in my life. It also supported me in shaping my professional offer to the world as a coach, consultant and facilitator.
