When I decided to qualify as an executive coach, I immediately knew that I wanted to train at Tavistock Consulting. Over the years in my role as an HR Director I had got to know more about their approach having received executive coaching myself and having commissioned a piece of consultancy work from Tavistock Consulting. What differentiates them is a focus on what lies beneath the surface - what is really driving feelings and behaviours in organisations. The training programme is robust and strikes the perfect balance between theory and practice. I now feel very well equipped to progress my career as a coach.

Head of HR & Executive Coach (2014/15)

When the executive coaching course pops into mind, a smile comes to my mind. I love it: I think the group works well and is forming a nice cohesive and empathic whole. The slow-but-deep teaching style and the complementary approaches of the two teachers works well for me. I like the balance of theory and experience, a cycle of thinking-reflecting-doing-reflecting and I like it too because, so far at least, even when I’m in the hot-seat, I’ve felt safe. This is not an easy environment to create, but when it is created, it really fosters learning and higher levels of motivation.

Director of Management Consultancy practice (2013/14)

Looking back, I do think this is an excellent programme and for me, absolutely essential to bring to fruition my previous learnings. The Executive Coaching programme has really enabled me to integrate what I previously learned at the Tavistock into my practice. I would recommend it strongly to anyone who wants to apply systemic psychodynamic thinking to coaching and consultancy.
