A comprehensive twelve-month programme that provides an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the key elements of the coaching profession.

Professional Coaching first gained prominence around the 18th century. The role of the professional coach has, however, changed dramatically over the years and has been hidden in many different forms such as spiritual guru, natural healer, counselor, mentor and manager. 

For the past 20 years professional coaching has been predominantly recognised within the sporting world, in athletics, swimming, and tennis and team sports, commonly known as the Sports Coach. 

In the last 10 years there has been an increasingly significant interest in other forms of coaching. The three main areas are within Personal Life Coaching, Business and Workplace Coaching. 

Those who embark on a personal coaching journey experience a range of emotional leanings and insights which will allow them to realise and even reach their true potential; improving their self-esteem and confidence. They can continue to move forward and succeed in all areas of their life. 

The course provides a comprehensive professional development experience that teaches participants a practical set of tools, techniques and models, and includes supervised coaching from experienced credentialed coaches. 

The DPCP programme is a highly intense development experience with eight distinct parts.
