Our coaches

Coaches on our platform come from the best postgraduate programmes.

Accredited coach training

“I am delighted that the Henley Centre for Coaching is partnering with The Growing Coaches to provide ‘real-life’ coaching assignments and experience for many of our coaches undergoing post-graduate coaching qualifications. I am equally pleased that The Growing Coaches has been founded by a student on one of our own coaching programmes and we look forward to ‘growing together’ for many years to come.”

Jonathan Passmore
Director of the Henley Centre for Coaching and Behavioural Change

How some of our coaches have found the experience

"The platform has taken away all of the time and hassle required in finding coachees myself with its simple and easy to use site, all you need to do is upload your profile and you're all set to go! I have gained precious experience within a short period of time with some high profile Execs and helped them to unravel some of the challenges they are being faced with."

Claire Blissitt
MSc Henley

"Since joining The Growing Coaches 5 months ago I have now coached 3 individuals. The platform has given me the opportunity to work with clients with very differing life and work experiences and certainly different to the coachees I’ve had in the past. I’ve been able to put into practise many of the tools and techniques learned on the Henley Business School Masters programme and my confidence as a coach has grown enormously."

Melanie Lansbury
MSc Henley

"The Growing Coaches has been a great experience. I would highly recommend it to any coach in transition from training to practising professionally. I found the site extremely  easy to use with a simple format for my profile and my specific areas of coaching.  I was very quickly matched with a potential coachee and was able to review some details about her and her goals before moving on to the next stage and connecting. It has given me a great deal of confidence in my abilities as a coach and also bought to my attention how my background in business supports my work and rapport with executive clients. I have very much enjoyed working with my coachee and feel we have developed a great coaching relationship."

Jo Roberts
Postgraduate Cert. Barefoot Coaching

"The Growing Coaches is fantastic! It has provided the opportunity for me to develop as a coach by connecting me easily with coachees, but it is so much more than that. The way that the site is set out mirrors best practice for setting up a professional coaching engagement. This gives new coaches the opportunity to build skills in some of the operational elements of coaching as well as the clearly invaluable experience of the actual sessions. Every part of the process builds your skills. Even putting the bio together helped me to start articulating what kind of coach I wanted to advertise myself as. I can’t think of a better way to have built up my practice."

Caroline Eastland
MSc Henley

"I have had the pleasure and privilege to work with four coachees across topics such as leadership development, career progression and confidence building.  As a relatively new coach at the time, I have learned a lot from coaching in a professional environment and particularly benefited from the new experience of managing the 3 way relationship between coach, coachee and sponsor."
