The teleclasses were massively useful. I've learned how to turn a passion into a career. Fascinating people, thought provoking, inspirational and reassuring. The PCA coaching manual will be my bible for my future as a life coach. I am excited and expectant for the future.

An excellent course that I would recommend to others - I've loved every minute. I really enjoyed the interaction with my fellow trainee coaches and exploring the world of coaching. The trainers provided me with windows into other worlds that I had not come across before.

Thank you for this amazing experience and I am glad that I am one of the first graduate from a school of thought which is ``pure``. I have very much enjoyed every session as well and I will really miss those Saturdays. If you, right there, read these sentences? It means it is already calling you ..you just need to go with it, with an open mind and heart!

The experiential way of learning works really well. Informative, energy boosting and life enhancing - it will benefit you as an individual as well as a life coach! It's been so beneficial sharing everyone's experiences.

After reaching a crossroads in my life, I looked to coaching and signed up on Carole Ann's Pure Coaching Academy to learn how to be a life coach. The course was above and beyond what I imagined. Carole Ann's friendly and accessible manner and approach brought to life the fantastic coaching practices we were learning through open and honest sharing and learning resulting in a very close-knit group encouraging each other in their journeys. The scope of the course was wide, covering the key areas needed to forge our own coaching paths with each topic explored in good time and detail, all supported by easy to understand and engaging topic notes as well as a mid-week group call. For me, the course has opened up a new chapter in my life which I am very much enjoying exploring and having the constant support and encouragement from Carole Ann and Lou has made my transition into being a life coach a less scary one. The course can be life changing and eye opening which, for me, I will be ever grateful for.

I would like to thank the Pure Coaching Academy for helping me to find the confidence and self-belief that I can pursue my dreams and what I have always felt I was born to do. The experiential learning is worth every penny, plus the knowledge and skills I have developed over the 8 weeks were far more than I expected. I came from a place of knowing a lot of theory behind coaching but this course taught me to apply this in practice. I have now launched my coaching practice with paying satisfied clients due to being on this course. Thank you so much again.

The Pure Coaching Academy is truly life changing. I came to the course to learn new skills and also, to work on myself in the process of becoming a life coach. I can honestly say that I did both. The course is transformational and helped me to find clarity and direction for my future. I also met some wonderful people – other classmates - who together with Carol Ann and Lou Hamilton, provided ongoing support throughout.

I’m proud to be apart of the Pure Coaching Academy alumni and i have met lifelong friends in the process. Thanks to Carole Ann and Lou for your energy, knowledge and passion.

Lydia McDowall

The Pure Coaching Academy course has been a truly fantastic experience. I have learnt so much in the eight weeks, not just about coaching but also about myself. It's been a real journey. From day one we were given the courage, confidence and support to act as coaches. The group bonded really well and has formed a community that has extended past the end of the course and will no doubt go on long into the future. It's so reassuring to know that you're not just left on your own after course completion and to know you have the support of your peers. Training delivery was very relaxed and well structured, informative and inclusive with a good mix of activities and homework. The homework gave an insight into what it is we would ask of our clients and it was useful to experience that. The fact that we also learnt how to make a successful business out of coaching was an added benefit. The course notes were excellent and a great resource to substitute learning with, as were the mid-week tele classes where everyone could touch base, re-group and keep the momentum going. I found this course exceeded my expectations and I'm so glad I made the decision to do it when I did. I started out thinking that life coaching was a career I'd pursue one day way into the future, but this course has given me the knowledge and confidence to know that I am ready to do it now. Thank you so much Carol Ann, Lou and Suzanne.
