"I attended the Xenonex level 7 certificate training programme with some relevant prior experience, but had no idea of the personal development journey I would go on! I found the course to be stimulating, practical, theoretical and really enjoyable. My fellow classmates had a wealth of experience to learn from and the excellent tutors encouraged and challenged us at every step. Susanna Prout and Louise Wembridge from Xenonex both have years of experience which was evident, and they each provided support and guidance on theory, practice, and assignments which was helpful. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend Xenonex for coaching training, due to the quality of the teaching and the resources and support provided."

Would recommend to anyone looking to take the next step or struggling to understand what’s holding them back."

In addition to the excellent core teaching and observed coaching, I particularly liked their approach of bringing in experts on specific elements of coaching such as resilience. The Xenonex team were unfailingly supportive during the period when I was building up my coaching hours and completing the required assignments. They are establishing an impressive alumni programme targeted at networking, peer support and professional development. Based upon my high quality experience, I would highly recommend Xenonex for coach training."
