Next available course - 26th & 27th November and 17th & 18th December.


About the Time to Think Coaching course

This course, delivered over four days, will give you everything you need to take this process into your coaching practice. It introduces the 'Spectrum of Independence', exploring how and where Time to Think can enhance your coaching practice, giving you real, tangible ways of working to take with you. After completing the course you’ll undertake the Practicum work, supervised by Sophie, as a Time To Think Faculty member. Once successfully completed, you’ll be welcomed into the Time To Think Collegiate, qualified as a Time To Think Coach and be eligible to join Nancy Klines quarterly collegiate meetings in London. 

This course is not for the faint hearted – it is demanding regardless of whether or not you decide to complete the practicum because, quite rightly, it challenges you (in a supportive way) to hone your skills in using and embracing the Thinking Environment and it’s Ten components both as a practitioner and coach. However, it is well worth it and throughout you are supported by Sophie who is a skilled, compassionate and highly intelligent teacher who embodies the ten components in all that she does by providing the right environment; managing to meet all of our physical and emotional needs whilst guiding us through the course.

If you are already a coach, as I was, and really want to embody the Time to Think philosophy into your coaching practice, then I would really recommend that you complete the practicum following the course. It provides both rigour and quality assurance for you and your clients in the concepts, theory and practice and Sophie will guide you; both challenging your thinking and encouraging you with respect and equality. If you are not already a coach and want to undertake this course to develop coaching skills, then I can’t think of a better way to embark on what will become a life changing experience. Sophie is a gifted teacher who whose approach exemplifies what Time to Think Coaching is all about. It’s not just a job for her but a way of life and that shows in all she does and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
