Blended and Distance Learning

The Co-Director of the Distance Learning Programme at the Centre is Kasia Szymanska, a Chartered Psychologist. Due to a variety of commitments many potential course participants are unable to attend formal courses at the Centre or International Academy. We have developed distance and blended learning programmes to help people in this position to learn more about coaching, stress management, therapy and other areas.


The Life Coaching and Stress Management distance learning courses focus on providing information about the topics and also personal development. They are not designed to train the participants to practise on other individuals. However, the courses may provide a useful insight into coaching and stress management. Some experienced professionals may be able to integrate what is learnt into their normal practice. The tutors who mark the assignments are experienced and qualified practitioners.
•Life Coaching: A Cognitive Behavioural Approach
•Stress Management

The first is suitable for individuals who already have considerable coaching training and experience and wish to proceed direct to one of our blended learning Diplomas following completion of this Certificate and the second programme is suitable for professionals wishing to undertake self-directed Continuing Professional Development and Education (CPDE) under academic supervision:
