We support people and organisations in their development, so that they can open powerful new possibilities for themselves and those around them.

We have a distinctive developmental approach to coaching, leadership and organisation development. And we run a highly regarded and internationally recognised School of Professional Coaching in partnership with New Ventures West, producing coaches and leaders who can skilfully support the development of others.

Our professional coaching programmes change lives – for those who come on them, and for the people they go on to support in their workplaces and in the wider world.

“I just wanted to express my wholehearted appreciation for the Coaching to Excellence course. It offered so much insight into making sustainable, long-term change possible for our coachees and rarely have I experienced such a deep connection with course-mates and trainers. It felt like learning by living.” Krisnah Poinasamy, Economic Justice Policy Adviser and Coach

“Coaching to Excellence was a significant and gently transformative experience for me. Such a beautiful course. I got a taste of what it is to be held in a carefully designed and robust structure, delivered and supported with such care, sensitivity and skill.” Amanda Maffett

“The two intense days of ‘Coaching to Excellence’ were probably the most poignant I’ve had in a while and certainly the most memorable. They stand out as an oasis of calm and order and sense for me in an otherwise busy, busy world. It’s so good to have been a part of something special and to be so deep in with people I’d never met before in such a short time. I know all of us were touched by your generosity of spirit and kindness; and this I’m sure circulated back to and fro amongst all of us. The skills you have woken in me now make me feel like a kid with a new toy, and I’m keen to practice with it.” Mark Leader, Executive Director

“I was already an experienced coach and wanted to further develop my skills, more specifically with the intention of being able to go deeper with my clients, helping them beyond their immediate preoccupations. I am absolutely delighted I made the decision to go with thirdspace and New Ventures West; I find the integral development methodology very complete, rigorous, systematic and humane. It helps me not only with my clients, but also with myself. It was a tremendous self-development experience. The thirdspace team are thorough, loving, fun, experienced, knowledgeable, and they truly care about their students.” – Jean-Stéphane Szijarto, Switzerland
