My name is Daragh Browne and I am an Irish national living in Germany. I have been working as a self-employed language trainer for about 10 years in Germany. Before that I worked as a therapeutic assistant in a drug rehabilitation center.
After toying with the idea for a while, I decided to train as a coach and chose “The School of Natural Health Sciences” as a provider. I was and am very impressed with the effectiveness of C.B.T coaching and Life-Coaching. I am very interested in psychology and consider myself well-read on the topic, but I found that psychology provides a lot of diagnostic information though not enough solutions.
Due to my prior experience in the therapeutic field, I firstly thought it was a matter of going “through the motions” so to say. However, I was very wrong. My tutor opened my eyes to a ‘new horizon’ and showed me that some things take time. It dawned on me that coaching was a different “ballgame” to what I had been used to and I needed to rethink how I see situations in connection to coaching and positive results.
I found the interaction with my tutor to be very informative, efficient and gave me a chance to reflect on my work. It enabled me to learn new things, question old beliefs and move forward. I thought the course would be a lot easier than it was. I now feel equipped and ready to approach the world of coaching due to my courses.
Studying coaching was like a “eureka effect”. I thought to myself, this all makes sense and is pretty easy to apply. I could compare coaching to “positive psychology” and training your brain to be your friend. I was extremely impressed with the chapter on the Greek philosopher “Epictetus” and his way of coping with difficulties and his work as a teacher of mankind.
I will continue to learn with “The School of Natural Health Sciences” as I have been working in education for the last 10 years and education standards very much vary, I can recommend taking these courses.
I feel that this school has helped me further myself professionally and given me what I needed at a ‘fraction of the price in comparison to other providers’.
