“A wonderful synthesis of personal, systemic and spiritual work which was constantly grounded in the day-to-day challenges of coaching and organisational life. Inspiring but also deeply practical.” PS, PGCPLC graduate
Welcome to Psychosynthesis Coaching Limited, founded by Aubyn Howard and Paul Elliott in 2014. We run coach training and development courses for coaches who want to work at greater depth and recognise the whole human being in the way they work with clients. Our approach is based upon the psychospiritual psychology of Psychosynthesis, which serves to integrate systemic, somatic, mindfulness and developmental perspectives
Our flagship programme is the Post-Graduate Certificate in Psychosynthesis Leadership Coaching, which is validated by Middlesex University and can lead to coach accreditation with the EMCC (European Coaching and Mentoring Council) or associate membership of APECS (the Association of Professional Executive Coaches and Supervisors). This unique course is the result of a partnership between The Institute of Psychosynthesis, which brings 40 years experience of developing counsellors, therapists and coaches, and Psychosynthesis Coaching Limited, which is dedicated to meeting the emergent needs of the coaching profession and of leaders in organisations and society.
Alongside our open courses, we provide a focus for the psychosynthesis coaching community (from any training background) with our symposiums, forums, newsletters, psychosynthesis coach directory and supervision services. We also provide tailored short courses for coaches and leaders within organisations, with particular experience in the education, voluntary and pharmaceutical sectors.
“This course is so well structured that it ensures everyone gets what they came on it for and much more. The depth and breadth of content is breathtaking…” NL, PGCPLC graduate

More feedback from students:
“It has given me a solid framework in which to couch my coaching practice and I also feel liberated to follow my intuition as I continue to work on myself and with my clients.”
“A fantastic experience that I will never forget… the authenticity of Paul and Aubyn really elevated the course to a level I have never before experienced with a face-to-face course.”
“The course was full of integrity, there was such a depth of knowledge, and it was delivered with compassion and a connectedness rarely experienced around such a subject matter”
“I’ve received many gifts from this course, and it has been a real catalyst for deep change in me.”
“The peer group was magical and together we held each other and encouraged each other beyond belief. Paul and Aubyn were phenomenal guides, teachers, friends. They had the perfect balance of feeding our souls and our minds.”
“I feel so glad that I was able to do the course and have received a huge amount from it.”
“Loved the course! You created a wonderful alchemical flask for our transformation.”
“The opportunity to work at two distinct levels: the intellectual level i.e. the papers and the models and the ‘soul’ level i.e. working with thy dynamic process of ‘self’ as an instrument. Very powerful learning combination.”
“This has been by far the most powerful learning and growth experience of my career since I first became a coach…”
