What our students say

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’.

Daragh Browne – Feedback from our Tutored Student in Germany

Dear Julia,

Thank you so much for such ‘great news’ and thank you for my ‘Distinction award’ in Sports Psychology and Dynamics!

I must say as a Kung Fu Elite coach that your Sports Psychology Diploma is a must and an invaluable tool to be used with my students. I am so proud to have enrolled this course.

Now I will focus on finishing Sports Nutrition (which I have to say; it is also a must for training) and start preparing my next courses.

All the best, and thanks so much for the teachings!

Hi Julia

May I say how much I have LOVED my course in Nutrition, delighted to have received a ‘distinction’ award – learning so much more about what I already love has only evoked deeper love and appreciation for my body and taking care of it. I hope to grow further and develop my business well so as to help as many people as I can!!

Thank you for taking the time to mark my papers and assignments and for this journey!

Hi Julia

Oh my goodness! – I’m so pleased to receive your lovely message and to hear that I passed with a Grade A, Distinction, I am chuffed to bits. This is a similar feeling that I had in 2002 when I sneaked a 2.1 in my 3 years BA Hons degree in Politics and French!

The Nutrition 50+ course was brilliant, so well written, and just suited the way I like to work. My little hobby for the last 45 years has been modelling and I belong to 9 model agencies throughout the UK, and so have always wanted to take reasonable care of my health, to scrub up well for the location shoots.  It is crazy how obese the country is becoming, so I’m hoping to combine modelling advice/deportment/presentation etc. with nutritional therapy.  Not quite sure how it will take place, but now I have more confidence to include Susie Godwin Nutrition on the Services page of my website – http://susiegodwin.com/ Clearly I must make a start on the 2nd course first 3 lessons in Business and Marketing which was kindly sent to me…!

Kindest regards,
