What our alumni say

The courses were well presented and the content was sufficiently challenging. There was a good balance between theory and practice and the course website provided the follow-up and resources for reviewing. Full marks! The guest lecturers were very good and Laura was excellent. She added great depth to the topic with considerable research materials and was able to link together the various theories with practice throughout her course. Her style meshed well with my love of learning.

I’m so grateful to have participated in Positive Acorn’s inaugural ‘Coaching Wellbeing’ course with Laura Mantell. Laura so generously shared her scientific wisdom to create a super-rich learning experience – through live sessions, coaching demonstrations, presentation recordings, downloadable slides, journal articles, assessment tools and many other references. As a result, my wellbeing toolkit is bursting with evidence-based practices and materials that build confidence in clients as they experiment with new ways of being in the world.
