Words from Our Graduates
A uniquely profound and educational experience. I enjoyed every moment, even when challenging! The combination of theory, practice and research gave a strong overall training which prepared us for professional life in a way that I couldn’t have anticipated. The personal journey was equally important to me as the professional aspects of the training.
The range of lecturers – this worked for me as I got to experience, and engage with, a wide range of existential practice. Engaging with many different perspectives provided a rich learning experience.
Studying at NSPC was life-changing, professionally and personally. It gave me confidence to build and develop my coaching practice.
Excellent, great staff, good mix of students and interesting modules.
The DCPsych changed my life and the direction of my career and allowed me to realise my life-long dream of becoming a psychological practitioner. The programme at NSPC, with its flexible and varied learning options, enabled me to fit in study with a busy career and family life. The quality of teaching was outstanding and the opportunity to explore a range of psychological-therapeutic theories enabled me to determine my own identity as a psychologist.
It was a huge learning experience in so many levels. Lecturers were experienced practitioners willing to share their experiences. A well-structured programme with small classes
I was allowed to create my own style of practicing and thinking without insistence on archaic and unhelpful psychological theories. Digby’s neurological expertise mixed with Emmy’s philosophical expertise created an environment where science and philosophy could coexist and thrive. The admin team of Dawn and Sasha were always supportive.
The combination of rigorous academic engagement and experiential encounter Exercises, with the deep commitment in philosophy and existentialism, have prepared me for advanced professional work in both private and institutional practice. I’m very grateful.
My time at NSPC was challenging, but life affirming and part of a key turning period in my life. One always had a sense that one was at a serious academic institution with high standards that one had to step up to. It opened doors to spheres of knowledge I had had no contact with before. Although I found this very hard for quite a long time, I now see how it sparked a thirst for personal development and experience that has helped me develop a new meaning and purpose for the second half of my working life. I am so grateful for having had this experience and sticking it out to a productive end, or at least stopping off point, before returning for more.
What never seems to amaze me is just how perfect, both in terms of content and timing, the NSPC modules are. This course, in my opinion at least, is so well thought through and constructed. I have studied psychotherapy and counselling elsewhere. One of my clinical supervisors also thinks so too.
Dear Prof. Emmy, thank you so much for your acknowledgment. Without the support of your wonderful team, your institution and your writings I would not be achieving this and be where I am now. However I am just celebrating the pass of my oral examination as I still need to make some amendments. You made a huge difference in my life, I feel blessed, humble & grateful.
I will be always grateful to you and all the NSPC staff for the amazing support and knowledge I received all these years
Studying at the NSPC has given me my dream job working 5 days a week across 3 busy acute hospitals in a diverse and mixed city.
Thanks for everything to you, and everyone else that has helped me over the years.
My journey on the MA in Existential Coaching with nspc has given me a wonderful qualification which is a great addition to my professional practice .Just as important ,the personal process of being part of a group deepened my self awareness and the support from the college was ever present..The course was at times challenging yet energising and life changing
I thoroughly enjoyed studying with NSPC and I learnt so much and gained so much confindence in the process.Teachers and peers were fantastic. The modules were stimulating and thought provoking which allowed for personal growth and deeper understanding of the Existential theory. I am so grateful for the learning and insight I gained over the last year which has helped me to move forward in my career.
