I have been able to demonstrate many of the elements of the course immediately, and see the results in provoking the right conversations, as well as providing areas of focus that aid in alleviating tensions, and pointing toward solutions. Leah has pitched the course to comprehensively cover pertinent topics with her own flair in a manner befitting high-quality professional development. I would recommend it wherever applicable.
Thank you so much for coming and training us in Conflict Resolution. The team got so much out of it, and still talk about tools they use.
With Leah's enthusiastic approach I was motivated to examine much more than the basic requirements of the course. Her depth of knowledge in this arena not only surprised me but empowered me to pursue all aspects of it to ensure I had a really good understanding of what it entailed. Leah had presented the course in a professional yet warm and personal way and which allowed her students to become closely acquainted with the subject. Her passion for helping others is highly evident and via this avenue she is able to encourage others to be the change they want to see in themselves and in the world around them.

Leah, this is awesome, something to be really proud of. I am so glad you are here but more than that, that you are offering yourself and your expertise to the world. The world is clearly a better place for your presence. Thanks again for everything.
A real insight, I can see how far behind I was - beautiful!
I want to express my appreciation for your brilliant training. I am thrilled with the experience you provided and the level of practical work and theory. Thank you so much, you brought theories to life...All the training that you do has been deeply rewarding. I've grown in unexpected ways not just personally but professionally in each. Your enthusiasm is infectious and highly appreciated.
Leah, you have assisted me to broaden my career options beyond what I was considering.
The courses are good. I enjoy studying online in my home. It is easier and preferable to going to university. Staff are supportive, assisting me to succeed.
Leah is a wealth of information and useful in terms of teaching content. It has been vital to how we learn and apply the skills.
For a long time, I was frustrated in my position waiting to be promoted. With Leah's help, I was able to land my dream job and get promoted in my company. She gave me key skills to perform well in my job interview. My communication, confidence, and abilities were evident. The feedback I received was that I shone and was the standout for the position. I would recommend her.
Thank you so much for teaching us. It has been an excellent experience for me and has increased my understanding ten-fold. You are an amazing teacher and I've always enjoyed your enthusiasm.
Leah, you have been absolutely invaluable today. Worth more than your weight in gold.
I loved the How to Focus and Manage Your Mind course as it was very relevant for a wholistic approach to work and life. The activities were useful. I feel re-energised after having completed them and feel like I have a new tool I can use any time. I really enjoyed the activities.
How to Focus and Manage Your Mind was excellent! It was easy to follow with a good balance of text and white space. Simple, relevant and easy to follow. The highlight of the course was the circle of influence section and the inclusion of other reading materials.
I just completed the Mindfulness for Work & Life and the quality and relevance of the course content was excellent and very relevant. There was a great range of meditations and activities and the highlights of the course were the guided meditations ...
I recently did the course How to Plan Your Retirement. It was very thorough with lots of links and resources. It was well presented easy to follow contained all the information you would need to know plus a good range of activities. I also found the financial guidance section extremely useful...

One of the best decisions I've made during the pandemic is to take this course. Given the extra amount that I have spent at home during lockdown, I have reflected on the career path I am currently on, the career goal that I push my self to achieve and the gap between the two. Taking Leah's course has helped me realise that the career I dream of isn't too far from where I currently am during this pandemic. All I needed was the right strategies - which she discussed in the course so well. Thank you for this heaven-sent course, Leah!
The journey of exploring what 'retirement' might look like was supportive, challenging and at times even exhilarating. Leah Shmerling is a wonderful coach and combined with the 6-hour online course I now find myself so much clearer, better equipped and enthusiastic about what retirement holds and the steps I will take.

Many sections of the modules (of the Retirement Planning session) were very good in allowing focus on the realities of the decision to retire. Online course allowed me to progress at my own rate when I had the time to focus and think about the questions being asked and the consequences of the decision to retire.

Prior to undertaking the Introduction to Career Counselling and Coaching course I was unsure if Career Counselling/coaching was something I would be interested in pursuing. However, when I was about a quarter of the way through I began to understand the different areas of the role and realised that this career path was something I would be passionate about. I was inspired and motivated to continue learning and understanding more. The course not only provided me with the foundations but allowed me to understand how I could use my prior teaching skills and experience to really help and guide individuals in understanding the best career path for them. The course was insightful, easy to understand and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The actual website was easy to follow and navigate making too.
The Foundations in Career Practice course will provide you with the tools to be a successful career coach or counselor, whether it's your first time taking this type of education. The ten (10) modules are made up of small sessions and build on each other so that by completing them all students can build an impressive portfolio for themselves as well learn new skills such as being able to work independently without supervision or opening their own career coaching practice. This course is not all theory, there are lots of opportunities for putting what is learned into practice. I found the course easy to understand and easy to do and it will be a great course for anyone working with unemployed people, students or people wanting a career change.

Foundation in Career Counselling and Coaching Practices... I see this course content as very useful to the work I do as a counsellor and coach, and I found that it aligns well with my person-centred, solution-focused approach. I found the course materials to be well explained, clear and logical. I particularly liked the clarity of the approach required in coaching, namely that the process is collaborative and that the focus is on the client's identified goals and wishes.
I would recommend this course to others who wish to work in the field of career coaching and counselling

I completed the online course "Foundation in Career Development" written by Leah Shmerling from Career Coaching Training. I found the course to be excellent. The overview of the range of theories underpinning the process of pursuing career pathways was comprehensive, succinct, and extremely well presented. The various online assignments and career assessment tools were invaluable in assisting the process of both understanding individual strengths and priorities as well as exploring the various pathways and career opportunities available.
I thoroughly enjoyed completing the course, it was an extremely useful and relevant professional development program and it was invaluable in helping in my future career pathways. I highly recommend this course for anyone exploring their future and their career trajectory.

Just letting you know that I have reviewed the Foundation in Career Development Practice course that you sent me. I found this easy to access and navigate and the formatting I believe suited the online nature of the program. The information was presented in a clear manner and I liked the combination of Visuals, links, and videos to support the topics which were being presented. The activities for each topic brought them to life and gave the participant an opportunity to relate the material back to their own lived experience which is crucial for a topic of this nature. I think modules such as this will make the learning experience for your students very positive as they work their way through them.
Good luck with it and well done!
