Coaching psychology is a fast growing and relatively new approach to the enhancement of human performance in work, relationships and life in general. Coaching psychology is an applied positive psychology course and sits at the intersection of counselling, clinical and organisational psychology.

The Master of Science in Coaching Psychology is an articulated postgraduate program which teaches the applied science of human performance enhancement and coaching. Our main focus is on coaching in business and organisational settings.

This program provides you with a sound grounding in the theoretical and methodological aspects of coaching psychology and teaches fundamental applied coaching skills. The program aims to give you the knowledge to be a skilled coach, capable of coaching in an extensive variety of settings and with a wide range of clients including executive, management and personal coaching. The Coaching Psychology Unit seeks to enhance the performance, productivity and quality of life of individuals, organisations and the broader community, through excellence in education, research and the practice of coaching psychology.

Sydney advantage

Ensuring students receive the best available training, coaching psychology is taught by practising coaching psychologists, and training and management consultants, all of whom have extensive experience in their specialised fields and many of whom have international reputations.
