Student Success Stories

Hazel McCorrisken – My Continuing Personal Journey

A few years ago, a friend in our Church mentioned the Glasgow Institute of Counselling - I never knew it existed.

I spent a whole year pondering, looking up the website, wondering if I had the courage to apply to study.

Eventually, one day, I did - and it was the beginning of a wonderful journey of discovery and hopefulness ..that I am still travelling on, one which I feel will never end.

I have been so, so, lucky having Mr William Stewart as my Tutor.

I can remember sending in my very first assignment to William and emailing him to say I might need a little longer as I had not completed it very well - his reply, was, of course, - "have a go, look up and aim high!”


Dr Mark Biddiss – Coach, Mentor and Trainer

Complementing my nearly 30 years in education training and teaching, and after I gained your diploma in Cognitive Coaching and Mentoring, my wife Nikki (currently studying the Cert in Coaching) and I used the 'credentials' to devise and deliver a 'Coaching and Mentoring for Teachers' training half-day and whole day options for school teachers, complete with full teachers' notes. This adds to our range of teacher training options - see the following URL for details on our website:

I completed the three-part course with you in March 2014 and have thus far delivered three such training days (two days delivered the week before last) with a fourth booked in for October - and earned £2,200 already. Not bad. A quick glance at the teachers' evaluations showed that almost all gave the day an overall good/excellent rating. Our aim is to receive excellent evaluations for all our work.
