some of Jimmy Petruzzi testimonials

“I have been co-delivering workshops and doing interviews with Jim and had an amazing time during it. Jim has such a deep knowledge of the human behaviour and expertise on how to help people change it. Our interviews and workshops have mainly been around human mind as I am a neuroscientist and I was genuinely impressed with Jim’s knowledge about the human brain and deep interest in this area. I have no doubt that with his profound understanding behaviour and the root causes of it and enormous experience in NLP, hypnotherapy and other techniques Jim can handle any case of changing human behaviour and pioneer new techniques of how to do it. I also believe Jim is a great researcher and can achieve lots in this area too. It is always a real joy and bunch of insight working with him so would highly recommend it to anyone!”

Gabija Toleikyte, Ph.D

“Petruzzi, an Australian, is one of the best qualified coaches of his kind in the world. He has worked with several top players from teams including West Ham and Crystal Palace and his advanced training methods look like paying dividends on the pitch.

The lads have taken to him and shown belief in his methods but his work is structured and a long-term thing.”

Chris Casper, former Manchester united defender and former Manager of Bury FC

Following graduating from an online course Jimmy and I met to discuss factors around life coaching. Jimmy has a genuine willingness to support, advise and stretch new ways of thinking. I would like to thank Jimmy for inspiring me to push boundaries and to take risks without any self doubt. Mindset coaching from Jimmy, has elevated me to broaden curiosity in the world of professional performance coaching"

"Hi Jim,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all your help and guidance, and for sticking with us through a very difficult year, for doing your best to provide an interesting and meaningful experience for us and preserve the integrity of the course itself in the face of all the obstacles.
It cannot have been easy for you, and your hard work and dedication on our behalf is very much appreciated.
I have really enjoyed working with you and I am genuinely sorry you will not be with us throughout the rest of our course.
Thank you. I have learnt a lot from you.
I hope to see you again soon.

Regards"

“My Son Jordan visits Jim once a year for a 6 weeks course, he has been going to see Jim since he was 14. He has always been a Talented Footballer, but he needed something extra to help him achieve his Football Goals. I can say that the time he has spent with Jim has changed my Sons life both on and off the Football Field. with all the help and advise he has given him both Physical and mentally. My Son now has a 2 year Professional Football Contract; visits Jim every year for top up sessions We cant thank Jim enough for everything he has done to help Jordan achieve his Goals and I don’t think my Son would be were he is today if we hadn’t met Jim.”

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
