This study explores the impact of coaching doctoral students at a university in London. A mixed methods approach was taken to identify themes which emerged from coaching conversations and the impact of coaching on these. All participants reported positively on their experience, highlighting that coaching enabled action, developed confidence and improved personal effectiveness. Some participants reported that coaching improved their wellbeing. This study suggests ways in which coaching helps postgraduate research students to address challenges they are facing and makes recommendations for the university where the study took place.
