Welcome to Acorn Principle Plus
Working in partnership with a range of individuals and organisations, we provide services in response to expressed needs.
Since 2003, Acorn Principle Plus Ltd has been collaborating with organisations, teams and individuals to create ways for them to learn, connect, grow and give back to their workplace / communities.
Our mission and intention is to create the conditions and opportunities for growth, from supporting those at various stages on the road to coaching mastery, to working with leaders, sharing what we’ve learned about mindfulness and so much more.
From coaches-in-training to independent coaches running their own professional practice to experienced coaches developing skills in coach supervision, we aim to meet your expressed needs.
Whether we are developing coaching approaches in third sector organisations or co-creating qualified coaching pools in public sector organisations (such as the NHS, Scottish Government and Higher Education), our focus on continuing professional development is underpinned by ethical practice which is grounded in a recognised competence framework and established value base.
You will find out more about this and all that we offer inside, as well as getting to know who we are and how we can work with you.
For us, relationship is key, so we’d love an opportunity to chat with you about anything that interests you or anything you want to find out more about.
We are often told that partnering with us is a game-changer, so let’s see what we can achieve together!Get in touch
The Acorn Principle logo reflects the values at the heart of all we do:
Learn - Connect - Grow…and Give Back.
One of the ways we like to give back is through caring about our world, and we are delighted to support the work of Trees for Life, who hold:
"a vision for a revitalised wild forest, providing space for wildlife to flourish and communities to thrive."
This aligns so much to what underpins our coaching philosophy: to hold space, to create conditions for real growth and to support coaching communities to flourish and maintain sustainable growth.
For every person who trains with us, we commit to PLANT A TREE on your behalf in the Acorn Principle Grove.
So, know this: when you come to learn with us you are also helping the planet, and somewhere in the Scottish Highlands a tree is growing because of you.

The Inspiring Partnership Approach
Our work with groups is based on the simple premise that when we focus on giving to others, on using the talents, experiences and commitment that a small group of people can share with each other, then amazing things will happen for each participant.
Collaborating in this way means that each person has a team behind them, rooting for them, encouraging them and inspiring them to achieve their goals.
These partnerships may share a common interest (such as leadership, coaching or coach supervision) or they may bring their own unique areas for growth Our experience of working in this way has shown us that the collective capacity fulfills Simon Sinek's call to action; 'don't give to get, give to inspire'.
