Qualification -CERTIFICATE IN LIFE COACHING

Open Learning - Life Coaching Certificate Course

  • For people who have some knowledge, but need to broaden the scope and depth of their skills to provide holistic support to clients
  • Help people develop a better state of wellbeing and balance
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Boost your career options
  • Get a new rewarding and challenging career which you love

The task of the life coach is not to analyse the client, but to work with the client to understand his or her perceptions, the underlying beliefs and attitudes that may be creating barriers to personal wellbeing and contentment. In this work, the life coach needs to harness the cooperation of the client, who may initially resist all suggestions of faulty or limiting perceptions. Some reasons that we resist changing our perceptions are: laziness (because it takes effort), confusion or uncertainty, fear of conflict with those who share our old perceptions, fear of change itself, and desire for certainty and psychological comfort.

You may or may not be a graduate of another course at certificate, diploma or degree level; or this may be your first formal qualification.
