Certificate in Life Coaching

The Coaching module was introduced to the Hypnotherapy Certificate Course in recognition that many hypnotherapy clients want additional coaching to achieve life goals or that some people wish to steer clear of “therapy” yet still want assistance in gaining clarity about direction or support whilst working towards their life aims.  It also allows the hypnotherapy student to start working immediately they complete their combined hypnotherapy and life coaching certificate.

The Life Coaching Certificate is also a stand-alone course in its own right.
The course centres around the GROW model which provides a valuable structure to the coaching process and includes sample questions to overcome resistance and create effective outcomes.  Another valuable component of the course is the toolkit of questionnaires and activities which offers guidance to the coachee – these can be used prior or during a session.  The course constitutes 35 hours (4 days + 3 coaching sessions) and costs £450.  There is flexibility about delivery and it may be possible to do this on an individual basis depending on the availability of the trainer.   35 hours coaching instruction along with 40 hours delivery of coaching is the required element to apply to become an associate of The Association of Coaching.  This course is validated internally by IIPCH (International Institute of Professional Coaches and Hypnotherapists).  There is a practical assessment and 2 case studies to be submitted.
