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.  (This module is included in the cost of the Clinical Hypnotherapy certificate)

An ancient book that opens with magic, the magic light in the darkness on the wooden table, by the bright light shining down as the power to search for knowledge, religion and background

The Life Coaching Certificate centres around the GROW model which provides a valuable framework for the coaching process and includes sample questions in sequence to assist the client to move forward and reach their desired outcomes.  In addition there is an excellent toolkit of activities and exercises which can be used prior or during a session and provides the opportunity for insight, self reflection and a bouncing board for both client and coach.  The MBTI personality test is also covered and will help those clients who specifically want career guidance.

Manifesting goals or cosmic ordering has found favour in recent years and in the spirit of light heartedness there is a look into the world of Feng Shui, the chinese art of geomancy or organising the environment to attract good fortune. You will learn how placing objects in specific places will aid goal setting.

Throughout the hypnotherapy course students will learn many NLP techniques that can be applied equally well in a focused state such as the ‘Swish’ or ‘Timeline’.  There is flexibility about delivery and it may be possible to do this course on an individual basis depending on the availability of the trainer.   Given that the combined Clinical Hypnotherapy and Coaching constitute 50 face to face teaching hours students will be eligible to apply to become an associate of The Association of Coaching.  This course is validated internally by IIPCH (International Institute of Professional Coaches and Hypnotheapists).
