‘Coaching is a relationship and a process by which the coach facilitates the success of others through a belief in that persons ability to find their own solutions and to enhance performance’
John Whitmore

When you ask someone a question, they need to think. While they are thinking there is a potential for them to change, challenge or develop their existing thoughts or behaviours.

Most people when faced with an issue, conflict or they are at a crossroads in their life, will consciously or subconsciously know the decision or path they need to take but sometimes it is difficult for them to see it or to prioritise. Effective coaching allows them to realise that they already know the solution and allows them to plan the steps they need to take to reach this end goal.

As a Coach you provide the necessary tools for people to achieve this and because they are the ones identifying the answers and how to reach them, their capacity for change and personal development are greatly enhanced.

Coaching, Life Coaching, Leadership Coaching etc. is the art of questioning to develop motivation and allow change that sticks. It is a process by which we can, through effective questioning, pauses and activities, open people’s minds to enable them to work through their own issues and how to plan the steps to make the change in their life.

It allows people to see outcomes of their change, before they have made the change. It allows people to challenge their own thoughts, to solve their own problems, to have the confidence to come off a pathway that is not working for them. It allows them to have the strength and courage to be themselves and know that they have control over their own destiny.

Effective coaching will allow people to see that they can change any direction that their life is heading in, just by having the right tools to be able to break their journey into manageable stages, challenge themselves, think about outcomes and finally REACH their goal.

How is the life coaching course assessed and what assignments and coursework is there?

The Life Coaching course is assessed through answering questions at the end of the learning and then 2 coaching sessions that you will complete and write up. You will have full tutor support to do this and you can submit your assessment as many times as you need. Your tutor will guide you through.

Can I call myself a life coach when I complete this course?

It is down to your own insurance company as to what they require for you to be a qualified Life Coach - some insurance companies may require a different qualification.

The information within the course is certainly enough to set yourself up as a Life Coach and get started, however, you will always want to develop and grow as you start coaching. It is only then that you realise what areas you want to further develop and which areas you feel confident in.

As there is no specific life coaching qualification that you need to do in order to call yourself a Life coach, the training is up to the individual. Some people feel they need more intensive face to face practical training, and others feel that they are happy without this and learn what they need online.

So, you may want to check with your insurance company about what they would require. This course is fully certified and insurable and will provide you with the information and advice needed to set up as a Life Coach.

This course is open to complete beginners or existing therapists, no previous experience required to attend.

This is an insurable online course allowing you to use this therapy with the general public and charge for it.

Student Feedback

Maria Pallett

Feedback: I thoroughly enjoyed studying Life Coaching. The course was very well planned to guide students through various aspects. As usual, Beth was extremely quick in responding to any queries I had. With other companies, I have often found that the online questions required to be answered by students do not cover all of the important points of the course. However, the questions in the Gateway assessment ensured that students needed to show a good knowledge of the key areas they had studied. The two sessions required for the case study reinforced everything I had learnt. An excellent course, which I would strongly recommend. Very good value for money.

Sarah Burch

Feedback: Beth is very encouraging, the whole course was very uplifting and inspring, under her instruction. I throughly enjoyed taking this course. I was able to study at my own pace, do my own research (which enhanced the learning process) and when it was convenient to me. I would highly recommend this course.
