Becoming a Life Coach

Becoming a Life Coach either by starting a life coaching business or taking a life coaching job is mechanically fairly straightforward. It involves around three to six months (there is no deadline for completion) of intensive study of Life Coaching principles and 50 hours of life coaching practice, including an intensive training course and extended one-to-one coaching sessions. Here are some Life Coach Training Reviews of the life coaching diploma course. This may then be followed up with advanced coaching in additional skills areas and in operational support and business development assistance. For details on the course content and structure you can simply look at the Life Coaching Handbook Diploma Course details. Life Coaching is much more than just a training course. Becoming a Life Coach is not an easy option, nor is it a simple job, it involves embracing a philosophy and an ethical structure. We recommend joining International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring (IAPCM), a professional accrediting coaching organisation as this show commitment to high standards of coaching and professionalism.

Pathway to Life Coaching

People who have experienced Life Coaching Coach Course Reviews will often say that it has had a fundamental effect on the way they live their lives. Usually they initially investigated Life Coaching tentatively, perhaps with a degree of wariness, but with the hope that it would help them to find some kind of "better way". Whether they initially wanted simply to improve their private, business or social relationships or to develop their career path or to achieve a particular personal motivation, or to fundamentally change the way they lived their lives, almost all of them will tell you that Life Coaching has in fact brought them a heightened degree of personal satisfaction and a feeling that they have developed greater inner strength and focus. Also, many will say that they are better able to understand themselves and their motivations and can now move their lives forward with more purpose and direction, to not only achieve their initial goals but to accomplish a great deal more. Almost all will say that their lives have been fundamentally changed through Life Coaching.

Individuals on their own often find it difficult to create change in their own life. They may feel the need to find something different, something better, but they don't know what it might be, or how they might achieve it. Often they lack, or feel that they lack, the courage to face up to the challenge of making fundamental changes in their lives. Family, friends and colleagues often cannot help because they have a preconceived view of the person they think they know and have their own agenda for how that person fits into their own world-view. They often will not support and promote change in others if it threatens to force change in their own life-structure.

The Life Coach must have no preconceptions, no predispositions, no personal agenda and be mindful of your client. Each client is a unique individual, with their own needs, wants and desires. The Life Coach is there without condition; not to judge or assume or impose; but to act as a sounding-board and a mirror, allowing the client to understand for themselves the truth about their talents, their desires, their personality and the ways forward in their lives.

Life Coaching is based on the truism that everyone can achieve success in their lives, if only they can be brought to an understanding of what success actually means for them, and so long as they can commit to a positive course of action that will deliver success according to parameters which they themselves define. To become an outstanding life coach you will have been trained at the highest of standards, be passionate, enthusiastic and caring.
