What kind of coach will you be?
Our coaching course is a comprehensive training programme for people who want to become a life coach, executive coach, internal coach, associate coach or a specialist coach (such as wellness coach, relationship coach, youth coach, etc). By providing a foundational set of coaching skills, principles and competencies we ensure you can create your own path as a coach. The following offer just an idea of what you might do.
Become a Life Coach and Support Individuals Shaping their Lives.
Life coaching provides a space for someone to think in partnership with a coach about whatever they want to explore. This might be wrestling with difficult decisions, planning the next phase of life, choosing a career of aiming to improve a relationship.
For the life coach, the life coaching course provides the core skills in listening, questioning, reflecting and holding space whilst also layering in deeper theory and practice from a range of psychological schools.
The Animas life coaching course ensures that the coach will be able to work with a range of clients on whatever issues they bring from goal-achievement through to reflecting on the purpose and aims of one's longer life.
Like its cousin professions of psychotherapy and counselling, life coaching is here to stay and as the world presents people with more choice and complexity, so coaching plays an ever greater role. A life coaching course is the first step to become accredited and recognised as a professional coach.
Become an Executive Coach and Help Leaders Make an Impact.
Like the life coach, the executive coach works with individuals on what they bring to the coaching and this could range from personal challenges to concerns and opportunities within their careers and leadership. As such, it offers a rich and rewarding space to work as a coach.
Whilst some executive coaches might need a specific set of skills for a given organisation, at the heart of executive coaching are the coaching skills provided by our executive and life coaching course based on the the central pillars of non-directive, humanistic facilitation of someone's thinking and reflection.
The accreditation provided by our executive and life coaching course, Accredited Diploma in Transformative Coaching, is second to none for aspiring executive coaches given its accreditation by the three major professional coaching associations.
Become an Associate Coach and Work Across a Range of Organisations.
This development is something we welcome wholeheartedly as a coaching school since it enables coaches to generate meaningful work even if they don't want to market themselves through their own business.
Like the life coach and the executive coach, the associate coach needs a thorough grounding in the core skills and principles of coaching and they need to have accredited as a coach through a coaching school like Animas.
The Animas executive and life coaching course, the Accredited Diploma in Transformative Coaching provides all the key skills one needs as an associate coach and many of our graduates go on to work across the world in this capacity providing a varied and exciting client base and reliable coaching income.
Become a Specialist Coach and Develop a Varied Practice.
Examples of this include relationship coaching, mindfulness coaching, confidence coaching - in fact, the options are almost endless and it will be guided by the difference you want to make in the world.
An accredited life coaching course will provide the skills and ability to make a difference with coaching but in this instance, the coach will focus on a narrower range of clients.
If this feels like a path you would want to pursue, our life coaching course, the Accredited Diploma in Transformative Coaching provides the accreditation as a coach you need to ensure you have the confidence, capability and credibility to start your coaching business.
Many Animas coaches have gone on to create coaching businesses in this way and we explore how to do this in our Coaches Uncaged business community that is a free as part of our life coach course.
