Nearly everyone feels “stuck” at some point in life. Unfortunately, not everyone is trained, insightful or objective enough to offer the best advice. But now you can be! At Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA), we offer a comprehensive 100-hour Life Coaching program online that covers all the core competencies as outlined by both the International Coach Federation (ICF) and the International Association of Coaching (IAC).*
Life Coaching is an ongoing partnership in which clients have a unique opportunity to deepen their awareness, improve their performance, overcome their obstacles and enhance their quality of life. Coaches use questioning, exploring, reporting, and consistent commitment to move the client forward. With greater focus and awareness of choice, achievement of life goals is accelerated.
*SWIHA is not affiliated with the ICF and IAC. Please contact these organizations for information on their optional certification and membership programs.
Great coaching, whether we label it business coaching, executive coaching, personal coaching, spiritual coaching or whatever coaching, all boils down to one thing: bringing out the very best in yourself and others! The potential benefits of Life Coaching are so numerous and so highly individual, we couldn’t possibly list them all – but here are a few:
[accordian title="What is Life Coaching?"]
“Life Coaching” is an exciting new profession designed to help you embrace your greatness and bring out the greatness in others. Having a coach is like having a personal trainer for your life. The coaching process involves expanding awareness through a combination of clarification, motivation and powerful, thought-provoking questions. Any or all aspects of life are addressed: relationships, personal goals and projects, business success, life transitions, and more.
[accordian title="How does the coaching process work?"]
Life Coaching begins with the knowledge that each individual already has the answers to their problems deep within them, even if they think they don’t. Coaches use specific tools and techniques to empower people to find their answers. Clients feel improved balance in their lives and can often move their passions and dreams to actions and reality. Coaches can empower executives to become inspiring leaders, assist entrepreneurs to bring a new business to success, challenge an individual to accomplish a goal, and support a person’s spiritual outlook in their everyday life.
[accordian title="Why would someone hire a Life Coach?"]
Nearly everyone has felt ‘stuck’ at some point. Professionally trained Life Coaches guide people to examine their present circumstances, discover what obstacles or hurdles might be in the way of moving forward, and help them create a plan of action. The goal is to bring people from where they are now to where they want to be. Coaches support and encourage without passing judgment. Hiring a Life Coach is truly an act of self-empowerment. By defining their own values and clearly outlining a personal mission, a person can approach life with a fresh perspective, sense of direction and renewed enthusiasm.
[accordian title="Would I make an effective Life Coach?"]
If you are a clear communicator and compassionate individual who enjoys helping people, you would likely make an excellent Life Coach. You may already experience people turning to you when they need to talk about personal challenges. When they receive insightful feedback from you, they are empowered, grateful, and you feel a sense of fulfillment. Our Life Coaching program will help you develop that natural ability and refine your skillset, leveraging your gifts and talents into a rewarding career.
[accordian title="What are the benefits of receiving Life Coach training?"]
Life Coaching is a rapidly growing profession that is very different from consulting, therapy or counseling. Coaches are sought after in many areas today including personal, family or relationship coaching and spiritual coaching. Organizations also contract professional business and corporate coaches. Whether you are acquiring a coaching education to start your own business or to enhance your personal or professional skills, there is tremendous professional potential in being a Life Coach.
