A good starting point to learn more about the concept of Life Coaching and how it can help you in life. You will learn the latest techniques from a Certified Business and Life Coach with many years’ experience in this field. She has worked with over 300 trainee coaches to help them discover how they can break free from their own inner negative thoughts and not only help themselves achieve more but also help others.

This course offers an opportunity to practice new skills in a fun environment. It can enable you to learn to assess your life, learn to listen and help others come to terms with changes they may want to make in their lives too.

The course will offer a definition of Life Coaching, and will include looking above the line and below at how we behave. Find out more about some models and methods including the ‘GROW’ model, Wheel of Life, the meaning of ‘Be- Do- Have’ and how this can help in one’s own life. Explore some goal setting models including short- and long-term goals. Also gain rapport and consider the impact one’s self-limiting beliefs may have.

The course offers a good chance to try this new exciting field, less expensively in a fun and safe environment. A book list is provided along with the latest videos and Ted talks to continue independent learning. Why not come along and meet new colleagues and develop your new-found skills in a safe environment.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.
