Heartwood Specialist Diploma in Coaching

Course Content

This course is designed for counsellors, psychotherapists as well as therapists and people interested in finding out more about coaching skills or want motivation to achieve personal goals.  Many therapists offer coaching as an extra string to their bow, so you may find that taking this course will give you additional skills to use with your clients and give you the opportunity of attracting new clients to your private practice.  The course may also help you to achieve your own personal goals either personally or professionally.  The course will teach you how to work with clients to find a goal and then to achieve it.  We will explore the GROW model, case studies and different ways of helping clients to develop their belief in themselves, which is essential for the successful achievement of any goals they may set.  The course covers the use of affirmation, creativity and metaphor and ways of accessing passion (the non-romantic variety) and linking this to purpose.


You will learn how to use coaching skills within a therapeutic relationship and to identify and work with the blocks which clients use to self-sabotage their own success.
