And Just What IS Holistic Life Coaching?
What’s unique about our health and life coach certification is that it’s a hybrid of health coaching, life coaching, counseling, entrepreneurship, psychology, somatics (mind-body), holistic lifestyles and leadership training.
World School’s vision for excellence in holistic health and life coaching combines
The leading edge of holistic health and wellness coaching with
Beginning and advanced life coach certification training along with
Profoundly transformational work that affects absolutely the deepest core of human experience,
Personal health and wellness lifestyles training as well as
Somatics (Mind-Body-Therapeutics) and Positive Psychology
Advanced leadership training.
And just why is embodying all this so important for your career as well as generating a lifetime of success?
Because your personal transformation and ability to embody what you coach is key to your client’s transformation. And if your clients transform, they create outcomes that are real and that truly last. Always!
Receive an Authentically (w)Holistic Education
World School has been at the forefront of education in the holistic movement since it began in San Francisco nearly 35 years ago.
We use the term (w)holistic because our entire education is designed to support the full range our our student’s needs for health of body, mind and spirit.
That’s why we have courses in communication, mindfulness, stress management, nutrition, fitness, positive psychology, self-healing, thought-emotion repatterning, leadership and more.
As a starting point, we see our students and clients as “whole and complete,” i.e., no one is broken or in need of “fixing” or “treatment.”
Therefore, we don’t suppress symptoms, we facilitate release of the root issues so that sustainable solutions are found.
By (w)holistic, we realize that everything in the world and within ourselves is deeply inner- and interconnected. Additionally, we’re aware that our clients are connected to larger circles of family and friends and that these always need to be considered too.
Therefore, we consider the (w)hole range of client needs, not just their presenting issues.
In practice, authentically (w)holistic means that when it comes to our students, we consider far more than the development of their coaching skills and knowledge; we empower the transformation of their (w)hole being because it’s (w)hole beings who are most able to give others access to greater levels of (w)holeness as well!
HOLISTIC Life Coach = Holistic Health + Coaching Skills
Before you embark on a health coaching or life coaching career, interview any coach with 10 years or more of experience.
What they will tell you is that to have a lasting and successful private coaching practice and be able to promise results for your clients you will need more than basic technical coaching skills training and positive intentions.
excellent coaching skills training
powerful communication and empathy skills
holistic training (every aspect of a client’s life affects every other)
to learn to tune in to and balance your intuition and intellect
advanced coaching business skills and
to transform yourself extensively and effectively.
Why? It’s your ability to create tangible outcomes and results for your clients, to communicate empathetically, to be fully “present” with your clients, and even to be able to ask for money and get referrals that make the difference between a successful health and life coach and a dropout!
Our holistic health and life coach certification school has been addressing all these issues that are critical to client success and coaching business success for decades.
Discover what happens when you combine all of these skills with your passions and talents. It’s magical.
Breakthroughs in Health and Life Coach Training
Our holistic coaching and healing school has been asked to develop a holistic life coach certification and transformational training curriculum for over 8,000 schools as part of a global entrepreneurial development project involving over 190 countries.
We were asked to do this because World School is one of the few institutions in the world that approaches coaching, healing, leadership and personal transformation in such a profoundly and authentically holistic and integrated manner.
So for the last ten years our faculty has been working diligently with experts in quality improvement, behavioral outcomes, conscious intention, mindfulness and more to develop innovative holistic health and life coach training that generates breakthroughs in our coaches lives as well as in the lives of their clients.
The result has been over eight proprietary training manuals composed of many hundreds of pages of techniques that have been tested on hundreds of students. Just our orientation manual alone is over 200 pages in length.
Be clear, this holistic health coaching and life coaching certification training is not a weekend coaching certificate program designed to give you a transient egoic identity. It is rich and deep and is grounded in sound evidence-based holistic-psycho-social-spiritual-emotional-behavioral-clinical models and techniques that anyone can learn and that produce measurable client results.
More importantly, the outcome has been revolutionary approaches to coaching that create measurable and sustainable behavioral change in client outcomes. Come visit us and learn more.
Why Coaching for Bodyworkers
World School’s life coaching and health coaching certificate program began at the same time as did its massage and healing training, over thirty years ago. Why?
Because our intent in both our massage and coaching certification programs has always been to facilitate the development of the best possible transformational healer-coaches anywhere.
Massage therapists eventually learn that their client’s issues almost always have mental and emotional roots.
Coaching is ideal for emotional release and repatterning client issues.
What’s more, when client’s are receiving bodywork, they are in a uniquely and powerfully receptive state for coaching support.
Finally, it is well known today that focusing on life-giving goals is one of the keys to releasing chronic stress and physical issues.
If you want to be as powerful a bodyworker as possible, become a therapist-healer-coach. If you are interested, read more about our Holistic Health Practitioner Program that combines healing bodywork with health and life coach training.
As we shared above, World School’s Health Coaching and Life Coach Certification training began at the same time as did its massage and healing training, over thirty years ago. Why?
Because our intent in both our bodywork and coaching certificate programs has always been to facilitate the development of the best possible transformational healer-coaches anywhere.
Coaches will eventually learn that being able to be “tuned in” to their thoughts, emotions and intuition is one of the most important skills they can possibly develop.
Interestingly, bodywork training supports the development of intuition, self-awareness and presence in ways unlike any other training in the world.
Coaches will also learn that for many of their clients to achieve their goals, there are issues in their lives that will benefit powerfully from holistic healing approaches.
That’s why we include some of our most powerful healing courses in our coaching curriculum: to ensure that you facilitate your client’s healing and transformation as a foundation for the achievement and sustainability of their wildest dreams!
