What is a LifeCare Coach?

LifeCare Coaches help people make progress in life and business in order to attain greater fulfillment. As they work with you, clients will improve relationships, careers, and generally gain greater satisfaction in their day-to-day lives. Clients will identify the obstacles holding them back, come up with strategies for overcoming each obstacle, and rely on you to help them implement those strategies over time.

Is This For You?

Everyone has the potential to grow and develop emotionally, relationally, spiritually and professionally. This course will give you what you need to competently and responsibly help others unlock their full potential.

  • You want to serve others and create meaningful impact.

  • You are already in a position of helping others grow, and you're passionate about it, but sometimes you're not sure how to help them take next steps.

  • You are ready to set aside a little time each week to learn pro-level skills as you become a successful certified life or executive coach.

How does this work?

You can take as long as you like to complete this course. Each module will help you gain new skills and learn about the various elements of coaching.

By the completion of training, you will have developed greater awareness of your values and an increased competency in coaching, caring-for and leading others in your context - whether at home, professionally or in your church community. All students are given free entry to our private Facebook group where you can continue networking and sharing best practices!

Finally, a Professional Coach Training that's Practical & Accessible.

Included in the course

  • Modules

    12 hours of straight to the point video modules you can watch at your own pace.

  • LifeCare self-guided study book and training manual

    You will receive a hard copy manual and self-guided study that reinforce what you learn via video. The books teach the micro-skills necessary to build trust and rapport with clients, how past contextualizes present, tools to monitor and modify thought life, emotions, and behaviors, how to confront difficult circumstances to help clients find the joy and purpose of abundant life, and much more.

  • Example Sessions

    Also included are example sessions that show how to use your new coaching tools with real clients. These sessions help you go beyond an academic understanding of a technique and better grasp how a tool 'looks' when properly used with a client.

More Course Graduate Testimonials...

“I’m often the one helping others. The training gave me a chance to talk to someone about my own life who wasn’t there to judge me or fix me. It helped me grow, and made me want to help others grow as well.”

Course Graduate

“Even in the first session, I started to learn how important it was to not try to fix people, to not try to give them the answers, but to bring them to the place where they can understand that there is an answer, and that nothing they’ve done is too much to separate them from God, or a healthy restorative life.”
