Q: Do you have to be “certified” to legally function as a life coach?
A: Certification is not required in order to begin coaching clients for a fee. Professional training, however, is an obvious first step that will show you multiple ways of coaching people in authentic experiences that position you at your best. Prospects and clients care most about what you can do for them.
Some individual training organizations and associations, such as ours, offer their own certifications. Each vary in terms of time, fees, and examinations required.
For some programs, it can take many months and sometimes years with quite a financial investment to get all the pieces in place. It’s very important to be as professional and proficient as possible when practicing life coaching as you are dealing with people’s lives. Certification is a personal and professional choice based on finances and a coach’s desire for competent training and perceived “credentials”.
Q: Do I have to have certain qualifications to be accepted into your program?
A: – Potential coaches should have a strong sense of self, be confident, and be authentic.
– Potential coaches should be willing to grow and develop themselves.
– Potential coaches should be great listeners and filter out their own emotions, judgments and conclusions.
– Potential coaches should be curious about people and have a healthy sense of compassion.
– Potential coaches should live in integrity, tell the truth, and know how to get their own needs met.
– Potential coaches should not be attached to outcomes and can become neutral for the client’s agenda.
– Potential coaches should be financially responsible and act like an entrepreneur and business owner.
– Potential coaches should have balance in their lives and have a strong support system.
– Potential coaches should have good boundaries and know that the client knows what is best for them.
– Potential coaches should be intuitive, direct, creative, and willing to take the chance of being wrong.
– Potential coaches should have a genuine relationship with the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ.
– Potential coaches should have a workable understanding of the Holy Bible and its principles and promises.
Q: Is Christian life coaching different from Christian counseling?
A: Yes. Coaching is very different from a counseling, consulting or mentoring relationship. The coach doesn’t solve the client’s problems, offer consultation or advice to the client. A life coach comes alongside a person to help them through their challenges to move forward with confidence in the midst of change.
Coaching is not for those who need therapy to overcome disruptive painful pasts, but is for relatively well-adjusted people to build vision and move forward toward the future. It’s NOT about healing. It IS about growing and change. The best coaching is done by listening, asking questions and appropriately responding.
Counseling or therapy deals mostly with a person’s past and trauma and seeks healing or restoration while coaching seeks to help a client get from where they currently are to where they want to be.
Q. Can you really teach me what I need to know in only 10 weeks?
A: Yes. We can teach you what you need to know to get started in life coaching with a professional and Biblical foundation.

Q: Do you keep in touch with your students in an ongoing manner after graduation?
