How Do I Gain Credible Life Coach Certification?
by Linda in the U.S and Natasha in Australia
These are two questions posted separately. My answer to both is below.
I'm interested in getting a life coach certification; however, I do not know if I can just take the exam. I have a bachelor’s degree in human services and psychology and a Masters degree in applied psychology with a specialization in industrial and organizational psychology.
I'm not sure where I stand and would appreciate any advice on steps to take from this point.
And from Natasha in Australia
I am starting my 2nd year at uni doing social science, majoring in coaching!
I really would like to start my own coaching small business but I am confused on how I do so!
I have contacted a few schools and they have told me that I don't need to fully complete my studies to start as a life coach....is this right?
Also, as a life coach do I need to belong to an association of any kind? I realize perhaps for support but otherwise I'm not so sure!
My passion is to help people as much as I can! Considering that I am only 28 I would like to have my niche as young women, 16-28! To start with! Any advice or help will be great!
