The Best Way Forward
by Astra Chiapelli
I attended a Life and Business Coaching Certificate in Ireland a while ago, and it was my intention to follow it up with a Diploma with the same school. However, due to personal reasons, I had to cancel it. The course would have ran over 6 months, one full weekend a month, coupled with continuous assessment and final examinations.
As I am researching the web, Coaching is not very regulated at all across the globe, and there aren't set standards or minimum qualifications that one must have in order to work as a coach. There are International guidelines, but I have come across a few coaches who have enough experience and knowledge from different backgrounds not to need formal education in the area, and who are actively operating as coaches.
For my own sake, I think I would like to continue on further with my qualifications, and my direction of choice will be Life and Spiritual Coaching, which I guess will narrow it down to a smaller niche market.
I read that you trained with CoachU online, which is what would be ideal for me, as I am moving a lot and this would give me the freedom to be based anywhere.
What would you recommend?
Thanks a lot for all the resources you offer.
