Home Study Program
in Systemic Coaching

Home Study Course is Under Construction

Systemic Solutions: Diploma Home Study Course

Integrity is an extraordinary and powerful state of being available to every person. Integrity is a joyful expression of life that brings insight and understanding. Our mission is to help people untangle their entanglements and live with integrity.

Our Systemic Coaching offers flexible and effective strategies to help people solve problems with integrity. You can study at home to obtain our diploma in Systemic Solutions. You can gain the skills and qualification to solve problems and change lives. Perhaps you want to change your own life first - or perhaps you want to coach other people.

Techniques are for robots. Simple linear techniques are unlikely to manage complex relationship or emotional problems. Systemic Solutions can help you - if you're willing to change your life, or the lives of others, read some of the following resources and consider how this training is appropriate for you.

The home-study program is for people who want systemic coach training.
This structured course is experiential and cross-cultural.

Benefits of this Course

Many people ask us how they can  apply Systemic Solutions in their lives. It's not easy. Systemic Solutions are often counter-intuitive and paradoxical. During this Home Study course, an experienced supervisor will help you learn, test and improve your coaching skills. The home study course includes:

  • 24 detailed assignments
  • 24 systemic coaching lessons
  • Membership in an email study group
  • Private tips for your own development
  • A trained supervisor to advise you and give you feedback

Our programs are for responsible adults who want to apply
systemic principles to their own lives - and the lives of others.
This material is for mature people who are ready to work.

What does Systemic mean?

Systems refer to human relationship systems - from couples to countries. Systemic thinking, like the first emergence of the internet, is a ripple that precedes a tidal wave. As this paradigm shift matures, non-systemic training and qualifications may become as useful as candles in our electric age - a backup for unexpected difficulties. Our correspondence diploma course is for:

  • Coaches, counselors, therapists & educators who want to widen their horizons
  • Professionals who want to use systemic solutions within their professions
  • People who want to build a relationship coaching service from their homes

Campus-Free Home Study Program

Home study is increasingly used for academic instruction. Study at your own pace in your own home. Learn whenever and wherever you want. Get qualified feedback from trained supervisors. This course encourages you to communicate with your supervisor and other students, to make practice sessions with interested people and to share your results, comments and feedback.

During this course you will use email to communicate with your supervisor and other study group members. You will be coached to lead systemic coaching sessions with people on your own, without supervision. Your coaching lessons include simple observational tasks, which become more complex.

Your supervisor will help you prepare for more advanced coaching in which you develop your communication and coaching skills. Your supervisor can also provide feedback on videotaped sessions.

Reality Check

Your home-study supervisor will help you learn and succeed as a systemic coach. Your supervisor will have corporate or clinical experience, and may live in a different country to you.

Home-Study Groups

You are expected to join a study group to share information and experiences. Each group includes a trained supervisor. You communicate with your study group and supervisor by e-mail.

You can start this course whenever you want. You can take as long as you want to finish it - although other members of your group may graduate and leave. You can extend your one-year supervision. And, after you qualify, we can help you get started.

If you are a helping professional, this is an opportunity for
continuing education in the emerging systemic paradigm.

Coaching Clients

Soulwork helps people manage the underlying issues that prevent them from moving on. This is very different to ordinary coaching, guidance counseling, therapy, etc. Your typical clients will be intelligent people who are stuck - they do not know what to do next. Typical problems of your clients will be:

  1. Unable to change boring or dead-end work
  2. Coping with financial constraints
  3. Dealing with stress, anger and frustration
  4. Cannot find a partner or cannot leave an unsuitable partner
  5. negative emotions - guilt, sorrow, anxiety and anger
  6. Difficulties between parents and children
  7. Life doesn't make sense

Most people start coaching for minor issues -
only if they trust you will you hear about their bigger issues.

Systemic Coaching Skills

With our systemic coaching, you can help your clients unblock; and you can help them find integrity and life direction. You will learn how to look at life with fresh eyes. You can find what people really want - and helps them resolve blocks to their chosen success. At some time, most people want:

  • to change their jobs or careers
  • to resolve personal or relationship conflicts
  • intelligent support in making good decisions
  • to clarify or improve a relationship
  • to get their lives on track
  • to feel satisfied with work, partnership or life
  • more time for themselves

Systemic coaching is deeper than ordinary or classical coaching.
It includes dealing with health issues, relationship problems and spiritual challenges.
You will gain wisdom and life experience.

Diploma in Soulwork Systemic Coaching

You receive your Soulwork Coach Diploma after completing this certification course. A requirement for your diploma is that you make a coaching session on videotape or CD, or a personal evaluation with your supervisor.

With a diploma in Soulwork Systemic Coaching you can help you become a successful systemic coach. You can be well paid for helping people during the work hours that you choose. You will have rare skills and almost no competition. You can offer a broad range of services or a narrow specialty.

At one time or another, everyone needs coaching. You can coach people to change their lives. This course provides you with tools, techniques, suggestions, tips and ideas that you can use to build your coaching practice:

  • You learn how to set up your own coaching practice
  • You learn how to market your coaching services
  • You learn how to locate clients - and how to help them find you

Why Soulwork Systemic Coaching?

Many people avoid going to psychiatrists, psychologists or psychotherapists. They don't want to admit to problems they canít manage. Soulwork doesn't have such unpleasant associations. We help people solve their own problems. Soulwork focuses on measurable results!

Our coach training will challenge your way of looking at the world.
It will help you to make sense of your life, and to make sense
of people's lives. And, at times, it will shake you.

How busy do you want to be?

You may want one or two clients each week. Or you may want to work many hours each day. You will have few costs. You will need a telephone and a computer with internet access. And you need a quiet room where you can offer private coaching.

Applications of Systemic Coaching

  1. Individual coaching, therapy or counseling
  2. Couple coaching, pre-marital and marriage counseling and mediation
  3. Family coaching, family therapy and counseling
  4. Human Resources for organizations (stress relief, assertiveness etc)

My name is Stjepan Werft and I'm a Certified Systemic Coach. I spent two years mastering Martyn's extensive Soulwork coach training and that experience changed my life. I can tell you about my changes and maybe that will show you a little of what Martyn's Systemic Solutions are about.

My interest in human relationships brought me to Soulwork. At first I didn't understand. But after each training module, as I integrated the changes and knowledge that were passed to me, my life moved forward. I reconnected with parts of my life that I didn't even know were missing.

In one session, Martyn helped me to resolve a lifelong identity conflict which prevented me from integrating coaching and training with business, art and deep spiritual truths. Now I have my own coaching practice.

If you are brave and committed to personal development, something beautiful can happen in your life. It takes courage, determination and responsibility. You can choose now or you can take more time to think.

Some of my friends had success after reading some of Martyn's articles and practicing the skills with me. Maybe you need more information? Just ask.

This home study course includes:

  • Who needs coaching - and who wants coaching?
  • How do I find clients - and how do clients find me?
  • How much do I charge - and when should I do this free?

Our training is useful for mature adults who wish to
solve personal problems and take responsibility for their lives.
