Systemic Coaching Home-Study Diploma Program

Program Overview

Soulwork Systemic Coaching®  is a proprietary coaching format for individuals, couples, families and teams. It is rich in innovative methods for recognizing and dissolving difficulties, relationship problems, success blocks and life challenges. Our specialties include educational and relationship challenges.

We teach our Systemic Coach Training internationally - and our work will soon be available for home-study. You can learn a comprehensive program of systemic coaching in your own home. This correspondence coaching course is primarily for motivated people who cannot attend live training.

As you have no travel costs, this unique program represents an enormous saving. This accelerated educational format is our Home Study Program. See also Diploma.

Home-Study Email Groups

Although you can study this program by yourself, you are invited to join a small email study group. You are encouraged to share information and experiences. Each group includes a trained systemic coach supervisor. You will mostly communicate with your study group and supervisor by e-mail.

Systemic Coaching

You will learn how to understand your clients' concerns, complaints and problems - and you can turn your understanding into profitable skills. Once you've learned these skills, you can coach most responsible and motivated people. You will also learn when to refer clients to other professionals.

Start a practice


Your supervisor will answer your questions and offer you feedback on your assignments for one year (12 months of 2 assignment reviews and 3 extra emails each month = 60 emails).


Supervision is highly recommended for home-study students and is mandatory for a Diploma. Email supervision costs $100 US per month or $900 US per year, while personal supervision costs considerably more. As a student, you can extend your email supervision for the same low rate. You may continue obtaining this support after you graduate, to benefit from the wisdom and experience of a qualified systemic coach supervisor.

Your supervisor can review your video or audio recorded coaching sessions. Just send a copy by ordinary mail (please don't send the original in case of loss). The fee for reviewing a videotape, CD or audiotape, and providing written feedback on a one-hour videotape or audiotape is $100 US per recording.


As a home-study student, you will have 24 assignments to be completed over a 12 month period, or longer if you wish to extend your supervision. Each assignment will test your theoretical understanding, your ability to observe, your ability to ask appropriate questions and your ability to apply the information. Your supervisor can provide feedback on each assignment that you submit.

  • You can extend your 12-month home-study period, if you wish
  • You are expected to submit each assignment within two weeks
  • Each lesson and assignment should take about 4 - 10 hours to complete
  • You receive lessons and new assignments after each assignment is submitted
