Home Study Program in Systemic Coaching

This Home Study Course is Under Construction

Systemic Coaching: Diploma Home Study Course

Integrity is an extraordinary and powerful state of being. Integrity is a joyful expression of life that brings insight and understanding. Our mission is to coach people to untangle their entanglements, gain clarity and live with integrity.

We provide flexible and effective strategies to help people solve problems with integrity. You can study at home to obtain a diploma in Soulwork Systemic Coaching. 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 coach people who wish to change their lives, or the lives of others. Read some of the resources at this website and consider how our training is appropriate for you.

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

Benefits of this Course

Many people ask how to apply Soulwork solutions in their lives. It's not easy. Soulwork solutions are often counter-intuitive and paradoxical. During this Home Study course, an experienced Soulwork supervisor will help you learn and test your systemic coaching skills. The course includes:

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

Our programs are for responsible adults who want to change their lives - and the lives of others. Are you mature? Are you 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, however valid in formal medicine and traditional therapies, may become obsolete. This 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.

Your home-study supervisor will help you learn and succeed as a systemic coach. Your supervisor will have corporate or clinical experience, and offer cross-cultural perspectives.

Home-Study Groups

You are expected to join a study group to share information and experiences. Each group includes a Soulwork 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

You can coach 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 Soulwork 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. Use Soulwork to find what people really want - and help them solve blocks to their success. At some time, most people want:

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

Soulwork is not ordinary or classical coaching. You will coach people to alleviate relationship problems, emotional problems and spiritual challenges. You will gain maturity, wisdom and life experience.

Diploma in Soulwork Systemic Coaching

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

A diploma in Soulwork Systemic Coaching 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

As you develop your relationship skills, you will learn to help a wider spectrum of people.

Why Soulwork Systemic Coaching?

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

Our training will challenge your way of looking at the world. It will help you make sense of your life, and to make sense of other 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 fast internet access. And you will need a quiet room if you want to offer private coaching sessions.

Applications of Systemic Coaching

  1. Individual coaching, psychotherapy 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)
  5. Professional skill training, vocational counseling or rehabilitation
  6. Formal addiction therapy: drug /alcohol / weight loss programs
  7. Spiritual mentorship - life direction and sense of life

Our Home-Study Diploma is not a substitute for medical care or Soulwork Systemic Coach certification. This Home Study course provides you with the working basics.

My name is Stjepan Werft and I'm a Certified Soulwork Coach in Croatia. I spent two years mastering the extensive Soulwork systemic 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 this Soulwork Coaching is 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 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 Soulwork articles and practicing some 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?

Soulwork Training is for mature adults who take responsibility for their lives and who wish to solve emotional and relationship problems.
